Special Stuffed Strawberries

These sweet bites can be made ahead of time, and they look really colorful on a tray. I sometimes sprinkle the piped filling with finely chopped pistachio nuts. —Marcia Orlando, Boyertown, Pennsylvania

    These are really tasty and look so pretty too. I crunched up a couple of graham crackers and sprinkled a bit on top for a bit of texture and taste.

    The ladies at our "coffee" loved these strawberries. I felt like I was in a battle making them but maybe I was too worried about how they looked. I used a cookie decorator with a wide tip to fill them (since I am awkward). I thought they were messy to pick up. It might have been good to add a little extra powdered sugar to stiffen the filling as someone mentioned. Nonetheless, everyone at our coffee wanted the recipe and there sure weren't any left. I'll try again for sure.

    I forgot to add in my last post: I melted some semi-sweet chocolate chips with a little Crisco (in the microwave) and lightly drizzled the topping from a fork over the top of the berries - not enough to cover them, just to add another dimension of flavor and color. Worked really well.

    I am making this a second time for the same group of people - who went wild over them the first time. I made some slight changes, but otherwise made it exactly according to the recipe. I added powdered sugar to the filling recipe (I doubled the recipe, so I added about a cup) so it would be nice and thick and hold up well. Also, this time I plan to buy smaller strawberries. The big ones are not nearly as sweet (and they take more filling).After I was almost through with the first ones I made (over 50 berries), I learned that if you gently bend back each of the "petals" of the strawberry before you fill the berries, they will fill more evenly, leaving a more polished look. All in all, a very easy recipe that looks like you spent a great deal of time and effort. BTW, I made them the night before and refrigerated them (in two containers of a single layer each). They did just fine - I was concerned that the berries might weep, especially with the added sugar, but that was not the case. These got rave reviews; try them!

    I've made these a couple of times and they go over very well. I started dipping them in chocolate too.

    I did not like these at all. I will try them again, but only to make sure i didn't make a mistake in the recipe the first time. I was actually excited to bring these to a family function and had my family excited to taste them, but luckily i tasted one before i brought them. YUCK!!!!! And i am really surprised bc i LOVE strawberries and cream cheese...not good!

    I've made this recipe several times, using reduced fat cream cheese, reduced fat sour cream and sweetened with a bit of stevia. I tinted it light pink. It was a hit! Perfect light dessert!!

    This was SOOOOO easy to make and tasted SO good. I need to find other ways to use this filling, maybe spread on top of a shortcake and covered with sliced, glazed strawberries. Mmmmm, sounds good.

    This recipe looks scrumptios. My only thought regarding an add-on might be to dip the bottoms in chocolate or drizzle some over the tops - mmm mmmm good!grandmalicious
