Recipe Ingredients:

4 ounces figs, chopped
1 (8.25-ounce) can crushed pineapple chunks, undrained
1/2 cup water

4 ounces phyllo dough
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 teaspoons granulated sugar

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).

  5. Evenly divide and spoon about 1 teaspoon of the fruit filling in each cup.

  7. Cool before removing from the pan.
