What’s for Dessert – Strawberries

I love when strawberries are in season!  I’ve got 2 very easy, very tasty recipes to share.  Strawberry Mallow Dessert was found by my husband and it was quite a hit.

Strawberry Mallow Dessert (makes 2 servings)


  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • handful of chocolate chips


  1. Place strawberries in a bowl and sprinkle with sugar; stir and let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Add marshmallows, sour cream and chocolate chips; stir to coat.
  3. Spoon into dessert dishes.  Serve immediately or chill for 1 hour (it’s  better if you chill it).

This recipe for strawberry pie comes from my good friend Joleen.  I love that I don’t have to bake the pie, just the shell (or tarts, in this case).  The filling makes enough for a pie so it should make 2 dozen tarts no problem.  Ashlyn loved helping me by putting the strawberries into the tart shells; I think her system was “2 for the tarts, 1 for me”!

Strawberry Tarts


  • tart shells
  • strawberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 4 TBSP strawberry gelatin
  • 3 TBSP corn starch


  1. Bake tart shells according to directions on the box (or your recipe if you’re more adventurous) and let cool.
  2. Cut strawberries into quarters and place into tart shells.
  3. Cook together the rest of the ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat until thickened.
  4. Pour liquid over the strawberries and let it set for about an hour.
