Fresh Fruit

This was supposed to be a Napoleon dessert...

But I burned the layers-oops! I had a recipe using phyllo dough to create layers of crisp phyllo, yogurt, cream, blueberries and raspberries. Each layer of phyllo had butter flavored cooking spray and cinnamon sugar sprinkled on the top. I over baked them and they tasted burned and bitter. So I went to plan B.

I had some Vanilla Cinnamon Biscotti in the freezer that I thawed out. I used maple flavored low-fat organic yogurt (Wallaby brand~ it is sooo good!), light whipped cream and amaretto liquor.
I think it turned out great. Yeah for plan B!

Plan B Yogurt Surprise

1/3 cup maple flavored yogurt (or your favorite flavor store brand)
1/3 cup light whipped cream
2/3 cup each of blueberries and raspberries
1 tablespoon amaretto liquor
4 vanilla cinnamon biscotti (or your favorite flavor store brand)

In a small bowl, mix the amaretto into the yogurt and fold in the whipped cream. Place mixture in the freezer for about an hour. Place one scoop of the yogurt mixture into a dessert dish and top with berries. Place the biscotti along the side and add another tablespoon of whipped cream if desired.
Serves 4 (or less if your like me)

This sounds yummy!

You know...I never call anything a "surprise" now, because everyone seems to figure out that it's a plan B and that I messed something up!
