recipe-round-up1.jpg

Its Recipe Roundup Time and this month’s Roundup is Dessert!!  YUMMY!  I rounded up two recipes to share with you all:

Strawberries with Cream Cheese Filling 

Filled Strawberries With Cream Cheese

 These pretty strawberries are cut to resemble flower petals then stuffed with sweetened cream cheese.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 32 fresh whole strawberries, large
  • 11 to 12 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 tablespoons semisweet or milk chocolate, grated

PREPARATION:

Cut a thin slice from the stem end of each strawberry, allowing the berries to stand upright on flattened end. Place berries, cut side down, on a serving platter. Cut each berry carefully into 4 wedges, cutting almost to, but not through, bottoms. Fan wedges just slightly, taking care not to break; set berries aside.In a mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar, and almond extract until light and fluffy. Gently fold in grated chocolate. Using a teaspoon or decorating bag with decorative tip, fill the strawberries. If desired, sprinkle with a little more grated chocolate. Cover and chill until ready to serve.  Makes about 32 filled strawberries.
