CHEESECAKE STUFFED STRAWBERRIES
It was my husband’s birthday last week so I threw a little dessert party that evening for a few but since the hubby had no clue I couldn’t make any of the goodies! Thank goodness my sister-in-law came across this recipe, it was EASY, YUMMY & best of all partially healthy!
Cheesecake filled strawberries … a great fast dessert to bring to a summer picnic, whip up for a Christmas party or sweeten up your Valentine’s day!
I would make one addition to this recipe and cut the bottoms of the strawberries slightly so they can sit on their own but not cut through…then dip them in melted chocolate & let them chill then follow the recipe…. Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Filled Strawberries …. HEAVEN!!!Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
-1 lb large strawberries
-8 oz. cream cheese, softened (can use 1/3 less fat)
-3-4 tbsp powdered sugar (4 tbsp for a sweeter filling)
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-graham cracker crumbs Directions:
1. Rinse strawberries and cut around the top of the strawberry. Remove the top and clean out with a paring knife, if necessary (some may already be hollow inside). Prep all strawberries and set aside.
2. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Add cream cheese mix to a piping bag or ziploc with the corner snipped off. Fill strawberries with cheesecake mixture. Once strawberries are filled, dip the top in graham cracker crumbs. If not serving immediately, refrigerate until serving.
Happy Eating…I’ll see you at the gym!
