Wash strawberries. Cut stem end off to lay flat. Cut opposite end into quarters, don't cut all the way through. Set aside.
In a small bowl combine cream cheese, sour cream , powdered sugar, lemon juice and extracts. Beat on medium speed of mixer until fluffy. Spoon mixture into pastry bag with a star tip. Squeeze the mixture into the middle of the strawberry. Repeat. Chill for at least one hour.
