Sauteed Strawberries With a Twist

"This is a little unusual - fresh strawberries cooked briefly with cinnamon and lime. From my local newspaper. It is excellent on vanilla ice cream, or try in strawberry shortcake, or layer with pound cake and vanilla pudding for trifle desserts."

  1. Turned these into strawberry shortcake. I thinks these would be good served warm or cold. We served them warm this time, sprinkled with a little bit of powdered sugar. I will make this recipe again, as 3/4 of the family really loved it, and 1/4 ate it with minimal complaints. Thanks for sharing!
  2. Made this as a topping for frozen vanilla yogurt, & now I really have to make another batch (or two or three!) to keep on hand for just about anything ~ Had it over some cottage cheese, too, & that was very enjoyable! Thanks for sharing a great recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe tag]
  3. Was planning to make strawberries with balsamic vinegar a favorite dessert when I stumbled on this one in the Game Room. Quick easy, refreshing and light, this was a brilliant dessert. I made mine with light butter and brown sugar Splenda as that was all I had but it worked out just fine. Served with dabs of low-fat ricotta it was a guiltless treat. Thanks! Made for the I Recommend Tag Game.
  4. Made these for breakfast today to put on top of Recipe#315691 by Mommyoffour. The lime and cinnamon are a really good combination. And soo easy too!
  5. This was great! I had planned on lime juice with the strawberries, but couldn't think what else to add. This recipe came to the rescue plus made for an awesome dessert. We put it over vanilla yogurt for a lower calorie dessert. Thanks for the easy and tasty recipe!


  1. Wow! What a fantastic and flavorful twist to strawberries. We substituted the lime juice for fresh lemon juice. We poured the sauce over Recipe #265872. So simple to make, the brown sugar and cinnamon adds outstanding flavor to this sauce! Great recipe with tons of uses! Thanks for posting. :)
