Spiced Pear and Fig in Phyllo

Ingredients
2 cups dried pears (about 8 ounces)
1 1/2 cups dried figs (about 6 ounces)
2 1/2 cups water
1/4 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
8  full sheets phyllo pastry
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Directions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly coat the cups of a 12-cup muffin tin with canola oil.

Slice pears and figs into strips. Place in a medium saucepan with water, lemon peel, vanilla, cinnamon and cloves. Cover and bring to a boil over medium heat.

Reduce heat and simmer until most of the water is absorbed, stirring frequently. Cover and set aside.

In a small bowl, mix the sugar and ground cinnamon.

Using 4 sheets of phyllo, lay one sheet on a work surface (keep remaining sheets covered with a damp towel to prevent drying out). Mist with canola oil and sprinkle with a pinch of sugar mixture. Top with another phyllo sheet and repeat the process for 2 more layers. Cut into 6 equal squares. Repeat process with 4 more phyllo sheets.

Arrange squares in lightly oiled muffin tins, to form cups. Mist tops with canola oil spray and bake in a 375 degree oven for 5 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and let cool on a rack.

Fill each phyllo cup with 1/3 cup of the warm fig and pear compote.
