I had a group of girls from church over last weekend, and I wanted to make something fresh-tasting, but still really yummy and fun. I thought about utilizing fresh strawberries, and my mind immediately went to cheesecake. But I wanted to do finger foods, and I thought- hey, what if I stuff strawberries with cheesecake? I totally thought I was making this up, you guys, and I guess I technically did, but about a zillion other people have also made it up before me on Pinterest. LOL- oh well! Here’s how to make these delicious, but super easy poppable desserts.
2 (16oz) package of strawberries (or more… you’ll want more), hulled
2 (8oz) packages of cream cheese
1 can (12 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 lemon, juiced
1 tsp vanilla
1 sleeve graham crackers, crushed
Start out by hulling your strawberries (aka taking off the tops and hollowing them out a bit) with a huller or a knife. I used a knife. Cut the very tip of the strawberry off, as well. This allows them to stand up straight on your platter.
Then, mix all remaining ingredients, except graham crackers, in a bowl and beat over medium speed until thoroughly mixed.
Put the cheesecake filling into a pastry bag (or a Ziploc bag with a corner snipped off… works the same!) and fill your strawberries. Once they’re all filled, sprinkle them with the crushed graham crackers.
That’s it. These were so incredibly easy and absolutely delicious- they were also a big crowd-pleaser! I hope you enjoy making (and devouring) them!
