Recipe Continues Below


  1. Mix strawberries with 3 tablespoons of the sugar; refrigerate while juices develop, at least 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheet with foil. Lightly brush melted butter on all sides of each bowl. Place 3 tablespoons of the sugar in large resealable food-storage plastic bag. Place bowls, a few at a time, into bag, and gently shake until bowls are coated in sugar. Place bowls on cookie sheet. Bake 5 to 8 minutes or until browned on edges and firm to the touch. Bowls will crisp as cooled. Remove to cooling rack to cool.
  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.
  4. Use slotted spoon to divide strawberries among bowls. Top with a dollop of whipped cream; garnish with crushed shortbread cookies and mint leaves.

Expert Tips

  • If you like your strawberries with chocolate, drizzle the filled mini strawberry shortcake bowls with a little chocolate sauce.
  • Sliced bananas make a nice addition to the strawberry filling in the strawberry shortcake tacos.
  • If your strawberries are less ripe, refrigerate them with the sugar for longer, up to overnight. The sugar will help soften and break down the fruit.
