These are not so much cooking, as assembling.
If you don't like fussing, then you probably will not want to do the piping of the cream cheese, but you could just spread the cream cheese on your cracker or cookie.
For our pig roast I made some chocolate rectangular shaped cupcakes, shaved off the rounded part on top, and proceded like in the cookies. The only thing I added was because they were bigger was the strawberry fan on each one.
I was also thinking how cute to have a single layer heart shaped cake, cream cheese piped around the outside top, and the strawberries inside the cream cheese corral.
One other thing, do not make these too far in advance. If you use the Ritz crackers they will become soft after a few hours.

How to Make Strawberry Valentines

Step-by-Step

  1. Make the filling by putting the juice, sugar and cornstarch in a sauce pan, cook on med high heat a few min until smooth, thickened, and clear, add the strawberries, cook just a min more, remove from heat and add kirsch. Cool completely.
  2. Spoon cream cheese into a zip lock bag, cut the corner off, and pipe a line of cream cheese all around the edge of your cookie.
  3. Fill in your cream cheese "corral" with a little strawberry filling, top with a mini dollup whipped cream.
  4. Garnish with fans made from strawberries.

    To do that make several cuts in the strawberry the long way, starting on the narrow end, then spread like a fan.
