Holiday snaps

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Holiday snaps

24 small strawberries
4 ounces (1/2 block) fat-free cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
24 gingersnap cookies
24 thin kiwi slices, peeled (3 or 4 kiwifruits)

Slice the green caps off the strawberries to make a flat surface on each berry and set aside. Place softened cream cheese in a bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add powdered sugar and vanilla extract, then beat until smooth. Spread about 1 teaspoon on each gingersnap. Leave the edges of the gingersnaps showing. Top cream cheese with a kiwi slice and an upside-down strawberry. Refrigerate and serve within 2 hours.
