Amaretto Cream Filled Strawberries
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
4 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
3-4 tablespoons amaretto (can use 1-2 teaspoons
almond extract for a non-alcoholic version)
16 large fresh strawberries
Using a paring knife, grapefruit spoon or strawberry huller, remove stems from strawberries and the white hull inside
Place hollowed out strawberries back in the refrigerator while mixing stuffing.
Mix together cream cheese, powdered sugar and your desired amount of amaretto until mixture is smooth.
Place mixture in a pastry bag fitted with plain tip or a 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
