For my daughters Strawberry Shortcake Tea Party Birthday, I found the most AMAZING strawberry filling for cupcakes. This stuff is beyond amazing.
1 cup strawberry puree
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons cold water
1/2 envelope unflavored powdered gelatin
1/2 cup diced, fresh strawberries
Heat puree and sugar in a small saucepan just until it begins to bubble, stirring to dissolve sugar. Stir in lemon juice and remove from heat.
Put water in a small bowl and sprinkle gelatin on top. Let sit for 5 minutes.
Add fruit puree mixture to the bowl and stir until gelatin is completely dissolved.
Stir in diced strawberries and chill until set.
