Red + White + Blue Stuffed Strawberries

by Megan on July 4, 2010

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

Ingredients:

  • 20-25 strawberries
  • 20-25 fresh blueberries
  • 8 oz. mascarpone cheese
  • 3 T confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 t vanilla (I used half a vanilla bean.)

Directions:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Check out this group of berries just hangin’ out being patriotic and stuff.

Megan! I’m thinking of making these for a wedding shower and was wondering if you cut a little bit of the tip off to get them to stand up like that. Or if you used witchcraft.

I sure did use witchcraft! Just kidding!

Yep! I cut a bit of the tip of the strawberries off and then they stood like champs.
