Thank you Hungry Girl for some more YUMMY desserts.

Hungry Girl’s Healthy Personal Peach Pies 
Prep: 15 minutes   Cook: 10 minutes

Serving: 1/12th of recipe (1 mini pie): 47 calories, 0.5g total fat (<0.5g sat fat), 55mg sodium, 10g carbs, 1g fiber, 4.5g sugars, 1g protein,  SmartPoints® value 1*

Ingredients:

12 small square wonton wrappers (stocked with the tofu in the refrigerated section of the supermarket)
1 tbsp. cornstarch
3 cups finely chopped peaches (fresh or thawed from frozen; no sugar added)
2 tbsp. brown sugar (not packed)
1 packet no-calorie sweetener (like Truvia)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Dash salt
1 tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread, room temperature
Optional toppings: light whipped topping (like Skinny Truwhip or So Delicious Dairy Free CocoWhip! Light), additional cinnamon

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick spray.
  • Place a wonton wrapper into each cup of the muffin pan. Press it into the bottom and up along the sides.
  • Lightly spray wrappers with nonstick spray. Bake until lightly browned, about 8 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a nonstick pot, combine cornstarch with 1/2 cup water and stir to dissolve. Add all remaining ingredients except butter. Set heat to medium. Stirring frequently, cook until peaches have slightly softened and mixture is thick and gooey, 6 – 8 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, and stir in butter/buttery spread.
  • Spoon peach mixture into wonton cups, about 3 tbsp. each.
  • MAKES 12 SERVINGS

HG Tip: If you’re not serving all of these the same day they’re made, don’t add the filling to the wonton cups. Store the cups at room temp in a sealable container or bag. Store the filling in the fridge in a sealed container, and fill the cups right before serving.
