  • 8 ounces 1/3 less fat cream cheese

  • 1 large egg

  • 3/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 2 small apples very thinly sliced

  • 3. Combine remaining 2 tbs sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon in a small bowl. Lay a single sheet of phyllo pastry flat on a cutting board. Spray with nonstick spray and sprinkle to the edges with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Fold sheet into thirds and press gently to flatten. Cut in half.
  • 4. Place one square into a mini tart pan and gently press down around the bottom edge. Repeat with the second square, but offset the corners from the first one.
  • 5. Place a scant 1/2 cup of the cheesecake mixture into each tart pan. Place apple slices in a circular pattern, letting them slightly overlap as you go around. Sprinkle any remaining cinnamon and sugar mixture on top of apples.
  • 6. Bake tarts for 20-25 minutes or until center is set and phyllo pastry is a deep golden brown. Let cool and refrigerate at least one hour before serving.
