During strawberry season in Louisiana, trucks selling the sweet berries line the roads. Here, the fresh produce is combined with our Creole cream cheese to create the most famous and most loved strawberry dish.
Ingredients for Strawberries:
1 quart strawberries, sliced lengthwise
½ cup sugar, or to taste
1 ounce strawberry wine
Preheat oven to 425°F. In a medium mixing bowl, combine strawberries, sugar and wine. Mash with a potato masher or fork just until strawberries release their juices. Be careful not to mash to a pulp.
Ingredients for Whipped Cream:
1 (11.5-ounce) package Bittersweet Plantation Dairy Creole Cream Cheese
2 cups heavy whipping cream
½ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp cinnamon
¾ cup sugar
In an electric mixer, combine Creole cream cheese, cream, nutmeg and cinnamon. Whisk on medium-high speed until mixture starts to slightly thicken. Slowly add sugar and beat until very soft peaks form. Be careful to avoid creating a stiff whipped cream. Set aside.
Ingredients for Cream Biscuits:
2 cups flour
1 tbsp double-acting baking powder
3 tbsps sugar, or to taste
½ tsp salt
1½ cups heavy whipping cream
whole milk (for brushing tops of biscuits)
