My winning berries

I just realized I had not posted how I did these. I guess it has been mentioned and I did not want to drag it out but had a few ask so...
I do not have hardly any pics to share but it was just large strawberries that I cut the top off, down about 1/2 an inch, trim off the green and set aside for garnish. I used a strawberry huller to scoop out the meat in the center of the berry and try to leave enough of the wall to be firm. I mixed cream cheese with a little powdered sugar, and a few drops of vanilla. stir till well mixed. I put one blueberry in the bottom of the strawberry, then a dot of cream cheese mix then a raspberry and then more cream cheese mix. put the top back on. you do not want any filling coming out it should seal up. then roll in conf sugar just to coat lightly. I used the large Pillsbury crescent rolls, the bang cans. take them apart and lay the end of the strawberry in the center with the point down. roll the pastry around it and pinch off the bottom and top to seal. pat the side seam to seal there too. I baked indirect at about 400. a piece of parchment paper is good so they do not stick. bake till golden brown. dust with powdered sugar and set the top back on the end of the new berry :)
we had to use firewires and I just threaded it from top to tip and they did make it easy to handle them. I won $100.00 and two tickets to the M&G and to the fest next year :)

    LOL I need to measure it and see Kim! Did you measure? mine was a mess by the time we got home and unpacked. I scrubbed and re seasoned it, so it looks beautiful again. My sister and BIL where thrilled that Julia and Faith gave them theirs. Not that she will use it LOL But Brian sure will!
    That was very generous of Taratin's to give all the DO comp cooks the oven they used... and that is the other $100.00 I had to help pay for my XL. Poor DR. BBQ, I think he is still in shock that he liked an all vegi dish LOL

    I saw the pics a few days ago, and was a little mystified about how the big pastries were berries.

    Thanks so much for the explanation. Your creation is wonderful. Let me line up for a taste.

    But, strawberry huller? I've got a (crummy) melon baller.
  • MaineggMainegg Posts: 7,787
    Had a melon baller and to big to get down in side of it. most of the tips were hollow so I only had to scoop out the top and "shoulder" of the berries. Plus the teeth of the berry huller scoop easier.
