Who out there loves strawberries? How about dipped in whipped cream?
Covered in chocolate anyone?
Maybe a dash of black pepper sprinkled on them? (That's a real trick! Try it!)
Well the most pinned recipe on all of Pinterest is…
Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries!!!
We've got the recipe right here:
-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
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.
And that's it!
Take 'em out the fridge and dig in!
It's a healthier way to get your cheesecake fix!
