“A local steakhouse used to serve a strawberry dessert that I just loved, but unfortunately they closed. I just found this recipe and think it may be the strawberry dessert like they used to serve. It was always served chilled and the strawberries seemed to be slightly frozen. I'm hoping this is the same recipe!”
