One in every of my favourite summertime desserts is Strawberries and Cream. It’s so easy and there’s NO baking, which makes it excellent for the most well liked months of the 12 months when strawberries are at their juiciest.
I’m, in fact, a whipped cream snob. (Aspect bar: I’ve by no means really finished a publish about whipped cream however all types of flavors of whipped cream seem in quite a few recipes right here on The Rose Desk.) Once I was in highschool, we have been out of granulated sugar so I made whipped cream utilizing powdered sugar. Not solely was it,I believed, extra scrumptious, however it didn’t fall for days.
For those who’ve ever made whipped cream earlier than and even gotten a dessert to go, I’m positive you’ve observed that whipped cream is notoriously for falling inside hours. Not The Rose Desk’s whipped cream. You possibly can rely on my whipped cream to carry its form for days, even when piped onto desserts.
Whipped cream whipped into pillowy clouds plus macerated strawberries is all you want for this refreshing summer time dessert. Generally I add some mint sprigs for garnish. A little bit of orange zest is beautiful too. Generally I’ll even add some mini chocolate chips!
Not: this recipe simply doubles/quadruples to feed a crowd.
