Tortilla Cups with Yogurt and Fresh Fruit
Try different flavor variations, like adding a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg along with the sugar. Ice cream would be terrific in place of the yogurt.

- 6 flour tortillas (6-inch)
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 cups plain yogurt
- 3 tablespoons light-brown sugar
- 1 1/2 cups fruit, such as berries or sliced nectarines, peaches, or plums
- 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly brush both sides of tortillas with melted butter and sprinkle both sides with granulated sugar. Lay tortillas over 6 jumbo muffin cups (tortillas will overlap). Bake until tortillas are soft and pliable, 3 minutes. Remove from oven and, with the bottom of a glass, gently press each tortilla into a muffin cup so it folds up and forms a cup shape. Bake until tortillas are crisp and golden at edges, about 12 minutes. Immediately remove tortillas from cups and let cool completely on a wire rack, 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together yogurt and 2 tablespoons brown sugar. In another small bowl, toss together fruit, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, and lemon juice. To serve, divide yogurt mixture among cooled tortilla cups and top with fruit.
