Strawberry Wonton Cups with Orange Marscapone Whipped Cream by Giada De Laurentis

Last up for our cooking club was dessert.   Larry and Kim took this task on and made a delicious light dessert.  There was also a flaming drink involved, we'll stick to the dessert for now :-)  All around all three recipes were delicious and time with friends is always cherished.

2 C strawberries finely diced
1 Tbls powdered sugar
3 Tbls fresh squeezed orange juice. 

Combine strawberries, sugar and orange juice and let macerate (get juicy) for 20 minutes

24 wonton wrappers
Cooking spray

While strawberries are macerating spray mini muffin tin with cooking spray and place wonton wrappers in every other muffin cup making a ruffled cup shape. Bake 5-6 minutes in a 350 oven until edges are golden 

Marscapone Cream:

1 C heavy whipping cream
1/2 C Marscapone cheese - room temp
3 Tbls powdered sugar
Zest from 1 medium orange

Combine ingredients and whip until cream has soft peaks, approximately 2 minutes. 

To assemble cups:
Drain berries, reserving liquid and place a few berry slices in bottom of wonton cups. Layer with a dollop of cream, more strawberries and top with another dollop of cream. Drizzle reserved berry juice on top.
