The word "dumpling" used in this context is a little misleading. This sweet biscuit topping is similar to the savory biscuit topping or "dumplings" on stew. The result is a variation of cobbler or a one-pan shortcake.

4. Strawberry Mousse Recipe

The use of gelatin in the recipe ensures a perfect unmolding every time. Red or white wine can be used to make this mousse uniquely Polish.

This strawberry jam recipe is made without pectin. Just three ingredients are required -- fresh, mashed strawberries, lemon juice and sugar. The lemon juice and sugar can be adjusted to your personal taste. This is a soft-set jam that can be processed in a water bath for longer storage or refrigerated for up to two weeks or frozen for up to one year.

A crunchy meringue topping on this baked strawberry tart is a nice change of pace from from its whipped cream counterparts.

This egg- and dairy-free strawberry sorbet is more like a granita or fruit ice than a true sorbet. Only the fruit juices are used. Reserve the actual strawberries for Strawberry Soup (listed below) or Strawberry Dumpling Dessert (listed above).

9. Strawberry Chiffon Cake Recipe

This Polish strawberry chiffon cake has a surprise inside -- whipped cream and chopped strawberries. It can be frosted wth more sweetened whipped cream but that's a bit like gilding the lily. I like to use a dusting of confectioners' sugar. The chiffon cake is a perfect candidate for overripe strawberries, but the filling needs to be made with berries that are a little firmer.

10. Strawberry Soup Recipe

This refreshing strawberry soup can be eaten hot or cold and its sugar content adjusted to taste. Although today it has become a "gourmet" offering, it has its roots with Polish farmers who ate it cold as a thirst-quenching lunch when coming in from the fields.
