As we get closer to Christmas day the season will become even busier. This is the time where I love to have a few great dishes in the freezer ready to use. These Cream Cheese Clouds will provide for a nice dessert if friends pop in unexpected and you need something extra quick. Prepare and freeze these when the time comes defrost them during dinner and enjoy as dessert.
Cream Cheese Clouds
1- 8 ounce brick of cream cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup heavy cream
cherry pie filling
In a large mixing bowl using a hand held or stand mixer, mix together cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Slowly add cream and whip until mixture is whipped to a light and fluffy cloud. Line cookie trays with waxed paper and spoon about 1/3 cup sized mounds of the cream mixture on trays and makes a well in each mound using the back of a spoon. Freeze up to 2 hours on trays then remove to an airtight container to store in the freezer. Makes 15 clouds.
To serve- Fill each cloud with cherry pie filling or filling of choice, even fresh fruit is delicious.
Note- You can get very creative with the flavors for this recipe. Lemon, coffee, chocolate, Grand Marnier…and with a variety of fruit, the mixing and matching can go on forever!
