Cheesecake Filled Strawberries

I found this image and recipe on pinterest here.


It looked like a great idea, but after work, I didn't have time to get this done, so I modified the recipe. So here is my version of Strawberry Cheesecake Bites.

Strawberries - washed, dried and the tops removed
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 (I didn't measure and I ground up in my mini food processor)

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.

Spread the graham cracker crumbs in a pan. You could use anything here, a plate, waxed paper, bowl, etc.

Pipe a dollop (like that technical term) of the cream cheese mixture onto the graham cracker crumbs and press a strawberry, cut side down, into the cream cheese. Transfer to a plate and immediately refrigerate so the cream cheese firms up.

These were so easy to make, and was so simple on a busy work night that I didn't take an after photo. Plus, they were eaten in an instant! But here they are, ready to be transferred to a plate and tossed into the refrigerator.
