Strawberry Santas

1 lb large strawberries
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
3-4 Tablespoons powdered sugar (or sugar substitute - to taste)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Rinse strawberries and cut around the top of the strawberry. Remove the top, (enough for a hat). I scooped out enough of the pulp of the hat so that it will fit over the filling. Scoop out most of the insides of the strawberry with a paring knife, if necessary - some of them are hollow already. Prep all of the strawberries and set aside.
2. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Add cream cheese mix to a piping bag or Ziploc with the corner snipped off. Fill the strawberries with cheesecake mixture.
3. Once strawberries are filled, top with the 'hats.' Decorate according to photo.
4. If not serving immediately, refrigerate until serving.
I didn't know what to use for the eyes, but I'm thinking I'll buy one of those little chocolate cake decorating tubes you find in the baking aisle of the grocery store and pipe on just a smidgeon! Wouldn't this be a cute appetizer at a Christmas gathering?

Update on 12/18/12: I made some of these quickly this afternoon for a party tonight. I didn't pipe out the filling so they were a little lop-sided and I used blue sprinkles for the eyes. The black eyes look much better. The Santa's looked more like they were from Mars, but still yummy. Just not quite as cute as the original photo above.

Wishing all my followers a very Merry Christmas!
