Rainy Day

On this rainy day I like to lie in bed and hibernate
Sometimes though that is not possible
So I get up
Cup of tea
Pass on these little Santa helpers
Life is good

1 lb large strawberries
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
3-4 Tablespoons powdered sugar (or sugar substitute - to taste)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1Rinse strawberries and cut around the top of the strawberry. Remove the top, (enough for the hat).
  • 2Clean out the whole strawberry with a paring knife, if necessary (some of them are hollow already. Prep all of the strawberries and set aside.
  • 3In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Add cream cheese mix to a piping bag. Fill the strawberries with cheesecake mixture.
  • 4Once strawberries are filled, top with the ‘hats’. Decorate according to photo.
  • 5Service immediately or refrigerate until serving.
