Make Up Monday- Strawberry and Cream Cheese Please

19 Apr

I wouldn’t say this Make Up Monday is great for you, it is just less bad than last week’s Fat Friday.  I actually used not one but three elements from the dessert pizza in this treat: strawberries, cream cheese and nuts.  It is really easy to make, not overly sweet, and has a very unique flavor.  The amount of cream cheese on the outside isn’t that much, so you feel like you’re getting a really rich dessert.

Strawberries and Cream Cheese Please

What you need:

1 pint of strawberries

8 oz of cream cheese (room temperature)

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice

1/2 cup of powdered sugar

1/4 crushed nuts (optional)

Put It All Together

Cream the cream cheese until it is whipped

Add the vanilla, lemon juice and sugar

Coat each strawberry

Roll in the nuts

Serve immediately or keep refrigerated. Enjoy!

I hope everyone has a good week! 🙂

    They were very good; the left over whipped cream cheese is dangerously tasty though.
