This was one of those "orphan" recipes ... I "claimed" it, and have tweaked it just a bit with the extracts and garnish, to 'fancy' it up and make a nice presentation out of it, according to the way I have eaten fruit soups. I will post a photo as soon as strawberries are in season!

How to Make Strawberry Cream Soup


  • 1Slice strawberries and mix with sour cream.
  • 2Process briefly with food processor or blender.
  • 3Add vanilla & almond extracts, and confectioners' sugar; process until smooth.
  • 4Pour into bowl and add half and half, stirring until well blended. Chill thoroughly.
  • 5To make croutons while soup is chilling: Cut pound cake into small, thin cubes. Toast in the oven under the broiler until lightly brown. Watch them closely, so they don't burn! Cool completely.
  • 6Also while soup is chilling, dip milk wafers into melted semi-sweet chocolate, covering only 1/2 the wafer. You will have to use a spoon or a spreader to get the chocolate half-way up the wafer, since you are only melting a half-cup, and it won't be very deep in your double boiler. After applying, let them 'set' on waxed paper.
  • 7Using your 6 reserved small strawberries, make a strawberry "fan" for a garnish for each bowl: slice strawberry into several very thin slices, but don't cut all the way thru the leaves (a good egg slicer is great for this, just don't push the strawberry all the way thru the wires). Leave the leaves and the hull of the strawberry intact.
  • 8Distribute soup evenly between six small bowls. Sprinkle croutons on top of soup, and lay a strawberry fan on top of croutons. Serve chocolate-covered milk wafers on the side.
    This makes a lovely summer "light" dessert soup.

Pairing soups and wine can be tricky. Besides there being many types of soup (stews, chowder, broth-based, etc.), soups are liquid and pairing liquid with liquid is strange. In reality,...
