Strawberries and Cream Recipe

This strawberries and cream recipe is not only scrumptiously delicious, but also easy to make. It goes just as well at a picnic as it does to end a gourmet meal. If you are looking for a dessert to share with someone special, this is it!

This is one of my favorite recipes only because I can't think of anything better to eat for dessert than strawberries and whipped cream. Put these two tasty treats together with a little cream cheese and you have the creation of a fabulous dessert.

      I love strawberries, they taste so sweet and fresh and negate my craving for sweets! They are so typically English and bring out the memories of my childhood. I love pick your own, then I eat more than my fair share :)

      No wonder strawberries are so romantic and delicious given their relationship to the rose.
