      3/4   c            Granulated sugar
    3 1/2   tb           Cornstarch
      1/4   ts           Salt
    1       c            Boiling water
    2       tb           Nonfat egg substitute,
                         -equivalent to 1/2 egg
    1       t            Butter
    1 1/2   ts           Grated lemon zest
    2       tb           Fresh lemon juice
    6                    Filo dough sheets, thawed
                         -according to package
                         Butter-flavored, non-stick
                         -cooking spray
                         Powdered sugar
   The flaky texture of filo dough combined with a creamy
   lemon curd filling makes a great-tasting, low-fat
   dessert. Rather than using butter, spray the sheets of
   filo dough with butter-flavored, non-stick cooking
   spray to keep the fat content low. The lemon curd
   contains almost no fat. Only a small amount of nonfat
   egg substitute and one teaspoon of butter were added
   to the filling for flavor.
   Combine granulated sugar, cornstarch and salt in
   medium saucepan. Stir in boiling water until blended.
   Heat, stirring constantly, to boiling. Heat and stir
   until thickened and clear, about 1 minute. Add some
   hot cornstarch mixture to egg substitute, stirring
   until blended.
   Return all ingredients to saucepan. Heat and stir over
   low heat until slightly thickened, being careful not
   to curdle mixture. Stir in butter until melted. Stir
   in lemon zest and juice. Let cool to room temperature,
   then chill.
   Place one sheet of filo on cutting board. Spray evenly
   with butter-flavored cooking spray. Repeat layering
   with second and third sheets of filo dough. Cut
   stacked sheets into eight strips lengthwise. Cut
   strips in half crosswise to make 16. Arrange one strip
   of file sheets into each of 16 mini-muffin cups to
   form nest shape. Repeat with remaining three sheets
   filo dough.
   Bake at 350'F. 5-7 minutes or until golden brown.
   Remove to wire rack to cool.
   Dust filo cups with powdered sugar. Fill with lemon
   curd. Makes 32. Each pastry contains about: 34
