Cream Cheese and Pecan Stuffed Berries Cream Cheese and Pecan Stuffed Berries

Servings: 20 berries
Prep Time: 15 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

20   whole large strawberries, hulled
8 ounce cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
2/3 cup chopped pecans





Cut a thin slice from the bottom of each strawberry so the berries stand upright. Place berries, cut side down, on a serving platter. Carefully cut the berries into 4 wedges, cutting almost to, but not through, the bottoms with a criss-cross cut. Fan wedges just slightly, taking care not to break them. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until combined but still stiff. Using a teaspoon or pastry bag with decorative tip, fill the strawberries with the cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle chopped pecans on top of the stuffed strawberries. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

I am looking for the trifle recipe that was featured on the same show as the Cream Cheese and Pecan Stuffed Berries. It was made in a 9 X 13 dish and had lady fingers, pudding and berries. I can't remember the name and have been unable to locate on your site. Just e-mail the name and I will try to find it on your site. Thanks.
