Method
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 160ºC/Fan 140ºC. Lightly grease a muffin tin with a small amount of reduced-fat spread.
  2. Mix the sultanas and apple together in a bowl with the cinnamon, golden syrup and hot water. Leave to one side.
  3. Dab some reduced-fat spread over a sheet of filo pastry. Fold the short ends into the middle so that they are overlapping to form a rectangular shape three pastry layers thick. Cut into two roughly equal 10cm squares.
  4. Place each square into a well of the tin. Repeat with the remaining sheets, giving you eight pastry shells.
  5. Divide the fruit mixture evenly between the pastry shells. Crinkle the edges of the pastry up a little to hold the mixture in place.
  6. Bake in the oven for 7–8 minutes until the pastry has crisped.
  7. Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve warm or cold as preferred.
