Additional Information

Impostor alert! A strawberry isn't really a fruit! Instead, the 200 or so tiny spots on each strawberry (called achenes) are the true fruits of each berry.

Make sure you pick up enough sour cream for this recipe. You'll need 2 1/2 cups total, so an 8-ounce container and a 16-ounce container will do it.

Which type of brown sugar-light or dark-is best in the mouthwatering topping? Both work well. Use dark brown sugar for a darker color and deeper, richer sweetness.


Store in refrigerator.
