Fun with Fruit Friday…Yogurt & Mixed Berry Filled Puff Pastries

With all the rich foods served around the holidays, I decided I’d make a dessert that wouldn’t totally consist of butter.  After a little research, I couldn’t find what I was looking for, so I made a recipe up: Puff Pastries filled with yogurt and a mixed berry compote.

Ingredients & materials: 
1/2 32 oz container vanilla yogurt
12 oz bag assorted frozen berries
1 box puff pastry shells
ground cinnamon
4 tbl honey or sugar
whipped cream or whipped topping

cookie sheet
medium sauce pan
large spoon

Serving Size: 8-12 puff pastry shells

Puff Pastry Shells:
I used Pepperidge Farm & followed the instructions on the box: remove the tops of the shells, put on cookie sheet & heat in oven per box directions.  Set aside to cool at least 15-20 minutes.

Berry Compote:

  • 4 tablespoons honey  (or sugar, to taste)
  • Sprinkle of ground cinnamon
  • 1 (12-ounce) bag assorted frozen berries

To prepare compote: put the berries in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add honey & cinnamon; bring to a light boil. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated & remove from heat w/lid. Keep warm, but not hot.

 

Once the pastry shells have cooled, add a scoop of vanilla yogurt into the bottom of each shell, filling about 1/4

Fill the rest of the shell with the berry compote.

Put the pastry shell tops on top of the berry compote & add whipped cream or whipped topping to the shell…Can also be served with ice cream!

Enjoy!
