Cheesecake stuffed Strawberries

I saw this recipe for the first time on www.nutmegnanny.com and fell in love. Trying new foods is another adventure for me and my stomach. I must try.

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries:

1 pound large strawberries

8oz. block cream cheese – soft

3 – 4 tablespoons powdered sugar (depends on how sweet you want the filling)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or use almond, lemon, etc. )

Graham cracker crumbs

Instructions:

Rinse strawberries and cut around the top of the strawberry.  Remove the top and clean out inside with a paring knife if necessary.  I found most of the strawberries already had a nice hollow center so that step was not necessary. If you want to stand your strawberries upright (like in the picture) slice a bit off the bottom. One strawberries are prepped set aside.

Combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla with a mixer or by hand. Add cream cheese mix to piping bag and fill strawberries.  Once strawberries are filled dip the top in graham cracker crumbs.  Devour and fall in love.

You could also drizzle or dip strawberries in chocolate if desired.
