Bienetta Almond Taco Shells

1.) Preheat oven to 350°F.

2.) Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Spoon 16.6 grams of bienetta-almond mixture onto a silpat on a pan.

3.) Using the back of a spoon, spread mixture to 4" diameter round disks.

4.) Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 30 seconds. While bienetta mixture is still soft and pliable, quickly transfer each one to a taco shell rack using a wide metal offset spatula.

5.) Allow to cool completely. If not serving immediately, store shells in an airtight container until ready to fill and serve. *See recipe notes

Raspberry Fond Royal Mousse Filling

1.) Whip 300 grams of whipping cream to a medium peak and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix 75g of cold water and 65g of Raspberry Fond Royal Mousse Mix and whisk together. 

2.) Whisk 100g of medium peak whipped cream into the water-fond royal mixture.  Then, add the remaining 200g whipped cream and fold together until fully combined.

3.) Place Raspberry Mousse inside a piping bag with a star tip. Pipe the prepared mousse into the cooled taco shells, using a swirling motion or any pattern you wish.

4.) In a bowl, toss together the finely diced strawberries and chiffonade-cut mint leaves. Use as garnish for the raspberry mousse filled bienetta shells.

*You can make the taco shells ahead of time and store in an airtight container until ready to fill and serve. Chef Joan recommends waiting to pipe the shells with the mousse until just before serving.
