The season of strawberries is upon us. Juicy plump strawberries, stacked close to one another, neatly arranged in a box were reaching out to me. I thought I'd do them a favour and use them for dessert and maybe breakfast for the weekend. Strawberries' best friend? fresh cream of course. Had to get some. And don't they look like a match made in heaven?!
6 strawberries finely chopped
2 tb sp powdered sugar
2 tb sp dark rum
1/2 cup fresh cream
1 tb sp powdered sugar for the cream
Mix the cut up berries and add the sugar and rum, keep aside. Whip the fresh cream with 1 tb sp powdered sugar till its light and fluffy.
Now in your favourite dessert serving dish, we used shot glasses, scoop a spoonful of the strawberry mix and place it on the bottom of the glass. Next, a spoonful of the fluffy cream goes on top of the berries. Again the strawberries, then the cream,
layer your dish/glass with the strawberries and cream till full. Voila! you have a stunning dessert ready to be served.
I don't think we wasted anytime and polished the whole thing clean off the glass. YUM!
