- 1 lb strawberries, sliced (4 cups)
- 7 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- 10 Old El Paso™ Taco Boats™ mini soft flour tortillas (1 sleeve from Party Pack)
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup crushed shortbread cookies
- Mint leaves
Step 1 Mix strawberries with 3 tablespoons of the sugar; refrigerate while juices develop, at least 30 minutes.
Step 2 Meanwhile, heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheet with foil. Lightly brush melted butter on all sides of each boat. Place 3 tablespoons of the sugar in large resealable food-storage plastic bag. Place boats, a few at a time, into bag, and gently shake until boats are coated in sugar. Place boats on cookie sheet. Bake 5 to 8 minutes or until browned on edges and firm to the touch. Boats will crisp as cooled. Remove to cooling rack to cool.
Step 3 In chilled small bowl, beat whipping cream, remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and the vanilla with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.
Step 4 Use slotted spoon to divide strawberries among boats. Top with a dollop of whipped cream; garnish with crushed shortbread cookies and mint leaves.
