Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries


I could not believe how delicious these turned out.  You know you have a winner when you have a crowd of hungry people hovering around you as you are filling the strawberries offering to "taste".  I'm pretty sure my little brother squirted the filling straight into his mouth from the bag...

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries





Ingredients:

1 lb large strawberries
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 - 1/2 cup powdered sugar (depending on how sweet you want it)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 – 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs

Instructions:
1. Rinse strawberries and cut around the top of the strawberry.

Remove the top and clean out with a paring knife, *I used a potato peeler and it worked awesomely! Slice off a tiny bit from the bottoms so the strawberries will stand up on their own. Prep all of the 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 the strawberries with cheesecake mixture.
3. Once strawberries are filled, sprinkle or dip the tops with graham cracker crumbs.

If not serving immediately, keep strawberries, filing and crumbs seperate until ready to serve.  Be sure to kee the strawberries and filling refrigerated until serving.
