(Makes 4 servings)


Phyllo* dough cut into 12 4”-squares
Nonstick cooking spray
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
Whipped cream, if desired

Heat oven to 350°. To make phyllo cups, place 1 square in bottom of muffin tin. Lightly spray bottom of second piece of phyllo with nonstick cooking spray; layer over first square in muffin tin. Repeat with third piece of phyllo. Make 3 more phyllo cups following same procedure. Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and cool.

Meanwhile, mix strawberries, sugar and vanilla; let marinate for 15 minutes.

To serve, spoon strawberry mix into phyllo cups; top each with 2 tablespoons yogurt. Garnish with whipped cream, if desired.

* You’ll find phyllo dough in the freezer section of the supermarket. Thaw it before attempting to work with it. You’ll have to buy much more than you need for this recipe, but you can refreeze what you don’t use and keep it for months in the freezer.
