Ingredients

  • 12 Strawberries, halved
  • 1/2 cup Mascarpone cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 tsp. Ground cinnamon
  • 1/2-3/4 tsp. Honey (add more if you'd like it sweeter)
  • 2-3 Tb. Minced/toasted walnuts or almonds
  • 1 Pinch Kosher or flaky sea salt (optional)

Instructions

  • Add nuts to a small pan and toast over low heat approx. 5 minutes.  Transfer to a cutting board and mince finely.  Cool for a few minutes.
  • Rinse strawberries, pat dry and slice in half (keep the green tops on for garnish).
  • In a small bowl, add Mascarpone, cinnamon & honey; mix well with a spoon.  
  • Transfer cheese mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a tip large enough to dispense the cheese in a pretty fashion OR transfer mixture to a small ziplock bag and cut off one corner to squeeze out the mixture OR simply use a small spoon to top each berry with a bit of mixture.  
  • Sprinkle each dab of mascarpone with toasted nuts (and a bit of salt, if using) and serve immediately.  NOTE: you can also refrigerate them once they're topped with mascarpone, but for best results, be sure to bring them up to room temperature before serving.
