Apple Snow on Phyllo Leaves

Photo: psfreeman

Amazingly light and temptingly creamy, this unique recipe is elegant enough for dinner guests. Apple Snow can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for up to 2 days. If you want to make your own applesauce, follow the recipe for Homemade Applesauce. Instead of phyllo cups, use a cookie cutter to cut leaf-shaped sections of phyllo dough and then bake. Instead of cinnamon, try sprinkling apple snow with crumbled vanilla wafers or your favorite cookie.

Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Chill: 1 Hour


  • 2 1/2 cup(s) applesauce, store-bought
  • Powdered egg whites and water equivalent to 3 large egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) cream of tartar
  • 3 sheets (14 by 9 inches) frozen phyllo dough, thawed
  • Butter-flavored cooking spray
  • Ground cinnamon


  1. Step 1 Place the applesauce in a large bowl and chill for 30 minutes.
  2. Step 2 In another large bowl, beat the powdered egg whites and water with a mixer on slow speed until they begin to foam, about 1 minute. Add the cream of tartar and beat at high speed until shiny, stiff peaks form, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Step 3 With the mixer still on low speed, add the applesauce, 1/2 cup at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl with a spatula. Then beat the applesauce and egg-white mixture on medium speed for 1 minute until the mixture is stiff enough to hold its shape on the spatula.
  4. Step 4 Spoon it into a serving bowl, cover with Saran™ Cling Plus® Wrap and chill for at least 30 minutes.
  5. Step 5 Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Then lightly spray the cups of a standard muffin tin with cooking spray. Also lightly spray three sheets of phyllo dough, dust each with cinnamon, and layer the sheets one on top of the other. Cut into 8 rectangles approximately 3 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches to fill 8 cups of a standard 12-cup muffin tin.
  6. Step 6 Gently place each phyllo rectangle halfway into the muffin cup, letting the edges come up a bit (as shown in photo). Bake in the oven for 3 to 5 minutes until light golden brown. Carefully remove the baked phyllo cups and cool them on a baking rack. These can be made ahead of time and stored in an airtight container.
  7. Step 7 Place each phyllo cup on a plate, spoon in apple snow and sprinkle with cinnamon.
