Farm Fresh: Stuffed Strawberries a mouth-popper

Thursday, June 13, 2002

By Arlene Burnett, Post-Gazette Staff Writer

Our Farm Fresh recipe today, Stuffed Strawberries, is an easy but elegant way to make use of summer's popular berry. The recipe calls for a liqueur for flavoring but orange or lemon extract or orange juice would work just as well. To make a truly eye-catching presentation, choose larger strawberries.

Stuffed Strawberries

1 pint fresh strawberries
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
Confectioners' sugar to taste (we used about 1/2 cup)
Orange-flavored liqueur such as Grand Marnier, Orange Curacao or Triple Sec

Cut stems off berries to create a flat surface that will allow berries to stand upright. Cut a crisscross slice 3/4 of the way down the opposite end of each berry. Place berries on serving dish.

In a mixer or food processor, beat cream cheese with confectioners' sugar and liqueur. Taste and adjust flavor. Place ingredients in a piping bag with a star tip (a plastic sandwich bag can be used by filling the bag with the cream cheese. Make a tiny cut in the corner of the bag. Use as you would a piping bag). Pipe cream cheese mixture into the center of each berry.
