Berry & Yogurt Phyllo Nests
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + cooling
- 6 sheets phyllo dough (14 inches x 9 inches)
- Butter-flavored cooking spray
- 2-1/2 teaspoons sugar, divided
- 1/3 cup vanilla yogurt
- 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
- 1 teaspoon orange juice
- 1/2 cup halved fresh strawberries
- 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
- 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
- Fresh mint leaves, optional
- Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a work surface; spritz with butter-flavored spray. Top with a another sheet of phyllo; spritz with spray. Cut into six squares. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap to avoid drying out.) Repeat with remaining phyllo.
- Stack three squares of layered phyllo in each of six muffin cups coated with cooking spray, rotating squares so corners do not overlap. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon sugar into each cup. Spritz with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the yogurt, orange zest and juice, and remaining sugar. Spoon yogurt mixture into cups; top with berries. Garnish with mint if desired.

I have a question about the quantities. 1/3 of a cup of yogourt divided in 6 portions is only a couple of spoonfuls and 1.5 cups of fruit will give each person 1/4 cup of fruit. This seems like very small servings to me. A cup of fruit isn't solid - it has a lot of air in it.Has anyone made this? Were they tiny?
