Grown-up steps
  1. In a bowl, add cream cheese that's been softened to room temperature. Beat until smooth and creamy. Add powdered sugar, sour cream, lemon zest, and vanilla extract. Mix until combined.
  2. Transfer cream cheese filling to a piping bag with a star tip. Alternatively, use a sandwich bag and snip off the corner to create your own piping bag.
  3. Slice off the green stems from your strawberries. Cut away the top third of the fruit. This will serve as Santa's face.
  4. Squeeze cream cheese filling onto your strawberry base. Gently place Santa’s face on top.
  5. Make a smaller cut in the other corner of your sandwich bag. Dot some filling on your strawberry tip to make a hat, and pipe on Santa's buttons. Use mini chocolate chips for eyes. Repeat until you have a delightful row of Santa Clauses!
