First, gather the ingredients. You will need strawberries, brown sugar and sour cream. Yes, I said sour cream! Remember, just trust me. 😉You only need threee ingredients for this yummy and simple dessert.

  1. We used to do this when we were kids too, except we used sugar in the raw. What a great memory. Thank you for the reminder! 😊💜

  2. Glad you love your new brown sugar thingy! You can actually find them all over the place online–I’ve seen them at Vermont Country Store, World Market, Bed Bath and Beyond, Sur La Table, King Arthur Flour even has their own with their logo on it–and they’re inexpensive, too! TOTAL game changer.
