I’m hoping everyone isn’t completely sick of red white and blue recipes for July 4th. Here is my contribution for the holiday weekend. These are easy to make and would be perfect for a bbq.
With strawberries on sale this weekend, it makes a cheap dessert. Look how pretty the strawberries look! I actually got these at the Carlsbad stand.
|Mascarpone Stuffed Strawberries||
- 12 strawberries
- 1 cup mascarpone cheese
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 12 blueberries
- Slice off top end of strawberry so that the strawberry can stand on a flat surface. Then make a deep knife cut on top of strawberry. You want to make two cuts for each strawberry in the shape of an “X” or a cross. You want to cut about 3/4 of the way down, but not all the way. Use your finger to help separate the petal of the strawberries so that they open up enough for stuffing.
- In a stand mixer, mix the mascarpone cheese, heavy cream and sugar until it is fully mixed and forms a whipped cream frosting look (it will probably curdle first before coming together).
- Put mixture into a piping bag and pipe the strawberries.
- Top with blueberries
