Day 99 : Heavenly Filled Strawberries

Though not one for strawberry flavoring, I do enjoy fresh strawberries, whether dipped in chocolate, on a shortcake, or even filled like we did tonight.  It’s such an easy method, and looks great on a plate for a party appetizer or dessert.  The recipe I followed actually called for cream cheese, but I used marscapone because I like it better.

I made it with the listed amounts, and ended up with quite a bit of left over filling.  I either didn’t stuff them as well as I could or the measurements were a bit generous.  Either way is fine because the filling will go great on plenty of other things but you might want to take note if you would rather not have so much left over to possibly decrease it a bit.

 

Heavenly Filled Strawberries

Serves : 4                    Time to make : 10 minutes

Ingredients :

  • 1 lb fresh strawberries, cleaned and hulled
  • 11 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. almond extract
  • chocolate for shaving

Directions :

  1. Prepare your strawberries by cutting a deep x into them starting at the tip, but be careful not to go too far so they stay together as one piece.
  2. In a mixing bowl beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and almond extract until creamy.
  3. Carefully pipe or spoon into the strawberries.
  4. Top with shaved chocolate
