Strawberries with Cream Cheese Filling


My friend Kristy showed me how to make these pretty strawberries.  They resemble flower petals and are piped with sweetened cream cheese.  They really brighten up a dessert table and taste delish!

Strawberries with Cream Cheese Filling

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

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.

  4. Just stoppin' by from Tuesdays at the Table. These look really tasty and really easy to make. P.S. I'm totally jealous of your pink mixer.

  5. I make these with mascarpone. My kids go gaga for them. Cream cheese I bet is super yummy as well and more convenient as I don't always have mascarpone.

  8. I make these, but your method of slicing the ends looks a little easier than my method of coring the berry. Great job. :)

  9. Hi :-) I stopped by via last weeks Tuesday at The Table link. I'm a big fan of strawberries dipped in the cream cheese/marshmellow creme dip, so I bet I'll like these to! In fact, I think I'll try making them and then tweaking them by dipping the bottoms in choc. after filled ...oops, I'm drooling, sorry!
