Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 sheet pans with butter and set aside.

Combine butter, shortening, corn syrup and brown sugar in saute pan and bring to boil, dissolving the sugar. Remove from heat and add flour and nuts, mixing thoroughly.
Drop spoonfuls of the cookie dough onto sheet pans and bake for 8-10 minutes. While still warm, place cookie dough over a wooden down or simply fold over gently to form a taco shape.

Let cookie taco shells cool completely, then fill each with a scoop of vanilla pudding and top with fruit mixture with fresh mint leaves. Save a sprig of mint to garnish.
