Yield: 4 Servings
Ingredients: 1 cup mascarpone cheese 1⁄2 cup heavy cream, very cold 3 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar 1⁄4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise, seeds scraped etc.
First step, Combine the mascarpone, cream, sugar, vanilla, vanilla bean seeds, and orange zest in the bowl of a stand mixer and whip until soft peaks form. Scrape the mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a star tip.
Step 2, The strawberries need to stand flat. Cut the green leaves off the strawberries so they will stand upright when placed on the platter. With a small, sharp knife, cut an × in each strawberry, cutting almost to the bottom. Gently, with your fingertips, spread each strawberry apart to make 4 “petals.”
And now, Fill each strawberry carefully with the cream and serve immediately.
