For those of us who have pets, I suppose we never tire of taking their photo. The same as your children and grandchildren, right? We cannot deny how much we enjoy talking to them as they unknowingly pose for the camera. Truth be known, they are just being natural, which most often makes for the best photo op! I guess we all know by now, how much I adore this precious kitty, A.K.A. Mae.....Maypole, MaeMae, Me'Me', Mae Mo, Miss Mae, Mae Mobley, beautiful Be'Be'.....the most beautiful girl in the world...I know....what can I say?
Now sugar babes.......if you are set to entertain this weekend.....this will make you the "hostest with the mostest"......we had the Scotsman to dinner and both he and Darling actually swooned.......don't you love that? When the men in your life swoon....well, even it is over a piece of pie!
12 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
2 Cups powdered sugar
1/2 C white chocolate chips, melted
1 1/2 T orange juice
2 Cups cool whip
1 pound strawberries, sliced
3 T white chocolate chips, melted
1 t. heavy cream
Pour 1/2 cup white chocolate chips into a small bowl. Pop it into the microwave and melt the chips for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each cooking interval. Once the chips have melted, set the bowl aside allowing the chocolate to cool just a bit.
Into a large mixing bowl, place 12 ounces softened cream cheese. Beat the cream cheese until its smooth. Add 2 cups powdered sugar and mix until the two are well combined.
Add 2 cups of cool whip, 1 1/2 tablespoons orange juice, and the melted white chocolate. Add a dash of salt and then mix well, until the ingredients are nicely combined and the mixture is creamy and smooth.
Carefully spoon the filling over the cooled crust.
Wash and slice 1 pound of strawberries. Then lay them on top of the filling. Work from the outside edge and work your way toward the middle.
Melt 3 more tablespoons of white chocolate and heavy cream in the microwave. Make sure to only heat them for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each cooking interval.
Drizzle the chocolate over the top of the berries.
