"Clotted Cream" Filled Strawberries

Even though it felt like winter here over the weekend, it was perfect for taking pictures outside.

I set my table with my beautiful strawberry embroidered tablecloth from Bernideen  at Bernideen's Teatime, Cottage, and Garden.  Isn't it so pretty?  My darling daughter gave me the lovely angel stand that I'm keeping on my patio.  I'm using my favorite strawberry plate that I bought at now gone Pier 1....sniff, sniff; miss that store.  

My strawberry teapot is a favorite that my sis sent to me years ago.  

I have several strawberry teacups, but this one that my friend Rosie gave me from her mom's collection, looks so vintage, doesn't it?

"Clotted Cream" Filled Strawberries

"Clotted Cream" Filled Strawberries

A friend recently made this "clotted cream" and served strawberries with it. I wanted to fill my strawberries with it. This would also be good on scones, bagels, toast, etc.


  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream, very cold
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar (I used 4 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped
  • 16 large fresh strawberries
  • Special equipment:
  • a pastry bag fitted with a star tip


  1. Combine the mascarpone, heavy cream, sugar, vanilla extract and vanilla seeds in the bowl of a stand mixer and whip until soft peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, scrape the mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a star tip.
  2. Stand the strawberries upright on a platter. If the bottoms are too wobbly to stand, slice off the green stems. With a small sharp knife, cut an "X" in each strawberry, cutting almost to the bottom. (The cut should be such that the strawberry will open up but not fall apart.) With your fingertips, gently spread each strawberry apart to make "petals."
  3. With a spoon, carefully fill each strawberry with a dollop of cream, or use a pastry bag that's fitted with a star tip, and pipe the cream into the strawberry.
  4. Serve immediately.

  6. Oh boy those look so good!! I'm a sucker for any kind of "cream"!! I was just thinking about Pier 1 today. My two favorite pillows and the chair I'm sitting on as I type were all from that store...among other things. Boo...between Pier 1, Lord and Taylor and Dress Barn closing, I'm lost!!

  7. I'm loving this week's tea vignette! The strawberry teapot, teacup, and plate are so sweet! I like strawberries with whipped cream, so I would definitely enjoy it with clotted cream! I was also a fan of Pier One's pretty housewares.

  8. What a pretty setting. You have a very nice strawberry tea time collection going!

    Your table looks charming. You really do have so many pretty teacups, teapots, and dishes, my friend. That tablecloth is gorgeous, and I don't see a crease mark in it. My tablecloths always have creases in them. :D Thank you for sharing this recipe with us, and thanks so much for your visit last week. I really loved hearing from you!
