I am not a whiz in the kitchen, but I do love making pretty desserts. And I love it when I find a dessert that’s easy to make, yet looks special. So when I was at the grocery store the other day, I picked up a package of individual pastry cups and decided to make a pretty dessert for my family.
All you need to make this dessert are a few items: pastry cups, strawberries, sugar, cornstarch, salt and COOL WHIP Whipped Topping. Find out how to make this easy dessert, after the jump!
2 c. hulled, washed strawberries
3/4 c. water
3/4 c. sugar
3 tbsp. cornstarch
1/4 tsp. salt
Here’s what you do:
Bake the pastry shells according to the directions. While they are baking:
Take 1 cup of strawberries and crush them. I used my blender and it was a snap.
Put the strawberries in a saucepan, along with 3/4 cup of water. Mix and simmer for 3 minutes.
Combine sugar, cornstarch and salt. Slowly add reserved berry juice, stirring until smooth. Bring to boiling, stirring constantly. Cook until thick and clear. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
Arrange remaining berries in baked pastry shells. Spoon glaze over the berries, being careful to coat each one. Chill for about 1 hour.
Add COOL WHIP Whipped Topping to each shell and serve immediately.
My family loved them! What you add makes it. #coolwhipmoms
