Strawberry and Cream Cheese filled Skinnies

Skinnies are a fav in my fam for breakfast/lunch/dinner. I remember my mom and my aunt making them as a child and they still remain a fav of mine! To celebrate the end of another semester of school I knew that we had to have a killer breakfast and since I still have bags and bags of strawberries in my freezer from making freezer jam, strawberry filled skinnies were a perfect choice! I could seriously eat these every day! Strawberry and Cream Cheese filled Skinnies
Strawberry filling

2 cups strawberries, whole or halved
Sugar (to taste)
2 Tbsp Water

Cook the strawberries, sugar and water in a sauce pan over medium heat until the mixture begins to boil. Cook until the strawberries have softened and the desired consistency is achieved.

Cream Cheese Filling

8 oz Cream cheese, room temperature
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup Whipped cream, cool whip can be used to

Beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Add 1/2 cup whipped cream and beat again until incorporated. Fold in remaining whipped cream. (If you want the cream cheese lighter, fold in more whipped cream.)
To assemble skinnies: Place a skinny on a plate, spoon in desired cream cheese and strawberry fillings. roll up skinny and serve with additional whipped cream and strawberries on top. Enjoy!
