quart fresh strawberries
container (8 oz) mascarpone cheese
tablespoons powdered sugar
teaspoon almond extract
Using larger strawberries, trim tops and bottoms of strawberries to level. Using small melon baller, scoop out center of each strawberry.
In medium bowl, mix cheese, powdered sugar, milk and extract until smooth. Spoon cheese mixture into small resealable food freezer plastic bag or pastry bag fitted with star tip; seal bag. Cut small hole in bottom corner of plastic bag. Squeeze bag to pipe cheese mixture into strawberries; top with almonds.
For a beautiful presentation, serve on a bed of coconut on a pretty platter or tray.
Look for mascarpone in the gourmet cheese section of your grocery store. It's usually found near the deli cheeses. In a pinch, cream cheese can be used instead.
