Is your friend having a boy? Don't despair: Prepare the perfect blue-themed baby shower eats for her celebration. By Quick & Simple Staff (Image: Erik Rank) Ingredients

Cupcake Recipe

  • 1 package(s) (18 1/4-oz.) cake mix, plain white or yellow
  • 1 package(s) (3-oz.) strawberry gelatin
  • 1 cup(s) (finely chopped fresh) strawberries, with juice (from 1 1/2 cups whole berries)
  • 3/4 cup(s) milk
  • 3/4 cup(s) vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs

Frosting Recipe

  • 1 package(s) (8-oz.) cream cheese, reduced-fat, at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoon(s) (1/2 stick) butter, unsalted, at room temperature
  • 3 cup(s) (up to 3 1/2 cups) confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 1/2 cup(s) (fresh ) strawberries, mashed and drained (3/4 cup hulled berries)
  • sprinkles, pink and white, for garnish (optional)
  • 24 slice(s) strawberry, for garnish (optional)

Directions

  • Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F. Line 24 cupcake cups with paper liners.
  • Combine the cake mix, gelatin, strawberries and juice, milk, oil and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Blend with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds. Stop the machine and scrape down the sides of the bowl. Increase mixer speed to medium and beat 2 minutes more, scraping down sides again if needed. Spoon about 1/3 cup batter into each lined cupcake cup, filling it 3/4 full. (You will get between 22 and 24 cupcakes; remove empty liners, if any.) Place pans side by side in the oven.
  • Bake until cupcakes are lightly golden and spring back when pressed gently with a finger, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven, place pans on wire racks to cool for 5 minutes, then remove cupcakes to wire racks to cool for another 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare frosting: Blend cream cheese and butter in large mixing bowl with electric mixer on low speed until combined, 30 seconds. Stop mixer and add 3 cups confectioners’ sugar and the mashed strawberries. Mix on low speed until incorporated, 1 minute. Increase speed to medium and blend until frosting is fluffy, 30 to 45 seconds longer, adding up to 1/2 cup more sugar if needed to get a spreadable consistency.
  • Place a heaping tablespoon of frosting on each cupcake and swirl to spread it out with back of spoon. Refrigerate, uncovered, until frosting sets, 20 minutes. Decorate with sprinkles and strawberry slices, if desired.

Thanks to Good housekeeping for this delicious recepie. We all love a good piece of warm pie with a spoon of ice cream (image by Antonis Achilleos)

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/2 cup(s) (1 stick) butter or margarine, cold, cut into pieces
  • 1/4 cup(s) vegetable shortening
  • 5 tablespoon(s) (more as needed) ice water

Berry Filling

  • 3/4 cup(s) sugar
  • 1/4 cup(s) cornstarch
  • 2 large (1 pound) Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 3/4-inch chunks
  • 5 cup(s) assorted berries such as blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and sliced strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon(s) milk or cream
  • 2 teaspoon(s) sugar

Directions

  • Prepare Pastry: In large bowl, combine flour and salt. With pastry blender or 2 knives used scissors-fashion, cut in butter and shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Sprinkle in ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing lightly with fork after each addition until dough is just moist enough to hold together.
  • Shape dough into 2 disks, 1 slightly larger than the other. Wrap each disk in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes or overnight. (If chilled overnight, let dough stand 30 minutes at room temperature before rolling.)
  • Prepare Berry Filling: In large bowl, combine sugar and cornstarch. Add apples and berries; gently toss to combine.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Adjust oven rack to lowest position in bottom of oven. Line large cookie sheet with foil; place in oven while oven preheats.
  • On lightly floured surface, with floured rolling pin, roll larger disk of dough into 13-inch round. Ease round into 9 1/2-inch deep-dish pie plate. Trim edge, leaving 1-inch overhang. Spoon filling into crust.
  • Roll remaining disk of dough into 12-inch round. With floured pastry wheel or knife, cut dough into 1-inch-wide strips. Brush edge of bottom crust with some milk. Place half of strips, about 3/4 inch apart, across top of pie. Place remaining strips perpendicular to first strips or use to weave a lattice. Trim ends, leaving 1-inch overhang. Press strip ends onto edge of bottom crust to seal. Turn overhang up and over ends of strips; pinch to seal and make a high fluted edge. Brush lattice with remaining milk; sprinkle with remaining 2 teaspoons sugar.
  • Place pie plate on hot foil-lined cookie sheet. Bake pie 20 minutes. Reset oven control to 375 degrees F. Bake pie 1 hour and 30 minutes longer or until filling bubbles and crust is deep golden brown. Cover pie loosely with foil after first hour of total baking time to prevent overbrowning. Cool pie on wire rack about 2 hours to serve warm, or cool completely to serve later.
