Strawberry Cream Cups

Don’t you just love sales!!!!
I was grocery shopping, may I add ALONE. I love shopping alone now. It’s like my own private time now. I usually take my time when I am shopping alone. When you have a toddler, it’s hard to take you time grocery shopping…actually its hard shopping period. Gotta do the “hit and run” while the snack lasts!!!
Anyway, I was taking my time strolling through the isles and picked up some nice stuff on a great sale. I got some amazing looking (and smelling) strawberries and some phyllo dough. Of course, I got more stuff, but to this recipe these are the only ones that matter. 
I worked all day, so I was not feeling like cooking. I was relaxing on the couch and thinking of what I can make with all those strawberries I got. That was probably brought on by their incredible smell while I was driving home. Well I came up with this recipe and just could not sit still. I HAD TO make it!!

Ingredients:

Phyllo dough
2 tbs butter
1 cup of chopped strawberries
8 oz package of cream cheese
1.4 cup chopped almonds
3 tablespoons powder sugar

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350
2. Grease the muffin pan
3. Cut the phyllo dough into about 5×5 squares

4. Melt some butter in a small cup

 *Note: Be careful with phyllo dough. It is very thin so handle with care and love.

5. Place one slice of dough on the board. Brush lightly with butter. Place the second slice of dough right on the top and brush that one with butter. Repeat several times. If you want thin cup, use four slices. If you want thicker cups use 6 slices.

6. Slowly and carefully place the buttered dough into the muffin pan. Center of the dough to center of the hole. Fit well, but be gentle.

7. I used only four cups. But the amount of the strawberry cream we are making will be enough for 6 cups.
8. Place the muffin pan in the oven for about 10 minutes or until the cups are medium brown.

While the cups are baking…
9. Place the cream cheese into the mixing bowl, add powdered sugar and blend well.

10. Chop strawberries. Chop almonds.

11. Add strawberries and almonds to the cream cheese mixture. Mix well.

12. Make sure the cups are completely cooled before placing the strawberry cream cheese mixture into the cups.

13. Place the cups filled with strawberry cream cheese mixture into the refrigerator for about 10-15 minutes.

*Note: Be very careful and gentle when taking the cups out of the muffin pan. Very fragile!

You can serve it with tea or 

for a romantic date night!

My little guys enjoyed this very much!!!
