8 frozen phyllo dough sheets, thawed
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
6 Tablespoons no-sugar-added black cherry fruit spread
1 1/2 tablespoons cherry liqueur (optional)
1 egg
1 teaspoon cold water


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly brush each phyllo sheet with butter; stack. Cut through all sheets to form six (5-inch) squares. Combine fruit spread and cherry liqueur, if desired. Place 1 tablespoon fruit spread mixture in center of each pile of eight phyllo squares; brush edges of phyllo with butter. Fold edges over to form triange; gently press edges together to seal. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Beat together egg and water; brush over phyllo trianges. Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
