|STRAWBERRIES WITH ALMOND CREME FILLING
8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 quart fresh whole strawberries, capped
(cut off stem ends straight across)
Beat cream cheese, sugar, and extract until smooth. Spoon into a
pastry bag fitted with medium star tip. Chill 1 hour. Quarter the
strawberries from tip to stem end without cutting through stem end.
Pipe cream cheese mixture into strawberries (berries will be upside-
down, pointed ends up, on plate). Chill until ready to serve. (Don't
fill berries too far ahead of time.) This recipe is always a big hit.
