With all of the local fields filled with delicious juicy strawberries, we all look for recipes to make with them. Strawberry shortcake, Strawberry parfait’s, Strawberry shakes, Strawberry pie, and Strawberry bread are just some of the many choices that we have. My two recipes for strawberries that I would love to share with you our readers are my Strawberry Crisp and Strawberry Trifle. My Strawberry Crisp is actually my Blueberry Crisp recipe that I changed to strawberry. It can also be used with apples or peaches. Serving the Crisp with whip cream or ice cream is just so delicious. It is also wonderful warm right out of the oven. Trifles are easy, and pretty to display. They supply ample servings for a group, and can be made in advance to save time. Enjoy this years Strawberry Season for you and your family! They are juicy, red and delicious🍓
