Ingredients

  • 45 Mini Fillo Shells 3 boxes, thawed
  • 4 cups pitted red cherries
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1 recipe of Cream Cheese Whipped Cream

Instructions

  • Add the cherries to a saucepan and cover and cook over medium heat; heat the cherries until they release their juice and come to a simmer, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir often.
  • In a bowl, whisk the sugar with cornstarch until smooth; pour the mixture into the hot cherries and juice, and thoroughly combine. Reduce to low heat, bring to a simmer, and cook until the filling has thickened, about 2 minutes; remove from heat.
  • Add approximately one cherry and sauce to each of the tart shells and let cool to set.
  • Once cooled, prepare Cream Cheese Whipped Cream and pipe onto the top of the mini pies.

Notes

You can substitute regular whipped cream instead of cream cheese whipped cream if you prefer.
