Layers of creamy filling and fresh strawberries team with mint butter cookies for a decadent spring dessert.
Combine powdered sugar, butter and vanilla in bowl; beat at medium speed until mixed. Add egg; continue beating until creamy. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed. Stir in 1 tablespoon chopped mint.
Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a ball; flatten slightly. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; refrigerate at least 1 hour or until firm.
Heat oven to 350°F. Roll out dough, one-half at a time, on lightly floured surface, (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut out 16 cookies with floured 3-inch scalloped or round cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to cooling rack; cool completely.
Pour whipping cream into bowl; beat at high speed until soft peaks form. Combine pudding mix and milk in bowl; beat with whisk until smooth. Slowly add pudding to whipped cream; beat at medium speed until thick and creamy. Gently stir in 1 tablespoon chopped mint.
Place 8 cookies, bottom-side up, onto individual serving plates. Spread each with scant 1/4 cup filling. Top each with 2 tablespoons strawberries and remaining cookies, bottom-side down. Garnish with mint leaves, if desired.
