Yield: 8 Servings
|1 pounds||Cottage cheese|
|1 pounds||Cream cheese|
|2 cups||Heavy cream; whipped|
|Salt to taste|
|2||Boxes frozen strawberries|
|slice||French or homemade bread; thin or crackers|
Blend cheeses until smooth. Add cream & salt gradually. Line a wicker heart-shaped bakset with cheesecloth & fill with cheese mixture. Stand basket on a plate in refrigerator overnight to drain. If wicker basket not available use colander & next day pack into heart-shaped metal mold. Make homemade strawberry preserves with frozen strawberries, a little lemon juice & some sugar; cook so that berries are still fresh & syrup is a little runny. Guests spread cheese on bread or saltines, spoon on some preserves & top with one perfect strawberry.
