After making this I had some heavy cream just sitting in my refrigerator calling out to me every time I opened the door. Frozen creams are one of my favorites. I love this dessert. Whipped cream and strawberries are the perfect match in so many ways. It is rich, creamy, decadent and yet so simple. It is the perfect dessert for any meal. Now with the temperature heating up this frozen delight will hit the spot. And you could not ask for anything so easy. If you can whip cream you can make this.
It is also versatile with endless toppings. You could use most any fruit that you have available. Blueberries would be a great choice or fresh apricots with toasted almonds. My mouth waters just thinking about cranberries with oranges, sugar and toasted pecans. And more decadence could be orange marmalade with shaved chocolate. My gracious the list could go on and on. Create your own special piece of heaven.
- 1 8- oz. cream cheese
- 1 cup sifted powdered sugar
- 2 cups of whipping cream ( I used heavy)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
Beat cream cheese until smooth. Blend in powdered sugar. Add whipping cream and extract. Mix thoroughly.
There is a fine line when beating whipping cream. Just mix until the ingredients are no longer lumpy and separating. If whipped too long the result could be butter.
Pour into 8 paper lined muffin tins and freeze.
Remove paper liners before serving. Spoon fresh fruit over the top. I cut strawberries and sprinkled a little sugar over them to form the juice. Also they will be easier to eat if they sit out for about 15 minutes.
