The other day I made my Pineapple Coconut Carrot Naked Cake and I had some left over cream cheese frosting. If you have found yourself in the same predicament, then you will love this recipe. It is simple. First cut the tops and tips off your strawberries, scoop out the center, and fill with cream cheese frosting. You will want to sprinkle some graham cracker crust (or cinnamon works nicely as well. I am in love with cinnamon and cream together) over the top to finish it off. Arrange on a platter. I do a little volunteer work at my local art center. I brought these in to share with the group and they absolutely LOVED them! If you are making this recipe from scratch read on for directions on how to make the cream cheese filling.
1 bushel of strawberries
5 graham crackers crushed
1 package of Philadelphia Cream Cheese (or any cream cheese you like) softened.
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar (or to taste)
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Cut the tops and the tips off of your strawberries so that they won’t topple over when placed on a serving tray. Scoop out their cavities.
Beat cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar, and vanilla extract together in a bowl until smooth. Spoon into a piping bag. Fill the cavities of the cored strawberries with the cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle with crushed graham crackers.
Arrange on a dish. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. Bon Appétit!
