 1-1/4 cup Fischer & Wieser Whole Lemon & Fig Marmalade
3/4 cup dried figs, chopped very finely
1/4 cup water
2 (2.1 ounce) packages mini phyllo shells (such as Athens)
1/2 cup (4 ounces) fat-free cream cheese, softened
1 (4-ounce) package goat cheese
1 large egg white
1 tablespoon 1% low-fat milk
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt

Combine Fischer & Wieser Whole Lemon & Fig Marmalade, dried chopped figs and water in small saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer 15-20 minutes, until figs soften and liquid reduces.

Combine cheeses in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Add egg white; beat well. Add milk; beat well.  Combine sugar, flour and salt; add to cheese mixture, beating well. Spoon about 1-1/2 teaspoons cheese mixture into each phyllo shell. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
