Our favorite Strawberry recipe!

Diana, I am sorry I forgot to post this last week! Here it is…
Florida Strawberry Panini
This recipe is from the Florida magazine….by Florida chef Justin Timineri

1 pint
Florida strawberries, 3/4 of them sliced thin
8 slices
sour dough bread (1/2 inch thick)
1/2 cup
mascarpone cheese (soft Italian cheese)
2 tablespoons
unsalted butter, softened
1 jar
Florida strawberry jam

Powdered sugar in a shaker for dusting
Heat a Panini press or stove top griddle over medium heat. Spread the mascarpone on 4 of the sour dough bread slices. Spoon 3 heaping tablespoons of the jam on each of the other 4 slices. Arrange the fresh sliced strawberries in a single layer on top of the jam and close the sandwiches. Brush the sandwiches with the butter and grill or press until golden brown and bubbly, around 5 minutes. Transfer the panini to a cutting board and dust with powdered sugar. Carefully cut each sandwich in half and serve with whole strawberries for garnish.
4 servings
We have made this the last 2 years. This year I forgot to get the jam…and they were good without it!
We also couldn’t get mascarpone, so I used cream cheese and heavy whipping cream and mixed them together in mixer until the consisitency of soft whipped cream cheese. I looked online and several people suggested this as a subsitute for the real thing!
Have fun….we love these!
