lots of lime file tartlets on silver foil. filo looks like flowers filled with a white creamy lime filling

Serves 2

2 syns per tartlet

5-10 minutes preparation, 10 minutes cooking,

Low calorie cooking spray
1 Filo pastry sheet (48x25cm approx) cut into 12 squares
125g quark
Zest and juice of half a lime
Zest of the other half lime to decorate
2 tbsp. Granulated Sweetener

Spray a bun tin with low calorie cooking spray and using 4 of the moulds layer 3 squares of filo pastry in each one, spraying between each sheet with cooking spray and laying then on diagonally so when cooked the points are all spread around making a nice nest. Bake the 4 nests for around 10 minutes in an oven preheated to 180c, until golden and crisp. Set aside and allow to cool.

Beat together the sweetener, quark, lime juice and lime zest (finely grated) and then split between the nests. Grate the remaining zest to decorate the tops of the tartlets. Best served immediately.

Please note the syns of this are based on using one sheet of “jus-rol filo sheets” 45g (6 syns) to make 4 tartlets. If using a different brand or size sheet the syns may need to be adjusted accordingly.
