  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Beat the mascarpone cheese, confectioners sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl until smooth. Fold in the whipped cream. Spoon cheese mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star tip.
  2. Leaving the stem end in tact, cut off the tip of each strawberry, and carefully remove the core using a small, thin knife. Stand strawberries upright (stem end down), and slice through the tip toward the stem. Do not cut completely through. Repeat, slicing a total of 4 times. Each strawberry will have 8 sections. Roll the strawberries in the sugar.
  3. Gently open each strawberry and fill each with the cheese mixture, using a circular motion. Arrange strawberry roses on a platter, and sprinkle with lemon zest.

These were heavenly! I don't know what the problem was for the previous user and the cheese, first I don't know how long you beat the cheese for but I did mine for about 2 minutes and it was nice and smooth, no chunks at all.. maybe your cheese was bad or you beated for too long or not enough? Secondly, I see marascapone in almost every grocery store I go in. I would think cream cheese would give it a whole different taste. Anyway, the only problem I had was for them making it to the serving platter. lol This recipe also made about 16 medium plump strawberries for us and was a huge hit! Will definitely make these again and again.


Its a really cool desert! Great job! :)

These things are out of this world!! Oh my gosh they're so good! None of us could stop eating them. Even the men were silent (other than moans) when they bit in to them. Yes... they're that good. I followed it to a T other than i couldn't find the mascarpone cheese so I used philidelphia cream cheese. Makes a TON of filling though... you can do way more than 16 berries. I also dipped the ends of some of the berries in chocolate, let it set, then put filling in. Awesome!!!!!
