How to Make ~ Strawberries & Cream ~
- In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar and beat until well blended. Taste and adjust sweetness if need be. Beat in vanilla.
Add cream and mix just until incorporated. Chill until ready to use. If too thick, thin out some with more cream or milk. You don't want it too thin to where it ends up in the bottom of the dish.
- Place 3 - 4 spoonfuls of cream over the strawberries I tap the dish on the counter, so it mingles down through the strawberries. If you want to get fancy, add some squirt-able whipped cream and a strawberry on top.
Such a quick, easy and pretty dessert. Impressive enough to serve to quests.
Keep any leftover cream chilled.
