 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2 1/2  cups          quartered strawberries
      1/4  cup           sugar
    1      tablespoon    brandy
    1 1/2  tablespoons   cornstarch
    4      3 inch        sweet pastry shells, -- fully baked
   16                    strawberry slices
      1/2  cup           softly-whipped cream
    4                    mint sprigs
 
 In a small saucepan combine strawberries and sugar, and cook at a hard boil for 6
minutes. Mix
 brandy and cornstarch to a smooth paste. Add to strawberry mixture, stirring
constantly; it will
 thicken instantly. Cook for 2 more minutes. Pour into tart shells. Cool in
refrigerator for 1 hour.
 Garnish with a few strawberry slices, a dollop of whipped cream and mint sprigs.
