Fruity Dessert Tortillas are as good as they look pretty! Fresh strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries are the centerpiece of this dessert made on better-for-you Organic Whole Wheat Tortillas. First warm the tortillas in butter and sugar for a crispy treat. Then spread a dollop of whipped cream all over. A sprinkle of cinnamon adds some flair. Get creative with the presentation of your fruit. Slice strawberries in half lengthwise, keeping the green leaves attached. Place the strawberries around the edges of the tortilla and the blackberries and blueberries inside the middle. So pretty! And so delicious!
