It’s all things strawberry this month, but if you don’t have access to fresh strawberries, don’t fret. Delectable strawberry treats can still be had with these cookies that utilize freeze dried strawberries and strawberry jam.
All month long we’re celebrating strawberries, and what goes better with that juicy red berry than chocolate. These rolls get a double dose of chocolate from both cocoa powder and dark chocolate chunks. Filled with fresh strawberries and topped with a simple glaze of strawberry jam, it’s the perfect match.
Strawberry Rosé Granita was a bonus recipe from awhile back. But it is so refreshing and the perfect make ahead summer dessert that we decided to bring it back as a permanent recipe. We also added in a blueberry version with limoncello and white wine. Hello summertime!
Granita is an easy frozen treat that doesn’t require an ice cream maker. Just a pan, fork and a little periodic scraping. If you don’t have the juicer/strainer attachment, you could also puree the berries in the blender attachment and then strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove seeds. But if you love berries as much as my family does, it is a great attachment! Also excellent for turning bumper crops of tomatoes into sauce during the summer, and apples into applesauce when autumn comes around.
