Festive Fourth of July Strawberries

Festive Fourth of July Strawberries


6 ounces cream cheese, room temperature 

4 teaspoons confectioners’ sugar 

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 

12 strawberries, hulled 

12 small blueberries 



In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar, and vanilla extract on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a 1/2-inch star tip. 

Trim 1/2-inch from bottom of each strawberry so that it sits flat. Use a small melon baller to scoop out the center of each berry. Pipe cream cheese mixture into berries until it brims over the tops. Finish each strawberry with a blueberry garnish. Store, covered lightly with plastic wrap, in the refrigerator for up to 2 hours.
