Wild Strawberry Desserts
We never met a strawberry we didn’t like. Especially at this time of year, when the beautiful summer berries are either in season or on their way, nothing seems to make as much sense for dessert as strawberry shortcake, strawberry pie (go on, make a pie with strawberry and rhubarb, too, for a classic June dessert), or just-plain strawberry with cream. Maybe with a little sugar. Hmm, perhaps not. Strawberries worth their weight at the farmstand should be as sweet as honey right now. (Oh, we’ve got a strawberry-rhubarb cobbler, too.)
Coming up with the right berry for the season was easy. Trying to devise a dessert shortcake list, as it were, was tougher. There are so many things to make with strawberries. But we like the mix you’ll find here. Yes, we did the just-plain berries and shortcake —of course — but we went way beyond to things you might not have thought of, like a strawberry chocolate cake, strawberry sandwiches, and sweet little strawberry baskets — ideal for a children’s party.
