Kraft Kitchen Tips!
The phyllo cups can be baked ahead of time. Store in airtight container at room temperature up to 24 hours. Fill as directed just before serving.
For a refreshing citrus flavour, add the zest and juice of 1 lemon. Prepare cream cheese filling as directed, adding lemon juice with the sugar. Sprinkle tarts evenly with lemon zest just before serving.
For a maple-walnut twist, prepare cream cheese filling as directed, adding 1/4 cup maple syrup with the sugar. Top each tart with 1/2 tsp. chopped toasted walnuts and a drizzle of maple syrup just before serving.
