Peachy Phyllo Packets
Flaky layers of pastry surround a warm, spiced filling of fresh peaches and raisins. “Everyone loves these. They’re so good and quick to make,” says Agnes Ward of Stratford, Ontario.
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + standing Bake: 15 min.
- 2 cups chopped peeled fresh peaches
- 2 tablespoons raisins
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons plus 1-1/2 teaspoons brown sugar, divided

- Spray one sheet of phyllo dough with butter-flavored spray. Sprinkle with 1-1/4 teaspoons bread crumb mixture. Cover with a second sheet of phyllo. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.)
