    Great topping, quick and easy to make.  -  21 Feb 2010


    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.  -  10 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
