Strawberry Blossoms

12 large, fresh strawberries, rinsed
1 (3 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
2 tbsp powdered sugar
1 tbsp sour cream

Remove stems from strawberries to form a flat base. Place berries on cutting surface, pointed end facing up. With a sharp knife, carefully slice each berry in half vertically to within a 1/4 inch of base. Cut each half into three wedges to form 6 petals. (Don't slice through the base.) Pull petals apart slightly.

In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and sour cream; beat until light and fluffy. With a pastry bag and star tip, a zipper sandwich bag (squeeze out extra air before sealing and carefully cut off one corner of the bottom of the bag) or small spoon, fill strawberries with cream cheese mixture.

You can use strawberry flavored cream cheese as well.

I tried this once with non-fat cream cheese and I would not recommend it.
