Cheesecake filled Strawberries

With strawberry season right around the corner, I have been searching for some new strawberry recipes.  I came across this one from the Our Best Bites cookbook and decided to make them for a summer cookout this past weekend.  The recipe was simple and just a little bit fussy, but everyone at the party raved about these strawberries.  This recipe is definitely a keeper!

Cheesecake filled strawberries

2 pints of medium to large strawberries
1 8oz brick of cream cheese
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp almond extract
Wash and dry your strawberries.

Mixed the softened cream cheese with the powdered sugar and almond extract.  Set aside.

Using a knife, slice the strawberry about 3/4 of the way down from tip to stem, being careful not to cut the strawberry in half.  Then, slice the strawberry the other direction, so you have made at “X’.

Fill a pastry bag with the filling and, using the star tip, fill each strawberry with the cream cheese mixture.

These can also be drizzled with chocolate or even half filled and then chocolate dipped, like Stef’s mother-in-law suggested!   Next time I will most definitely add some chocolate.
