Ingredients

strawberries

1 pound(s), large-size (about 18 strawberries)

low fat cream cheese

4 oz, at room temperature

powdered sugar

½ cup(s)

vanilla extract

½ tsp

Instructions

  1. Wash and dry strawberries (leave green caps on).
  2. Using a paring knife, cut a wide v-shape out of the pointed end of each strawberry (like an open mouth); reserve cut out pieces of strawberries. Place cut strawberries on a serving plate, green cap-side down so they will be easy to fill.
  3. Using an electric mixer, thoroughly combine cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl.
  4. Chop reserved leftover bits of strawberries into tiny pieces and gently stir into cream cheese mixture with a spoon.
  5. Fill each cut strawberry with a small amount of cream cheese mixture using a spatula or knife. Arrange filled strawberries on a serving plate, green cap-side down. Yields 1 strawberry per serving.
Notes
Prepare this recipe the same day you plan to serve it or the strawberries will weep. Refrigerate if not serving immediately.
