I was looking for a quick dessert to whip together, using what I had on hand, to take to a friend's house for dinner the other night. I decided to put my strawberries to use and make the wonderful cheesecake stuffed strawberries that have popped up all over the blogging world the past couple of years. I opted, however, to make it a little more adult and fun!
Amaretto Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 T Amaretto
1 pint of strawberries
Remove greens from strawberries and cut the tops so the strawberry lies flat. Then cut an X in the pointed end of the berry - not all the way to the bottom/top, but just enough that you can fill it with the cream cheese.
Whip together the cream cheese, sugar and Amaretto until smooth. Place in a piping bag or zip top bag, cutting the tip. Fill the strawberries with the wonderful mixture and sprinkle with some mini chocolate chips.
The leftover filling is wonderful with graham crackers!
