Core strawberries and cut out additional space in the center of the berry (You’ll need a little extra room for the filling!)
Place cream cheese, vanilla and powdered sugar in a bowl and beat together until smooth.
Place filling in a piping bag or a plastic sandwich bag with a corner cut off. Evenly pipe filling into strawberries.
Sprinkle top of filling with chopped almonds. Serve immediately.
Make ahead suggestions: Carve the berries, make the cheesecake filling and prep the topping in advance but wait to pipe and garnish the berries until just before serving. Other topping ideas: Check the post for a complete list, but the options are endless: vanilla wafers, Oreo cookies, Biscoff cookies, etc.
