Sunday was an exciting day for me. My future daughter in law had her wedding shower. We are very lucky to have her become part of our family. They served chocolate covered strawberries at the wedding shower which made me want to post this recipe. These are so good and the last time I made them, they disappeared almost as fast as I could make them! My husband planted strawberries last year in our garden. You have to pick off the flower the first year so that the plant can save energy to develope it’s roots. We can’t wait to see how many plants made it through the winter and if they produce berries this year. If they do, I guarantee this recipe will be put to good use.
14-16 large ripe strawberries
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup powdered sugar
Wash strawberries and cut off the stems. Cut a hole in the center of the strawberries cutting away the white part. Slice the small point off of the bottom of the strawberry so it sits upright but being careful not to cut so much off that you make a hole in the strawberry. Cream the cream cheese, vanilla, and sugar with the back of a spoon. Fill a pastry bag or Ziploc bag (cut a hole in the corner) with the mixture and pipe into the strawberry holes. Serve immediately and refrigerate leftovers….if you have any!
