1/2 c Low-fat milk
1/4 c White all-purpose flour
2 tb Lemon juice
2 ts Grated lemon rind
1 ts Vanilla extract
4 Sheets phyllo pastry
1 1/2 tb Unsalted butter or margarine

3 oz Dried apricots; roughly
1/2 c Unsweetened apple juice

1. Preheat the oven to 325F. Generously coat a 9″ pie plate with
vegetable cooking spray.

2. In a food processor or blender process the cheeses, sugar, egg

of the butter or margarine. Trim the overhanging pastry leaving a 2″
border all around.

(There’s an illustration that I can’t really reproduce here that

4. Place the filling in the pan, roll the outer edges of the
overlapping pastry toward the filling, tucking it in and rolling it
to create a rim. Brush the edges lightly with the remaining butter or
