Strawberries with Cream Cheese Filling

  • Author: Jenna


32 fresh whole strawberries
12 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1/4 tsp almond extract


Cut a thin slice from the stem end of each strawberry so that they stand upright, then cut each berry carefully into four wedges, cutting almost to, but not through, the bottoms.  Fan the wedges just slightly, but be careful not to break them.  Set berries aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, confectioners sugar and almond extract until light and fluffy.  Pipe filling into strawberries using a decorating bag with decorative tip.  Grate chocolate over top to garnish.
Cover and chill until ready to serve.
