|-----COOKING LIGHT; NOV/DEC 1993-----|
|2 cups||Fresh cranberries|
|¼ cup||Plus 2 tablespoons firmly Packed brown sugar|
|2 tablespoons||Amaretto (almond-flavored Liqueur)|
|2 tablespoons||Semisweet chocolate Mini-morsels|
|⅓ cup||Firmly packed brown sugar|
|1||Tub (8-ounce) light process Cream cheese product|
|½ teaspoon||Vanilla extract|
|8||Sheets frozen phyllo pastry; Thawed|
|1 tablespoon||Powdered sugar|
Combine first 3 ingredients in a saucepan; stir well. Cook over medium heat 7 minutes or until cranberries pop and mixture thickens; stir frequently.
Spoon into a bowl; stir in chocolate. Set aside.
Position knife blade in food processor bowl, and add ⅓ cup brown sugar and next 4 ingredients. Process until smooth, and set aside.
Coat a 9-inch pieplate with cooking spray. Working with 1 phyllo sheet at a time, coat each sheet with cooking spray. Fold phyllo sheet in half crosswise to form a 13- x 8-½-inch rectangle. Gently press folded sheet of phyllo into prepared pieplate, allowing ends to extend over edges of pan; coat phyllo with cooking spray. Place another folded sheet of phyllo across first sheet in crisscross design; coat phyllo with cooking spray. Repeat procedure with remaining 6 sheets phyllo.
Spoon cream cheese mixture into phyllo crust, spreading evenly. Spoon mounds of cranberry mixture over cream cheese mixture; swirl with a knife for a marbled effect. Crumple edges of phyllo to fit pan and form a rim.
Bake at 325 deg for 35 minutes or until phyllo is lightly browned and filling is set. Let cool on a wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
