Strawberries Filled With Almond Cream

25 jumbo strawberries

3/4 c heavy whipping cream

3/4 c milk

1 small box vanilla instant pudding

1/2 tsp almond extract

Wash and dry berries. Slice off stem end. Using a sharp paring knife, slice an "x" deep into berries without cutting all the way down. Beat heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form. In a separate bowl, combine milk and pudding. Beat for 2 minutes. Add almond extract and whipped cream. Fit a pastry bag with a #10 or #12 round tip (depending on the size of berries). Fill pastry bag with pudding mixture. Pipe pudding into strawberries, spreading petals open with fingers to allow more cream to fit.
