Stuffed Strawberries

My dear friend, Kathleen, is eight months pregnant with her first child.  Several of her friends, including myself, hosted a baby shower to celebrate this exciting time in her life.

Instead of the typical shower games, each guest painted a onesie for Kathleen to take home.  The guests were very creative and had a lot of fun.

Can you guess which one is mine?  Of course!  It's the one with the cupcake...


Amy made the cupcakes and sugar cookie favors...

I made stuffed strawberries for the party.  They're easy to make with only a few ingredients, but they are delicious.  The stuffed strawberries were a big hit.

Stuffed Strawberries

Ingredients:

1 pint fresh strawberries
1 eight ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
2 Tablespoons orange liqueur (I used 1 Tablespoon of Cointreau, and it tasted wonderful.)

Directions:
Cut green tops off strawberries.  Stand upright on the cut side.  Make an X cut at the tip 3/4 of the way down towards the bottom of each strawberry.  Beat together cream cheese, confectioner's sugar, and liqueur together until well-blended.  Place into piping bag with star tip.  Pipe filling into each strawberry and serve on a platter.
