Strawberry Truffles Recipes

Strawberry Truffles:
8 oz. cream cheese at room temperature
5 oz. white chocolate
4 cup confectioner's sugar
1 tsp. grated fresh ginger root
18 medium fresh strawberries
1/4 cup finely minced crystallized ginger (get it in a gourmet food store or well stocked
1/2 cup toasted coconut
1/2 cup finely chopped pistachio nuts

Makes about 18 truffles
Melt white choclate in the top of a double boiler, let cool.
Beat together the cream cheese, sugar and ginger root until smooth. Add melted white
chocolate and mix well. Chill for at least 1 hour or until easy to handle. Use a small melon
baller (or small spoon) to scoop out the center of each strawberry, half way down each fruit.
Pat strawberry dry. Put a little crystallized ginger into each strawberry. Shape the cheese
mixture around the fruit. Coat one end in the toasted coconut, the other in the pistachio nuts.
Place truffles in candy cups and chill until serving time.
