Recipe: Roasted Strawberries with Honey Mascarpone

This is decadent.  Slighty sweet, a touch tart and the  mascarpone melts in your mouth.

We had it last night for dessert, and I will definitely be making it again soon!  And when you run out of fruit, you could just eat the honey mascarpone all by itself.  That’s what I do!

Roasted Strawberries with Honey Mascarpone

Recipe adapted from Shutterbean

Ingredients
16 oz. medium strawberries, hulled & cut in half
3 tablespoons balsamic syrup
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pinch fine grain sea salt
8 oz. mascarpone
2-3 tbsp honey

 

Preparation
Preheat oven to 350 F. Take the cut strawberries and put them in a medium mixing bowl. Drizzle the balsamic syrup and olive oil over the strawberries then sprinkle on the salt and toss to coat.  Spread the strawberries on a baking sheet and roast for 15-20 minutes.

 

While strawberries are roasting, whip together the mascarpone and honey.

Once strawberries are done, let them sit to cool for 5-10 minutes.  Then layer mascarpone and strawberries for serving.

Notes
I like my mascarpone with just a hint of sweetness from the honey, since mascarpone by nature is a slightly sweet cheese.  But, if you like it really sweet, add more honey to taste.
 

Also, I like to make large batches of strawberries and store the extras in the refrigerator (for up to one week) for a quick snack or dessert.

This would also make a decadent twist on strawberry shortcake.  Make your favorite shortcake recipe and substitute mascarpone for the whipped cream.
