These stuffed strawberries are a favorite of my family. My eldest Grandson enjoys cooking almost as much as my children and I do. He flies in every summer and spends a few months visiting and this is something that is as easy for him to do as it is good. At 15, he really enjoys being able to create a delightful handheld fresh treat for family and guests.
