Step 1

In bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice with portable mixer, until smooth. Cover and refrigerate (can be made ahead and refrigerated, but let soften before piping).

Clean strawberries; remove hulls. Place on paper towel lined tray, hulled end down. With a sharp knife, cut an X through the top of each berry (not all the way through). Pull sections gently apart.

Spoon filling into pastry bag (can use a 1/2" star tip). Pipe a heaping teaspoon in center of each berry. Berries can be filled two hours before serving.

Serving options:
--Top with a blueberry
--Place in paper petit four cups
--Place on tray and lightly spinkle with powdered sugar
