My husband and I created these delicious strawberries for a Valentine's dinner we hosted several years ago. They've been a favorite of ours for many years. They are simple to make for any romantic dinner.

  • Leaving the stem end in tact, cut off the tip of each strawberry, and carefully remove the core using a small, thin knife. Stand strawberries upright (stem end down), and slice through the tip toward the stem. Do not cut completely through. Repeat, slicing a total of 4 times. Each strawberry will have 8 sections. Roll the strawberries in the sugar.

  • Gently open each strawberry and fill each with the cheese mixture, using a circular motion. Arrange strawberry roses on a platter, and sprinkle with lemon zest.

Cooks Note

The roses are easier to form if strawberries are at cool room temperature when filling.
