I was browsing just now and came upon a recipe for a strawberry and cream cheese sandwiches, and it sent me down Memory Lane to when I was a kid. We used to make "samwishes" out of things that would make your stomach curl! lol! We made sugar and butter sands, cabbage and ketchup sands, and this one, my favorite, I will share with you. Since this is a thing that we kids made up, you'll just half to adjust the given ingredients. You may want to toast the bread, or even use another kind. I have even used English muffins, toasted. Thanks for looking into my past and I hope you'll enjoy this as much as I did as a small child. Time doesn't include chill time, if you choose to chill it. Note: you can use low-fat or fat-free sour cream if desired (and may use more of less)as well as a brown sugar substitute, if desired. Note* If strawberries are out of season, you can use strawberry jam or preserves, your own or store bought. They're really delicious this way too!
- 6 -8 large strawberries, sliced, lightly mashed
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar, make sure that the brown sugar is well dissolved (you may use brown sugar substitute)
- 4 slices white bread
- 1⁄4 cup sour cream
- Slightly mash the strawberies, breaking the skins. Note: you'll want to mash the strawberries so that they're the same size, so they will fit on the bread better).
- Add the brown sugar(more or less to your taste).
- At this point,you can chill the mixture in the fridge if you want it cold.
- Spread the sour cream on the white bread.
- Spread the strawberry/brown sugar mixture onto the bread slices.
One problem: 450 degrees for 15 minutes was too hot or too long--the bottoms of the biscuits were scorched. But the non-burnt part was delicious-- fluffy and slightly sweet. I would probably reduce to 425 next time.
Was very good. Thank-you.
My grandbabe was almost able to make this on his own. Oh, almost forgot...I have a couple of nuts in my family tree, too. :-P
