Some gourmet magazine years ago had a feature where readers would write in saying they ate this at that place and loved it and wanted the recipe. As I recall, a fancy restaurant in New York City served this as a dessert. Happily shared it with all the readers of that magazine. So glad they did! Strawberry shortcake use to be my must make when strawberries in season. Now this is the one I fancy.

1 pt
strawberries, cleaned & stemmed
2 c
sour cream or 1 pint
light brown sugar, you will know what you want


1For presentation later if you are so inclined, use a clear glass bowl.
2Chop the Strawberries and add to the bowl. Pour the Sour Cream over the strawberries. Spread out gently. Then sprinkle generously is what I do, the Light Brown Sugar. A nice topping of the sugar.
3Refrigerate at least 4 hours so brown sugar melts through the sour cream. The clear bowl is suppose to add to the effect of seeing the melted sugar in the white sour cream, complimenting the red strawberries. Optional to have the visual enhancement.
4NOTE: if left too long in refrigerator, like eat and put away the leftovers, it will look UGLY next time you go to eat it but it will still be delicious. I have seen recipes that uses grapes in lieu of the strawberries. I have seen sour cream & brown sugar mixed well together and used to dip apples, grapes, whatever in it. I have seen me mix just sour cream and brown sugar and just eat it.
