Cream Cheese Stuffed Strawberries

Cream Cheese Stuffed Strawberries

Fresh strawberries from Plant City, Florida have made it to our local grocery stores.  They are sweet all by themselves.  The first basket that I bought I only washed them and then commenced to eating them.  I bought two more baskets on Tuesday and I knew I wanted to try this recipe with them.  Cream cheese is good with everything, so I knew it would be a good stuffing for strawberries.  Can't ya just taste 'em?  This could be a nice surprise for your Valentine.

Cream Cheese Stuffed Strawberries

20 whole large strawberries, hulled
8 oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla or almond extract

Cut a thin slice from the bottom of each strawberry, so the berries stand upright.  Place berries, cut side down, on a serving platter.  

In a mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until combined but still stiff.  Using a teaspoon, fill each strawberry.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
