This is one of my favorite recipes because it requests very little time from me, yet wows my guests ;). A very simple summer recipe – but be sure to make one or two extra servings because there is always someone who will ask for more!
Fresh Strawberries from the market – 1 kg
Sugar – 2-3 tablespoons
Chantilly (either homemade if you have the tools, or readymade)
Your favorite kind of biscuit (speculos, galettes bretonnes, sugar cookie, or chocolate based cookies) – 1 or 2 per person
For the topping: almonds / grated dark chocolate / mint
First start by cutting the strawberries into little cubes.
Put them in a bowl and add 2 or 3 tablespoons of sugar (depending on the variety of strawberries and their taste).
Leave the strawberries in the fridge for at least 4 hours. The hard work is done!
The rest of the recipe is done on the spot.
Once it is time for dessert, bring out your most beautiful glasses (cocktail glasses or water glasses). The glasses have to be transparent so that your guests are wowed by the layers and the colors.
Put a long spoon in each glass.
Start by crushing the biscuits and fill the bottom of the glass with the crumbles.
Then add one layer of strawberries, one layer of Chantilly, and repeat until the glass is full.
On top, you can add some almonds and a little mint for decoration, or grate some chocolate.
Yummy!It is now time to enjoy it with your guests.Note:
This recipe can also be made with mascarpone or fromage blanc, with other fruits depending on the season – the variations are endless, so have fun!
