Try this sweet sandwich as a weekend treat, or a rich way to start off the morning.

Ingredients:

6 ounces light Cream Cheese, softened (3/4 of an 8 ounce package)
2 tablespoons frozen Orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 tablespoon Honey
1/3 cup chopped toasted Walnuts
1 preheated Pound Cake loaf (10 3/4 to 12 ounces), thawed if frozen
2 pint baskets fresh California Strawberries, stemmed
1/2 cup whipping Cream, whipped and lightly sweetened

Preparation:

1. In a small bowl beat cheese, orange juice concentrate and honey to blend thoroughly; mix in walnuts.
2. Cut cake into 12 equal slices. Slice 1 basket of the strawberries. Spread 4 slices of cake, on one side, with some of the cheese mixture. Top with half of strawberry slices, with more cheese mixture; place on first 4 cake slices. Cover with remaining sliced strawberries. Spread remaining cake slices, on one side, with remaining cheese mixture; place cheese sides down on sandwiches.
3. Cut diagonally into halves; skewer each with a sandwich pick. Serve sandwiches with remaining strawberries, halved, dividing equally. Dollop with whipped cream; garnish with mint sprigs, if desired. Yield: 4 servings.
