During this busy season I find it helpful to have some foods stored up in the freezer for a quick dessert, appetizer, or complete meal. These little clouds play a big part in having a beautiful dessert on the table at a moment’s notice. The clouds can be pulled from the freezer while diner is being served and will be defrosted in time to join the coffee or tea service.
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!
Come back tomorrow for Day 12.
