Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

1 pint fresh strawberries
1 (8 0z) package cream cheese
1/2 c powdered sugar
1/2 t vanilla
1/4 t almond extract
Wash strawberries. Cut tops off to make flat bottom. In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and almond extract until smooth. Spoon cream cheese mixture into the corner of a ziploc bag. Wash strawberries. Cut tops off to make flat bottom. Quarter strawberries from tip to stem end without cutting through stem end. Cut corner off ziploc bag. Pipe cream cheese mixture into strawberries. Chill until ready to serve.

*These would be SO cute for a shower or party! There are so many ways you can do these too. You can add orange zest or juice to make a citrus filling, top with shaved or melted chocolate, or my favorite idea...actually make a no-bake cheesecake and then put it in a food processor (or just kitchen aid) and have a ACTUAL cheesecake stuffed strawberry. You really can be creative with whatever you want to do!
