Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

So, A-Tooch hasn’t quite caught on to the Pinterest trend. After finding this recipe through the Pinterest transom, though, she may be a convert.

It’s nearly strawberry season (but, clearly, not yet, as demonstrated by the not-too-ripe berries I used in this recipe). To get in the mood, I whipped up this decadent and really simple dessert.

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
(adapted from Nutmeg Nanny)

1 box/pound large strawberries
8 oz. light cream cheese (don’t skimp and buy store brand, you NEED the real thing)
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup crushed graham cracker crumbs

Rinse the strawberries, cut off the tops and core out the center of each with a pairing knife. (Yes, this is very time consuming.) In a bowl, mix the cream cheese, vanilla and sugar. Place the mixture in a pastry bag or sandwich bag with the top cut off and pipe the filling into each strawberry. Dip the top in the graham cracker crumbs. Place on a baking sheet and slide into your refrigerator. Enjoy!

So, I wasn’t really on the ball with this one and couldn’t get my strawberries to stand upright. It didn’t seem to matter that they were chillen’ on the baking sheet, though. Nothing was dripping out and most importantly, they tasted the same :)
