Ingredients

Make It

Step 1

Combine water and cornstarch in small bowl; set aside.

Step 2

Heat media crema and sweetened condensed milk in small saucepan over medium heat until heated through and well combined. Stir cornstarch mixture; add to saucepan. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes or until well thickened. Remove from heat. Cover; cool to room temperature.

Step 3

Cut bread in large heart shapes almost the size of the bread using a cookie cutter or knife. Cover to keep from drying out.

Step 4

Stir chopped strawberries into cooled mixture. Spread 8 bread hearts with strawberry filling (about 1/4 cup each). Top with remaining heart slices. Top each sandwich with a strawberry half.

Step 5

Serve at room temperature or chilled.
