Directions

  1. Wash strawberries and remove stems; cut large berries in half or roughly chop them.
  2. Combine strawberries, sugar, and vanilla in a saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. The mixture will sizzle for a while, but then juice will begin to form. Continue stirring; mash a few strawberries with a wooden spoon or heat-proof spatula to help produce the syrup. Cook until sauce thickens, about 15 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat. In a blender, puree about 1/3 of the sauce, then mix back into remaining topping. Store in refrigerator.

Easy and good recipe. Recipe isn't clear so here's the clarification: Chop all of the strawberries. Set 1/3 aside and cook the other 2/3. After cooking, combine all strawberries back together for your topping. Some like to puree the cooked topping before adding the fresh strawberries back into it. I just use a whisker to smash them up while they're cooking - That way I don't dirty my whole blender :) I use this to top white cake and angel food cake instead of the nasty store-bought glaze.

The directions seemed a bit confusing to me, but I needed a place to start. Here is what I did to come up with a topping for the New York Cheesecake III on this site: * I didn't have fresh strawberries on hand, so I used a 16oz. bag of frozen strawberries. I started by cutting them all up into smaller chunks. * I added 3/4 of the strawberries into the saucepan along with the sugar. I started to cook this on medium and let it go, stirring from time to time, for about 25 minutes. * Next, I used an immersion blender to smooth the mixture out. * Finally, I added the remaining stawberries and let them cook for about 3 minutes. Added the vanilla at the very end. This was the hit of the toppings I supplied with the cheesecake. The amount of sugar worked very well for 16oz of strawberries - not too tart, not too sweet.

I made this recipe this morning early for Saturday morning pancakes. My son likes the strawberry pancakes that Shari makes, but I can't justify paying $5 for something I can make better at home. This doubles really well and is simple enough for the kids to help make. Plus, it tastes better than the Shari's topping. IMO. I'll for sure make this again. UPDATED REVIEW: I have made this strawberry topping over and over again. I usually always double it, I use organic strawberries and pure vanilla extract. Besides using as a pancake topping, I like making this as a cheesecake topping. Specifically, Cheesecakemama's Perfect Cheesecake Everytime. Whenever I pair those two recipes together, people always ask for seconds and the recipes.
