Strawberry Bruchetta

This is an old Pampered Chef recipe, and it is great for brunches or bite-sized dessert parties.

1 loaf thinly sliced french baguette
2 T melted butter
Place bread slices on cookie sheet and brush with melted butter. Bake at 350 until golden brown (about 5 min or so)
In a mixing bowl, combine the following:
4 oz cream cheese
1 Meyer lemon, zested and juiced
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

In another bowl, slice or chop 1 lb washed and hulled strawberries.

In a non-stick skillet, lightly toast 1 small package blanched slivered almonds.

To assemble, place thin layer of cream cheese mixture on toasted bread, add strawberries, and sprinkle almonds. To garnish, grate white, milk, or dark chocolate over top and dust with powdered sugar.
