Strawberries and Cream Recipe

Sometimes desserts are made up of two ingredients that work together perfectly. This is the case with strawberries, cream and other sweets. A thick layer of whipped cream perfectly complements any ripe, sweet, and moist strawberry. Add a few more ingredients, and you’ll have a stunning dessert that looks amazing, tastes great, and is easy to make.

The butter should be melted in a small bowl in the microwave or on a low-heat stovetop.

Note – If you choose to microwave butter, heat it in 10-second increments. This will ensure that the butter doesn’t splatter when heated in the microwave. Stir the butter in the bowl after 10 seconds. You may be able to melt butter in some microwaves, so you can make it easier. Let it rest for 5-10 min. Take a slice of the square and warm it up. The pastry’s soft texture will make your eyes water. It pairs perfectly with the cheese, egg and sour cream filling.
