Churros with Strawberries and Cream

(c) 2008 Lisa Sierra Licensed to About.com
May is the month for strawberries, so strawberry desserts are very popular for Mother’s Day and for graduations. Our own creation, this strawberry dessert is not a traditional Spanish recipe, but combines elements found in many Spanish desserts – custard, whipped cream and fruit with a favorite - churros. Be sure to allow enough time to chill the custard.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Chill Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes

Yield: 6 Servings

Ingredients:

Preparation:

Make the egg custard (recipe link below) and allow to cool. Once cool, chill in refrigerator.

To whip the cream, pour into a very clean medium-size mixing bowl. Sprinkle sugar into bowl. Using a hand mixer, whip cream until it forms stiff peaks. Cover and refrigerate until serving.

Rinse the strawberries under cold water. Remove stems and slice. Place in a mixing bowl. Cover tightly and refrigerate until serving.

Just before you serve, make the churros (recipe link below) and allow to drain on paper towels.

Set out 6 individual bowls and spoon several tablespoons of custard in the bottom of each bowl. Cover with a thick layer of whipped cream, then sliced strawberries.
