Strawberry Crostada

I am featuring one of my favorite summer time desserts again
because the girl's over at Everyday Sisters
are having a party starring Red Recipes!
I just love their blog and I know you will too!
Stop over and visit the sisters - you are in for a treat.

This is so delicious with a show-stopping presentation!

Sweet Strawberry Crostada
1 1/2 lbs. strawberries
2 T sugar, for sprinkling
(or more, to taste)
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 T flour
2 T sugar
1 T vanilla
1 pie crust

 Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

Hull and slice strawberries.
Sprinkle with sugar and set aside.

 Mix together cream cheese, flour, sugar & vanilla.

 Line large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the pie crust on the parchment paper.

 Spread the cream cheese mixture on the pie crust
leaving a one inch border around the edge.

 Pile the strawberries on top of the cream cheese.

Work your way around the pie crust
folding the edges up every one inch or so.

 Bake for 20-25 minutes.
Allow to cool and serve at room temperature or slightly warm.

The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
