Stuffing the berry

I have had my eyes on this recipe for over a year now. Thank goodness I was finally able to make it. They were yummy and everyone loved them.


Stuffed Strawberries
(Source: allrecipes.com)

Ingredients
1 pint fresh strawberries
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, or to taste
2 tablespoons orange flavored liqueur, or to taste

Directions
Cut the tops off of the strawberries and stand upright on the cut side. Make a cut 3/4 of the way down from the tip of the strawberry towards the bottom.
Beat together the cream cheese, sugar, and liqueur until smooth in a mixer or a food processor. Place into a piping bag with a star tip. Pipe into each strawberry and arrange on a serving platter.

My Modifications
* I used vanilla extract instead of the orange liqueur
* I made 2 slices in the berries instead of one so there would be 4 pieces instead of 2.
