Slice strawberries, add sugar, add more sugar, and perhaps more. Done. This one is so easy that I spent much more effort on the garnish. Fried cinnamon circles and a dollop of Mascarpone Cheese give it extra flavors and production value. No one will ever know how simple this was to make. I won't tell, if you don't.

Classic Variation: To make it traditional Italian, add splash of really good Balsamic Vinegar (or the regular stuff, greatly reduced) and fresh ground black pepper.
