Ingredients

Cream Cheese Filling

  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Mochi

  • 2 3/4 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar

Mochi

  1. For mochi, bring water to boil in a large saucepan.
  2. Stir in sugar and blend until dissolved, then reduce heat to medium low.
  3. Using about 1/4 cup mochiko at a time, add to water/sugar mixture.

  8. Pull off a small piece (about 2 Tbsp) of mochi dough. Roll into a ball and flatten.
  9. Place about 1/2 tsp. each of cream cheese filling and strawberry preserves in the center of the dough, then fold and pinch edges to seal.
