1994 Winner - Coffee Merchant, Angela Baxter

• 2 sheets phyllo pastry
• 2 tsp soft margarine/butter melted
• 2 tbsp chopped almonds, toasted
• 1 1/2 tsp icing sugar
Lay single sheet of phyllo on counter; brush with half of the margarine. Using scissors, cut crosswise into three 5-inch wide strips; fold each into thirds to form square shape. Using scissors, round off corners and gently mold into muffin cups. Repeat with remaining phyllo to make 6 shells. Bake in 400°F oven for 5 minutes or until golden.
Apple Filling:  
• 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
• 1 tbsp lemon juice
• 1/2 tsp cinnamon

In heavy skillet, combine sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon; cook over medium heat until bubbly. Add apples and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until tender; let cool slightly. Spoon into prepared shells. Sprinkle with almonds; sift icing sugar over top. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes six servings.
