Sweet Potato Tarts

Try these light and low-fat personal pies for dessert during the fall. They're a great substitute for pumpkin pie or sweet potato casserole.

8 oz phyllo dough, thawed
2 c sweet potato, steamed or roasted, flesh only
1/2 c dark brown sugar
1/2 t salt
1/2 t pumpkin pie spice mix, plus additional 1/2 t for dusting
1/4 c low-fat evaporated milk
1 t vanilla
1/2 c egg substitute or 2 egg whites
1/2 c fat free whipped topping

• Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

• Spray 24 mini muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.
• Remove phyllo dough from packaging.
• Slice into 1 inch strips, then cut each strip into 2 inch segments.

• Using 3 layers at a time, fill the cups, spraying cooking spray between each layer.
• Repeat process three times.

• Remove skin from sweet potatoes and allow to cool to room temperature.
• Place sweet potatoes, sugar, spice mix, milk, and vanilla in the bowl of a food processor.
• Blend until smooth.
• Add eggs and blend just to incorporate.

• Fill cups to the top of the muffin pan.
• Bake 18-20 minutes, until custard is set and pastry starts to brown.

• Once cooled, top with 1 teaspoon of fat-free whipped topping and a dusting of pumpkin pie spice mix.

Makes 12 servings (two tarts per serving).
