This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Silk. The opinions and text are all mine.Mother’s Day is right around the corner and it’s time to bake up something sweet for mom. There’s nothing quite like a special Mother’s Day brunch so this year plan a special meal for mom and show her the same love and appreciation she’s shown you for all these years. In our life there are many influential women so we take the day to celebrate them. Brunch is one of those meals everyone seem to enjoys and it’s a great way to gather in one place.
For all of those wonderful Mother’s Day brunches I wanted to create a recipe that I know mom is going to enjoy. Sweetened with berries ripened by the sunshine this simple pastry will be a wonderful delight on any brunch buffet table.
Strawberry Coconut Cream Pastries
- 1/2 cup Silk Almond Coconut Blend
- 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup mascarpone cheese
- 1/4 cup cream cheese
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 3 cups strawberries (chopped)
- pastry dough
- 1/4 cup shredded coconut
I enjoy cooking with my daughters, it gives us time to spend together and is a great way to engage them in learning moments. Cutting up strawberries are fun and easy for the kiddos to do so allow them to get in the kitchen and help you out. There’s nothing like spending Mother’s Day with the ones you love most!
It’s also fun to eat the berries as you go, as you can tell Brooklin enjoyed hers!
Once we had the strawberries chopped we added sugar and coconut. Add mixture to the center of your pastry dough and wrap.
I cooked these at 390 degrees for 20 minutes and put them on a non-stick liner. You want that light and flaky even bake so these baking mats are a lifesaver.
While your pastries cool you want you start your coconut cream for the top. Mixing together the heavy cream and Silk Almond Coconut Blend then add in your mascarpone cheese, cream cheese.
Top with your coconut cream and toasted coconut. Make an easy to use station for brunch and allow mom to top her own pastries.
