For the perfect appetizer for baby showers, garnish each one of these cream-stuffed goodies with a bit of cream cheese and one, two or even more individual peas, depending on how many she’s expectin’! Or if you prefer, garnish with cooked baby shrimp.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 20 pods snow peas
  • 1 (8 ounce) container herb and garlic flavored cream cheese, softened
  • 1 bunch spinach - rinsed, stemmed, and dried

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Remove string from pods and trim off the blossom end. Make a small slit on flat side of pod. Soak pods in ice water for about 1 1/2 hours. Drain and dry pods.
  2. 2 Put cream cheese in a pastry bag and pipe enough cheese into pods until full. Arrange pods on a platter lined with spinach or lettuce. Garnish each pod with a bit of cream cheese studded with the appropriate number of peas, depending on how many the mother-to-be is expecting.

  4. I have made these for years for catering jobs, but my method is so much simpler. It has to be quicker when you have to make dozens or hundreds. Rinse, drain and dry (on a towel) pea pods. I pop off the stems & slit open one side with a sharp paring knife. I mix - Read more ...
  5. I made these for my "sweet pea" baby shower. Prepped pods as directed and between prepping soaking and filling - I had at least 3 hours in this! Wasn't worth the time and for a 30 person shower (double batch) and folks didn't really like them - had a ton left over. Might be okay - Read more ...
  6. I made these years ago. They are delicious and fun to make. Always a big hit. I had to make double what I needed because I ate about every other one.
