ion to cakes, muffins, brownies, biscuits and more.
Nobody will argue that the best way to truly enjoy strawberries is simply

change things up. So give these "berry delicious" recipes a try and enjoy some
new ways to savor some of the season's best garden treats.

Strawberry
Layer Cake and
Strawberry
Cream Cheese
Frosting

1 box white cake mix
3-ounce box strawberry gelatin
15-ounce package frozen strawberries in syrup, thawed and pureed
4 large eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting, recipe follows
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease two 9-inch round cake pans.
In a large bowl, combine cake mix and gelatin. Add strawberries, eggs, oil
and water. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour batter into prepared pans and bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in
the center comes out clean.
Let cakes cool in pans for 10 minutes. Remove from pans, and cool completely on wire racks. Frost with recipe below.

Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting
1/4 cup butter, softened
8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
10-ounce package frozen strawberries in syrup, thawed and pureed
1/2 teaspoon strawberry extract, optional
7 cups powdered sugar
Freshly sliced strawberries, for garnish, optional
In a large bowl, beat butter and cream cheese at medium speed with an electric
mixer until creamy. Beat in 1/4 cup of the strawberry puree and the strawberry
extract. (The rest of the puree is leftover but can be used in smoothies or on ice
cream for a delicious treat.) Gradually add confectioners' sugar, beating until
smooth.
Spread frosting between layers and on top and sides of cooled cake. Garnish
with fresh sliced strawberries, if desired.

Strawberry Cheesecake Brownies
1 box fudge brownie mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
4 large eggs, divided
Two 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup strawberry jam
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-inch-by-13-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray. Combine brownie mix, oil, water and 2 eggs in large bowl. Spread
brownie batter into prepared pan. Bake 10 minutes - crust shouldn't be completely hardened at this point.
While brownie crust bakes, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat
in sweetened condensed milk. Mix in remaining eggs, lemon juice and vanilla
until smooth. Pour evenly over warm brownie crust.
Stir jam until smooth. Drop by teaspoonfuls over surface of filling. With a
knife, swirl jam gently through filling to create marble effect. Bake additional
30 minutes. Cool, then loosely cover and chill in refrigerator for several hours
before cutting into squares and serving.
