Strawberry Blossoms

8 to 12 large strawberries
1 3-ounce pkg. cream cheese, softened
2 tbsp. powdered sugar
1 tbsp. sour cream

Cut stems from berries to form a flat base. Place on cutting surface with pointed side up. With sharp knife, carefully slice each berry in half to within ¼ inch of the base. Cut each half into 3 wedges, forming six petals. (Do not slice through base.) Pull petals apart slightly. In small bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar and sour cream until light and fluffy. With pastry bag and star tip, fill berries with cream cheese mixture.

(HINT: If you don’t have a pastry bag, fill a plastic sandwich bag with cream cheese filling, squeeze filling to one corner of the bag, and cut off the tip.)
