Yum!

Yummy, yummy.

Yuuum!

 

This is actually what stayed in my head after tasting these delicious cheesecake filled strawberries. And I think that it pretty much sums up what this whole experience was about… just PURE YUM!

You  SO have to try this!

I can assure you that preparing this lovely summer treat is ultra-simple.

All you need is about 2 pounds (1 kg) larger fresh strawberries, 8 ounce package (250 grams) cream cheese (softened), 4 tablespoons powdered sugar (depending on how sweet you want the filling), 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and about 1 ounce (30 grams) graham cracker (or butter cookie) crumbs.

1. To assemble, first rinse the fruit and cut around the top of each strawberry.

2. Remove the top and clean out inside with a paring knife.

If you want to stand your strawberries upright (like in the picture) slice a bit off the bottom.

Don’t they just look cute already?

3. Next, in a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla.

4. Add the cream cheese mixture to a piping bag…

5. … and fill the strawberries.

Aaah!

6. Now pulse the graham crackers (or other cookies of your choice) in the food processor until crumbs form.

7. And sprinkle the crumbs over the filling.

Another alternative is to dip the top in the crumbs. The choice is yours.

For some reason, I can perfectly imagine caramel sauce stepping into the game here. Or is it chocolate sauce? What do you think?

Enjoy!

  1. DELIGHTFUL! Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits and this recipe is just yummy yummy looking! I just ate some strawberries tonight for dessert….I may have to try this one out soon! It will be on my mind until I try it out! I bet drizzling honey on the top would be yummy too.

  2. I immediately made this when I saw the recipe . It was delish ! I even mixed a little vanilla yogurt in with the whipped cream to make it lighter … mmmm

  3. I don’t have access to all of the ingredients needed while I’m in South Korea but once I head back to the States and strawberries are in season, I will definitely be making these!

    You mentioned pairing them with chocolate sauce. Why not dip the strawberries in chocolate first, letting them set up in the fridge before adding the cheesecake filling?! Sounds delish to me!

  5. What a fast and delicious desert. My kids and I was in heaven on yesterday. We ate the strawberries up in a matter of minutes. I just altered the powered sugar to my taste. I added about 8 tablespoons of powered sugar which is about 1/2 cup. It was awesome. Great recipe. I have already shared with friends. Thanks

  6. Definitely need to try these, they look so good. They would be great for a bridal shower or even for a wedding for a filler on the cookie table to add some color. Thanks

  7. This fb page is using some of your recipes and pictures as theirs. You might want to report them. I’m going to report them but since the images belong to you, you might want to as well.

  8. Made this today. Absolutely delish! I added the berry tips (cut off to make the berries sit flat) to the cream cheese mixture for added sweetness. I also used 5 tbls confectioners sugar and 2 tsps vanilla.
