Cream Cheese Stuffed Strawberries

25 Mar

My friend Stacia talked me into trying something else new. 🙂 These were a little less weird than the bacon cupcakes, though! She found something on pinterest called Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries. They were SO cute. I just had to try them out. They look a little fancy, so I was surprised at how easy they were.

The only thing is, I can’t exactly call them “cheesecake” stuffed. That makes me think of the real deal, bake in the oven, cool overnight cheesecake that was the very first dessert I  posted in this blog. It was SOOOO good and rich. These strawberries are delicious, but the filling is not real cheesecake. It’s more of a sweetened, whipped cream cheese. Not the same richness or texture as real cheesecake. So I’m changing the name to Cream Cheese Stuffed Strawberries. Whatever you want to call them, here’s all you have to do:

Trim off the top and hollow out the inside of a  pound of strawberries.

Like the recipe suggested, I also trimmed off just a small piece of the bottom of the strawberries, so that they would stand up straight. You don’t have to take much off of the bottom, just enough to give it a flat surface.

Then mix together your filling: 8 ounces of cream cheese (softened), 4 Tbsp. of powdered sugar, and 1 tsp of vanilla extract. That’s it! Mix those together and then pipe into the strawberries. (Or, if you don’t have piping bags you could use a small spoon. A piping bag just makes it a lot easier.)

Last step: Dip them in graham cracker crumbs. Just to look all nice and pretty. 🙂

They can be stored in the fridge for a couple of days!

Random Thought of the Day: I may never play the real version of Scrabble again. I can actually beat my husband on the Words with Friends version. 🙂
