Cheesecake Phyllo Cups

Lorraine Chevalier of Merrimac, Massachusetts borrowed this recipe from a friend, whose husband is diabetic, and has been making the colorful cheesecake bites ever since. Topped with kiwifruit and mandarin oranges, they are just delicious.

    Made these recently for a small get together. Easy and light! Also used sliced strawberries.

    I used wonton wrappers and cooked them ahead. I substituted mixed berries because I had them on hand. there are just two of us, so we will see how they freeze.

    I make Birthday Cakes for the girls in the office. This months birthday girl is on a diet so in lieu of a cake I made these. They are very easy and delicious. I kept the by the door in the office--every time someone went to the restroom they left with one of these in hand. Next time i would use 8oz cream cheese & 8oz sour cream. This recipe is a keeper.
