Cream Cheese Clouds Recipe

Cream Cheese Clouds Recipe

This attractive dessert is like a meringue but without all the fuss. The "clouds" are made the night before and quickly filled just before and quickly filled just before serving. In a pinch, I've used canned pie filling for the fresh strawberries.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + freezing YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 quarts fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and vanilla until smooth. Gradually add cream, beating until thickened.
  • 2. Spoon mixture into 10 mounds on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Using the back of a spoon, shape into 3-in. cups. Freeze for 2 hours or overnight.
  • 3. To serve, fill with strawberries and garnish with whipped topping. Yield: 10 servings.
