8 ounces cream cheese (regular or light), at room temperature

1 jar (7.5 ounces) marshmallow cream

teaspoon grapefruit zest

3-4 tablespoons fresh grapefruit juice

4 boxes (1.9 ounces each) mini phyllo shells (15 pieces per box)

- cup strawberry jam

In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and marshmallow cream until smooth and well combined; start out low and increase speed. Add grapefruit zest and juice and mix on medium until well combined.

Put the mixture into a frosting decorating bag fitted with a large star tip. (Alternately, put the cream mixture into a plastic bag and cut off the corner.) Pipe filling into each tart shell, filling almost to the top.

Top each shell with teaspoon strawberry jam. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Serves 30.

Cook's note: If you have leftover cream, don't throw it out. Spread it on graham crackers or vanilla wafers.
