I've always filled my strawberries with a sweetened cream cheese. But here is a recipe to "up the ante" on flavor. This recipe also will pipe nicely using a pastry bag. A dollop of this whipped cream is delicious on carrot cake, pineapple upside down cake or fresh fruit as well. If you want to fancy up your strawberries after filling them, you can dip them in melted chocolate. YUM!
Cream Cheese Whipped Cream
4 oz. softened cream cheese
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
1/4 cup confectioner's sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Beat the softened cream cheese with a mixer until light and fluffy. Slowly beat in the heavy cream to desired consistency. Stir in the confectioner's sugar and vanilla extract.
This makes 16 servings (dollops).Till next time......
