Pluot Filled Fillo Cups with Honey Almonds
2 pluots, chopped
¼ cup dried apricots (chopped)
1 ½ Tbs. honey
¼ tsp. nutmeg
½ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. vanilla extract
15 mini fillo cups

Preheat oven to 375. Toss the pluots in honey, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla, set aside. Make the crushed honey almonds. Distribute the pluots evenly into the fillo cups and top with almonds. Bake at 375 for 12 minutes. Alternatively, you can evenly divide the almonds in the fillo shells and top with fruit then bake as directed. Serve immediately as they will get soggy.
