This is a special recipe I came up with for my husband & son who both love strawberry desserts but not overly sweetened. Plus my nephew who loves to be my helper enjoys testing everything I come up with and someday says he wants to be as good as I am at baking. Such a sweety. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we do.
