These stuffed strawberries are little lighter than the average ones, because of the use of ricotta cheese.  It makes the stuffing almost cloud like.

Author:
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup ricotta cheese
  • ⅓ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon orange juice
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 quart strawberries
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl beat together all ingredients, except strawberries, until smooth.
  2. Using a small paring knife cut a little bit off the tip of the berry so it will stand up straight.  Cut the top off and using a small spoon or melon baller scoop out some of the middle of the strawberry.  Fill each strawberry with a small spoon or place filling in a pipping bag and fill that way.  Garnish with fresh mint if desired.
  3. Eat!
