Florida Fruit Recipe

Florida Strawberry Panini

1 pint strawberries, 3/4 of them sliced thin
8 slices sourdough bread (1/2 inch thick)
1/2 cup mascarpone cheese (soft Italian cheese)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 jar strawberry jam
  powdered sugar in a shaker for dusting

Heat a Panini press or stove top griddle over medium heat. Spread the mascarpone on 4 of the sour dough bread slices. Spoon 3 heaping tablespoons of the jam on each of the other 4 slices. Arrange the fresh sliced strawberries in a single layer on top of the jam and close the sandwiches. Brush the sandwiches with the butter and grill or press until golden brown and bubbly, around 5 minutes. Transfer the panini to a cutting board and dust with powdered sugar. Carefully cut each sandwich in half and serve with whole strawberries for garnish.
