Taste of the County: Stuffed Strawberries

Valentine Night Strawberries
**** Prep
Recipe By: michellej
"Strawberries stuffed with lightly-sweetened cream cheese and walnuts are perfect for that romantic evening. They go
great with champagne! Pecans also work well in this recipe."
20 fresh strawberries
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
11/2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
1 Dice two strawberries and set aside. Cut the stems off of each of the remaining strawberries, forming a base for
strawberries to stand on. Starting at the pointed ends and cutting most of the way, but not completely through
the stem end, slice each strawberry into four wedges.
2 Beat the cream cheese until fluffy; stir in the diced strawberries, walnuts, and powdered sugar. Spoon or pipe
about a teaspoon of mix into each strawberry.
