Strawberry Baskets with Cheesecake & Huckleberry Honey Drizzle
*Huckleberry Syrup (optional or any kind of berry preserves can be used)
*Real Silver Powder (optional, but great for effect)
*Small Cheesecake (Disclaimer: I make my own homemade sour cream cheesecake, but thought to make this recipe more convenient. If you would like my recipe, please request it. Also you may substitute out cheesecake for herbed or regular goat cheese, cream cheese or any soft cheese).
I prefer shopping organically, so that is my recommendation for the ingredients above...but it's totally up to you.
Wash strawberries and let dry. Cut thin slice off bottom of strawberry so it can sit flat, then cut thin slice off top to remove stem. Finally cut center of strawberry out to create basket.
If you purchase a cheesecake, remove crust. Put a couple scoops of cheesecake filling into a plastic baggie, squeeze all the filling to one corner, twist the top of the baggie until all the air is out and there is pressure on that corner, cut the tip of the corner to create piping bag and fill the strawberries, creating peaks of cheesecake. If you need additional assistance on this step or any other step, please watch this quick & fun video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFK9LEk8-w4
Mix 2 tbsp of huckleberry syrup to every 1 tbsp of honey or to taste. Then drizzle sparingly over the top of the strawberries.
Mix 1/4 tsp. of real silver powder into 1 cup of confectioner's sugar. Put into sifter and sprinkle sparingly over strawberries.
A small cheesecake will fill several quarts of strawberries, so it will make at least two nice size platters of hors d'oeuvres. Serve cold on a beautiful tray for an elegant dessert that pairs perfectly with champagne and whites, especially SUNBOX eleven Winery "the maverick" 2007 Marsanne Roussanne and "the nice" 2007 Viognier. Enjoy!
