Since berry season is getting close, and since I ended up with so many berries, I am posting a couple of recipes that I enjoy making with strawberries!
(from GBP's newest cookbook 101 Easy Everyday Recipes)
16.5 oz. tube refrigerated sugar cookie dough
8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
8 oz. container frozen whipped topping, thawed and divided
1 qt. strawberries, hulled and sliced
13.5 oz. container strawberry glaze
Slice cookie dough and press into the bottom of an ungreased 13x9 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 13-16 minutes, or until lightly golden. Cool completely on a wire rack. Mix cream cheese and one cup of whipped topping. Spread over cookie crust. Stir strawberries and glaze together and spread over top. Cover and chill. Cut into squares and serve with remaining whipped topping. Serves 10-12.
(For any Aunt Bee fans, this recipe is from Aunt Bee's Delightful Desserts cookbook, from
the tv show "The Andy Griffith Show".)
3 cups flour
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
2 cups sugar
4 eggs beaten
2 (10 oz. ea. pkg.) frozen, sliced strawberries, thawed
3/4 c. chopped pecans (optional)
1 1/4 cup. vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a bowl; mix well. Pour into 2 greased 9x5 inch loaf pans. Bake for 1 hour. Remove to wire rack. Cut into thin slices.
*Really, really good with cream cheese frosting. Yum!
