Preparation

  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Line cookie sheet with foil.
  2. Lightly brush melted butter on each entire bowl to coat. In small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of the sugar and the cinnamon; sprinkle inside and outside on bowls. Place bowls on cookie sheet. Bake 6 to 9 minutes or until browned on edges and firm to the touch. Bowls will crisp as cooled. Remove to cooling rack to cool 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix strawberries, peaches and blueberries; stir in remaining 2 teaspoons sugar. Let stand 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. In another small bowl, mix Greek yogurt and honey. Fill each bowl with 1 tablespoon yogurt mixture; top with generous tablespoon of fruit. Garnish with mint sprigs. Serve immediately, or refrigerate until serving.

Expert Tips

  • Try a different flavor of yogurt for the filling.
  • Make sure to chop the fruit small enough to fit in the bowls.
  • For a cool treat, try freezing finished boats for 1 hour before serving.
  • Traditional Spanish and Mexican churros are sweet dough spirals that are deep-fried and coated with a cinnamon-sugar mixture.
