These are little bites of heaven! I made them for a dinner party with the cheese I had left over from my Tiramisu. I didn't add cranberries or orange zest, but I did put shaved chocolate on top! Wonderful!!!
This was the dessert I chose for the Father's Day meal and I'm happy I did! Simple, quick, beautiful presentation and very delicious! I used Nancy's cultured cream cheese, orange juice and the dried cranberries. A melon scoop was helpful in placing the cream cheese mixture on the strawberries. No additional sugar was added. Variations would be unlimited: pear brandy for the oj, for example. I thought about adding a drop or two or vanilla or almond extract or garnishing with finely chopped hazelnuts but in the end I made as written garnishing with orange zest. Thank for posting. I'm looking forward to preparing this dessert again!
excellent recipe; however, i added some vanilla sugar and chopped hazelnuts to the mixture. i then refrigerated the strawberries and piped them with milk chocolate for a bit more flavor as well as presentation.
Oh my goodness another Zaar member/friend told me about this recipe just over 2 months ago. I knew I had to try it but it took me 2 months to find the Mascarpone cheese. I am soooo glad I didn't give up searching for it! This is absolutely out of this world! It tastes like something you would get at a fancy catered event yet it is so simple to make! I did a trial run last night and cut the recipe way back (I used orange juice and just a pinch of confectioners sugar). Then I got up early this morning so I could make it again to take to a prototype craft class and share. Trouble is I want to go 1 for you and 2 for me! Thanks for posting this delicious recipe
An excellent way to make a simple desert of fresh strawberries into something special. I found it needed a bit of sugar as well. I've found the flavour is a little nicer using orange liquor over juice. Make this the day before so the flavourof the cranberries have a chance to totally infuse the cheese.
WOW, that's the easiest way to describe this wonderful treat. But 24 servings? They were gone even before a third person could have been served. This dessert is so easy to make and the mascarpone mixture has a wonderful flavours. It is not too sweet. If you have small strawberries you could thin the mascarpone mixture with a little milk and you have a wonderful smooth cream, which you can dip the strawberries in. Thanks Kathy for another keeper and summerly fresh dessert.
Easy and delicious; a huge hit at book club!
Made these for a bridge foursome. I used the orange juice instead of the liqueur, and they needed something else so I added more orange juice and zest. I think adding a little sugar might help too, although my guests and I liked this as I served them.
Made these for some friends who came over for a movie last night. Great flavor, but needed some sugar. I tasted the first one I made and quickly corrected the recipe and added about 1/4 cup of light brown sugar to the cheese mix. Definitely something different and interesting!
