Stuffed Strawberries
  • Blue cheese (1/3 cup)
  • 1/2 tsp. grated fresh lemon peel
  • 2 Tbsp. confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves
  • 12 large strawberries with stems attached, rinse and pat dry
  1. Place blue cheese in a small bowl and add 1/2 tsp. lemon peel, sugar and thyme. Mix until smooth, using a spatula. Set aside.
  2. Slice a thin piece off the bottom of each berry so they lie flat. Cut the berries in half and remove 1/3 off the top of the side facing up. Finely chop up the centers and pieces cut from the bottom. Fold half of the chopped strawberries into the cheese mixture. Stir until combined.
  3. Stuff the strawberries with the blue cheese mixture. Decorate with remaining chopped berry pieces. Serve immediately.
