Strawberry Burnt Cream

The strawberries are blanketed with whipped cream, sprinkled with dark brown sugar and broiled. Under the fierce heat, the sugar melts to[ become a crunchy lattice, the cream foams and browns lightly, and the strawberries heat enough just to become warm. Other fruits such as blueberries, sliced peaches and pears also do well in this delicious original dessert.]

Ingredients
  • 2 cups chilled heavy cream
  • 1 quart strawberries
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
Directions

Preheat broiler. Chill mixer beaters and bowl in freezer, allowing 5 to 10 minutes for this before you start. Start whipping cream at medium speed. Meanwhile, hull the strawberries, washing if only sandy. Spread in a baking dish, halving any that are large. When cream holds stiff peaks, spread over strawberries. With your fingers, crumble brown sugar over cream, spreading as evenly as possible. Broil very close to heat until sugar has melted and cream starts to brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Serve at once.
