So you guys should probably know that I single-handedly ate an entire watermelon in 2 days. I miss it already. With that said, I just can’t get enough summer fruit in my life, in my belly or in my desserts. So, I figured I’d tell you Happy Fourth of July with some patriotic berries!
Don’t bother considering these a dessert. Consider them a fruit-filled snack and eat a lot of them, ok?
Red + White + Blue Stuffed Strawberries
Recipe from The Family Kitchen
- 20-25 strawberries
- 20-25 fresh blueberries
- 8 oz. mascarpone cheese
- 3 T confectioners’ sugar
- 1 t vanilla (I used half a vanilla bean.)
- Wash and dry strawberries and blueberries. Set blueberries aside. Using a small paring knife cut a cone shape into the top of the strawberry removing the stem and leaving a little nook inside. Cut the tip of the berry off so that it can stand up on a plate or tray.
- Using an electric mixer beat together the mascarpone, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Using a pastry bag or using a small plastic bag with the tip cut off, pipe the mixture into each berry and top with a fresh blueberry. Store in the fridge until time to serve.
