3. Arrange on two parchment-lined baking sheets and sprinkle with coarse sugar.

4. Bake at 400 degrees F until puffed and golden, about 12 minutes.

5. Place 1 cup of strawberries in a food processor and puree until smooth. Combine heavy whipping cream and confectioners' sugar in a large chilled bowl. Using an electric mixer, whip until soft peaks form. Add the strawberry puree and continue to whip until stiff peaks form.
