Fresh Fruit in Baked Tortilla Shell

"Light, crispy, fruity, creamy! Spring is here and it's time for cool, fresh fruit desserts. The possibilities are endless once you create the shell. Use prepared seasonal, local fruits, or go tropical with pineapple, mango, and coconut."

Ready In:
1 bowl




  • Baked Tortilla shell:.
  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Place flour tortilla on flat surface, completely moisten the top side with a little water using a pastry brush or fingertips. Place the tortilla in a tortilla baking mold that has been sprayed with cooking spray. The dry side will become the inside of the "bowl".
  • Generously pray the inside of the "bowl" with cooking spray (or using pastry brush, brush generously with melted butter) and sprinkle with the cinnamon and sugar.
  • Bake from 5 to 10 minutes on center oven rack. Watch closely, sugar can burn quickly. Brown to your liking.
  • Filling:.
  • Prepare the fruit by washing, removing stems, seeds, etc., and cutting into bite sized peices.
  • One "bowl" will require about 1 to 1 1/2 cups of fruit of your choice. I used all strawberries this time since they have just come in season.
  • Be creative, mix fruits, go tropical!, add some granola, drizzle with chocolate syrup, top with ice cream if you prefer it over whipped cream.

I come from a very large family which attributed to my mother spending a great deal of her time in the kitchen cooking, cleaning, and preparing. I was fascinated at how she prepared wonderful dishes (especially desserts) without using a cookbook. We grew many of our own fruits and vegetables and my summers were spent washing jars and preparing fruit and vegetables for canning. I dreaded the mountains of green beans, tomatoes, peaches, etc., etc. that had to be picked, washed, peeled, snapped.... More than anything, I hated spending my summer washing jars! But now, I wouldn't trade that kind of upbringing for anything. I'm glad I learned how to do all those things because it's becoming a lost art. It really was a simpler time then and I'm a much better person for knowing how to do all those 'old fashioned' things. In my early years of learning to cook, I watched Julia Child on PBS every chance I got. I was so thrilled when I was about 11, my mother let me prepare Julia's Pastry Tarts. If I remember correctly they didn't turn out so well but it didn't matter. Oddly, today, I enjoy reading cookbooks and recipes even more than actually cooking. <img src="">
