My Attempt: Cheesecake Filled Strawberries

I made these during my Spring Break and they were great!

Ingredients:
  • 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 knife, if needed.  Depending on the strawberry it might be hollow enough.
  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.
  3.  Make sure you put them in the fridge if you're not about to eat them!

Optional

  • If you want to add graham crackers to give it that real cheesecake feeling while eating them get HALF or ONE graham cracker.  Put it in a sandwich bag and start crushing it until the pieces are nice and small.  Put the graham crackers onto a saucer and just dip the top of the strawberries into it.  You shouldn't have to worry about the filling falling out so don't be afraid.
