Lately I have been buying the largest packages of strawberries that you can buy. These organic fresh berries are now in season and I can’t quite get enough so I’ve been looking for ways to use these strawberries in unique ways. I’ve seen mascarpone used many times on my favorite Food Network shows but have never attempted to use it myself. After hearing it’s a slightly sweeter cheese I thought what better way than to create something with with fresh berries.
Strawberry MascarponeÂ Filling Recipe
- 8 ozs Mascarpone Cheese
- 3 tablespoons confectioners sugar
- 1 1/2 cups fresh diced strawberries
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 tablespoons flour
- Optional: 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
I have made my own crepes in the past and they didn’t quite turn out. I think my pan was too small and I had to high of heat, either way I’m not the best french crepe maker or pancakes for that matter. I decided to use the crepes that I found near the berries at my local grocery store. They’re premade so all I did was warm them up in a pan over my stove.
This is a fresh summer desert and you could easily top with homemade whipping cream, or additional fresh berries. Super simple and yet so sweet and tasty!
