1 c. ground blanched almonds
1 tsp. almond extract

In large bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, coconut, 1/3 cup gelatin, almonds, extract, and enough red food coloring to tint mixture a strawberry shade. Chill 1 hour or until firm enough to handle. Using about 1/2 tablespoon for each, form into strawberry shapes. Sprinkle remaining gelatin onto wax paper. Roll each strawberry in gelatin to coat. Place on wax paper-lined baking sheets; chill.
In small bowl, combine sugar, cream and green food coloring. Using pastry bag with open star tip, pipe small amount on each strawberry. Store covered at room temperature or in refrigerator. Makes about 60.
Tip: Green tube decorator icing can be used to make strawberry "stems". Omit confectioners' sugar, cream and green food coloring, if not making stems.
