As I move my content from my first blog to this coaching site, I am revisiting very old posts including this one right here! It is a family and crowd favorite! This recipe is from the archives -- 2013!
This recipe was inspired by a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) subscription that my family enjoyed for several years. The small farm is no longer in business. I made some modifications to the recipe.
I encourage my readers to consider purchasing locally or organically grown as often as possible. I know that depending on one's location, budget, and availability, it can be nearly impossible to buy local or organic. So, buy what you can and choose your staples like the flour and sugar that are found in this recipe to be of the best quality.
If you have strawberries on hand, try this recipe. Only a few ingredients are necessary!
1 cup real butter, softened
1 cup unbleached flour
1/4 cup powdered sugar
Round or square pan
Mix ingredients. Spread into a thin and even layer in the pan of your choice.
Bake at 325° for 16-18 minutes until light brown around the edges. The center will be a lighter color than the edges.
Let it cool in the pan for 15 minutes until you're able to transfer it to a wire rack to finish cooling. About 30 minutes.
While the crust is baking, make the strawberry sauce and cream cheese frosting.
8-10 large strawberries, mashed
1/4 cup of organic sugar
Heat the strawberries and sugar on medium heat until reduced. Let cool.
If you have an immersion blender, you can blend 1-2 minutes until smooth. (Please let it cool before using the immersion blender to avoid being splashed and burned.)
Store in the refrigerator until ready to use. Now make the frosting.
Cream Cheese Frosting:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup powered sugar
6 drops of natural pink dye (optional; omitted)
Keep frosting refrigerated until ready to use.
Whipped topping (coconut, almond, etc.)
What can you add?
When the crust is cool, spread a thick layer of the cream cheese frosting on top. Then top the cream cheese layer with the strawberry sauce. Optional: Top with sliced strawberries.
Final touches: Add a pinch of shredded coconut and other toppings you can think of -- be creative! I enjoyed my slice with coconut whip. YUM!
Store covered or in an air tight container in the refrigerator. Enjoy within 3 days.
But, wait, the real question is--which pizza shape do you like the best -- round or square or BOTH? You can definitely have both. Just double your recipe! I did!
Choose, eat, and live well! =)
