    Could you use strawberry puree instead of strawberries?
    If so how much?

    Hello! If strawberries are not in season, I’m wondering if I can replace the fresh strawberries with thawed frozen ones?

    Just made these with all organic ingredients. Did make them with a different frosting, but they were a hit at our daughter’s birthday party! Thank you!

    Can I use more strawberry preserves instead of the fresh strawberries for this? :

    I’m making these for my daughter’s birthday treat for her class on Tuesday. They are in the oven now and going to frost them tomorrow. Should I keep them in the refrigerator until Tuesday morning?
