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 ShutterbeanIngredients 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.
