Little Miss Strawberry

The fresh ripe berries will be in season soon.  I can't wait to enjoy some local sun ripened strawberries!  Here are some dessert options for these bright and sweet jewels.  I have always loved the cake, strawberry and whipped cream combo.  This year I will have to try the delicious looking clafouti and puff.   All recipes are from sunset magazine.

Strawberry Puff
Strawberries layered over orange-flavored filling in a cream puff crust.

Strawberry Soda
In a tall glass layer scoops of firm strawberry-sour cream ice cream with fresh strawberry, raspberry vinegar, sugar and club soda.
Strawberry Tallcake
Try this elegant, elongated version of strawberry shortcake by stacking cake layers with berries and whipped cream.
Rosy Strawberry Sorbet
This juicy sorbet isn't merely rose-colored. It also contains rosewater, which combines so beautifully with strawberries that its flavor seems like an extension of the fruit.
Strawberry Clafouti
As easy to make as a pancake, this classic French dessert from the Limousin region involves pouring a simple batter over fresh fruit and baking until puffed and golden brown.
Marscapone Tart with Strawberries
Plump berries, creamy and delicate mascarpone, and a crisp espresso-laced chocolate cookie crust make this a special dessert for sharing.
