Prep: 10 minutes

15 frozen mini phyllo shells (like the kind by Athens)

1/4 cup whipped cream cheese

3 tbsp. reduced-sugar apricot preserves

2 1/2 tbsp. golden raisins, or more for topping, chopped

2 tbsp. sweetened shredded coconut, or more for topping

1/2 oz. (about 2 tbsp.) chopped pecans, or more for topping

Optional topping: dried apricots


Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Bake shells on a baking sheet until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.

In a medium bowl, combine all remaining ingredients. Mix until uniform.

Evenly distribute filling into the phyllo shells.


HG Heads-Up: Can't find reduced-sugar apricot preserves? You can use sugar-free or regular preserves. You can even switch up the flavors!
