This is one of the easiest desserts to make, but people just LOVE it. The first time I ever had this dessert was in 1992 when I was visiting my friend Shannon Brown at Appalachian State University. We went out to eat at Macado’s Restaurant on King Street. I ordered this dessert and fell in love. To this day, I still love it!
From start to finish, this recipe will take you 15 minutes.
1 pint fresh strawberries
3 tbsp granulated sugar
Bakery fresh croissants
Vanilla bean ice cream
One day prior to serving this dessert, cut strawberries into bite-sized pieces. Mix well with sugar. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Immediately before serving, cut croissants and place open-faced in stove on broil until croissants are browned.
Place bottom of croissant in a bowl.
Cover with one scoop of ice cream and strawberries.
Place top on croissant.
Top with whipped cream.
You will love it! (I also sometimes use a buttered biscuit instead of a croissant. Then, you have more of a shortcake feel. Either way, your taste buds will smile.)
