Using a paring knife, grapefruit spoon or strawberry

huller, remove stems from strawberries and the white

hull inside. Place hollowed out strawberries back in

refrigerator while mixing stuffing.

 

Mix together cream cheese, powdered sugar and

desired amount of amaretto until mixture is smooth.

 

Place mixture in a pastry bag fitted with plain tip or a20140417_165030_Ringneck-Dr-300x225

plastic bag with the corner snipped off and pipe into

strawberries. Sometimes I just spoon in with a

teaspoon – quick & easy!

 

Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

 

You could decorate these in lots of fun ways:

 

Use pastel frosting to add polka dots

Dip in chocolate

Add chopped nuts or shaved coconut
