Recipe: Strawberries with Whipped Marscarpone

This is such an easy recipe and oh does it taste so good!…

Ingredients:

  • 16-18 large strawberries
  • 1/3 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) heavy whipping cream
  • 2-3 (24-36 grams) tablespoons granulated white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions:
You want the strawberries to sit flat.  So if they are a little wobbly with the stems left on, cut the green stems off the strawberries so they will stand upright when placed on your serving tray.  With a small sharp knife, cut an “X” in each strawberry, cutting almost to the bottom of each strawberry.  (The cut should be such that the strawberry will open up but not fall apart.) Gently, with your fingertips, spread each strawberry apart to make “petals”.  Set aside while you make the cream filling.
In a medium sized bowl, whip the mascarpone cheese and whipping cream until soft peaks form.  Add the sugar and vanilla and continue to whip until stiff peaks form.
Spoon the cream into a pastry bag fitted with a large open star tip.  Pipe the cream into the strawberries.  If not serving immediately, cover, and place in the refrigerator until serving time.

Variation:

Add a drizzle of Hershey’s syrup on top of the whipping cream that is inside the strawberries!

Add hazelnut flavoring to the whipped cream!

Sprinkle cinnamon on top of the Whipped Cream!
