Ingredients

  • 6, Low Carb Tortillas or favorite tortilla of choice
  • 4 oz. Mascarpone or Cream Cheese
  • 6-10 Strawberries may vary based on size
  • 1/4 cup Low Carb Powdered Sweetener or regular powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. Vanilla
  • 2 tbsp. Butter

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the mascarpone or cream cheese, powdered sweetener, and the vanilla. Mix until smooth.
  • Slice the strawberries (tops removed) into 1/4" slices and set aside.
  • Cover the top of one whole tortilla in the mascarpone mixture, it should be a thin layer with a tiny bit of the edge remaining.
  • Place about 6 slices of strawberry on one half of the tortilla. Fold the other side over top and press down. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
  • Preheat a pan or griddle to medium heat. You want the butter to sizzle and not burn. Place the tortillas down on one side and cook 2 minutes or so and flip. Repeat until all the tortillas are toasted.
  • Let the tortillas cool for 10-15 minutes before cutting and serving or the filling may run a bit too much. Dust with powdered sweetener and serve.

Notes

For the chocolate dipping sauce- heat 1/2 cup heavy cream in a microwaveable dish for 1 minute. Add 1/2 cup of (low carb) chocolate chips and let them sit for 5 minutes. Then whisk vigorously until melted and mixed well. Serve as a dipping sauce (pictured).
