Filled Strawberries and The Bunny Napkin Fold



The strawberries at the market have been decent, so they will be on our Easter menu. If your schedule is very busy like mine, filled strawberries are quick with the prep time being about 30 minutes. They are best served the same day you make them.. My family will be joining us, and we are up to 14 people. Tomorrow evening, I am looking forward to hosting a dinner for friends. 


Filled Strawberries
=============

8 ounces room-temperature cream cheese

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 TB tablespoons confectioners' sugar

12 strawberries

Directions:
Whip room-temperature cream cheese on medium speed until slightly fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract and 2 TB confectioners' sugar.

Trim tops and bottoms of 12 strawberries to level. Use a small melon baller to scoop out tops.

Fill a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch star tip with cream cheese mixture; pipe into berries until it brims over tops.

Toast 1/4 cup sliced almonds in a 350°oven until golden-brown,
3 to 6 minutes; arrange slices over filling.

Our Easter table will be filled with bunnies. I found a tutorial on You Tube that was easy to follow, and I  mastered the Bunny Napkin Fold. I wrote to her and told her that the video was great.

Thank you for stopping by! I will be joining Foodie Friday at Rattlebridge Farm.

Happy Easter,

  5. Your filled strawberries are so gorgeous! I think the first of the season are always the best, or is it just because I am hungry for them. I love the bunny fold napkin! I need to master that too. I hope you have a wonderful Easter. Joni

  6. Strawberries will make an appearance here this weekend also, along with the bunny napkins which I've used for several years on our Easter table. I think it's one of my most-pinned photos. Yours looks darling with the pom-pom nose! Happy Easter, Debbie!

  10. Late for Easter wishes, so I'll wish you Happy Spring. Those strawberries are gorgeous! Wish I had a few for my morning yogurt. Cute bunny napkins too. Hope all is good and that NY is getting some warmer temps. Going to be in the 90s here the next few days. I'm not ready to let go of our wonderful spring days.

  11. I had such beautiful strawberries this year and I thought of making filled strawberries but ran right out of time so I dipped them. I am going to have to make them soon. I had tried the funny bunny napkin a couple of years ago too and thought of it this year but again ran out of time. Your's look delicious and the napkin so so cute!
