Simple Strawberry Topping


This simple sauce would be a nice topping for shortcake or you could try it on your Easter Paska.

Simple Strawberry Topping

1/3 cup white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 pint strawberries stemmed and halved

Combine sugar, vanilla and 2/3 of the strawberries in a saucepan. Over medium high heat cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens, approx. 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
Smooth out sauce with a whisk, immersion blender, or standing blender. Stir remaining 1/3 strawberries into sauce.

Serve as a topping over ice cream, angel food cake, shortcake, waffles, or pancakes. Refrigerate any leftovers.
