Emma's Fresh Strawberries and Marscapone

By • April 29, 2011 • 12 Comments



Author Notes: An old family friend of Italian heritage who lived in Montana used to make this for us. Her name was Emma and she just mixed this to suit her taste. I watched her for years and then made this for my family. SKK

Serves 6

  • 2 pounds fresh strawberries
  • 8 ounces container marscapone cheese
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 cup milk, or as needed to thin
  • 4 tablespoons fresh basil if desired
  1. Clean strawberries and cut in half.
  2. Mix marscapone, half and half, brown sugar, vanilla in bowl.
  3. Refrigerate strawberries and marscapone until ready to serve. Spoon cream mixture over strawberries and serve. If you desire, sprinkle fresh chopped basil over the top.

Why may i ask do you use store bought marscapone, is it something one could make on their own?
I'm not knowledgeable on that product.

This is SO delicious! Just got done eating a big bowl of strawberries with this cream mixture drizzled quite liberally on top. I'm a whipped cream fan, but I'll take this over whipped cream any day for fresh berries. Can't wait to try it with strawberry shortcake as well. Thanks for the great recipe!

Thank you, Emily! And Emma deserves the credit! I agree, this is much better than whipped cream for berries.

How nice and simple. I like sprinkling a tiny bit of freshly ground black pepper over my strawberries. Counter-intuitive, but it somehow makes them taste even more strawberry-like. Or, alternatively, as you do, brown sugar. Will try this.

Strawberries and mascarpone are such a perfect marriage! I will definitely try this recipe soon with strawberries in all stores.
