Cream Filled Strawberries

Really simple to make.  I changed the recepie slightly. The original recepie is  here .   This is a basic recepie and there are probably lots of things to fill these with.  The consistency was perfect.

You will need:

Pastry Bag
Large Closed Star Tip
35 Strawberries
Instant Vanilla pudding
3/4 Cup Milk
1/4 Tsp Vanilla
3/4 Cup Heavy Cream
1 Tbsp Powdered Sugar
1 Box Instant Vanilla Pudding

Bakers Bling on Etsy here

Wash your strawberries and cut out the stem.  With fat side of starwberry down, cut an X, cutting almost to the bottom of berry.

Using your kitchen aid or a hand mixer on high, beat the heavy cream and powdered sugar for 2-3 minutes.  In seperate bowl, using a whisk, beat the vanilla pudding and milk for 2 minutes.  It will stiffen really quickly!  Add the pudding mixture and the vanilla to the heavy cream, beat on medium for another 30 seconds.
Now the fun part, fill your pastry bag with all the filling, hold strawberries open with fingers and fill.
**Next time I would use strawberries that were very close in size.
