Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
Need dessert? Don’t want to bake? I’ve got you covered with a family fun dessert. These cheesecake stuffed strawberries are a delicious way to involve the kids in your dessert making activities. They are easy! They are scrumptious! And the only difficulty is making sure they actually arrive to the party and aren’t eaten ahead of time (wink). Okay, maybe that’s my problem…haha.
Imagine a platter filled with these red, white and blued stuffed strawberries! They are a perfect addition and finishing touch to gatherings, picnics and celebrations. They are a deliciously decorative dessert for Memorial Day, Flag Day, 4th of July and Labor Day festivities as well.
Here is the recipe to whip, fill and serve…
- 12 strawberries
- 12 blueberries
- ½ cup cream cheese
- ¼ cup confectioner’s sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Wash the strawberries and the blueberries.
Cut off the greens of the strawberries to create a flat edge. Set the strawberries on that flat edge.
Using a sharp knife cut into each strawberry on four sides, at a slant, to remove the top and hollow the center.
Mix the cream cheese, confectioner’s sugar and vanilla together with an electric mixer.
Place the cheesecake-flavored cream cheese into a quart sized snap and seal bag. Clip one corner. Pipe the mixture into each strawberry to fill it. Place a blueberry on top.
Kids and knives: If you you have younger children, try using a plastic knife for the cutting activities. They will still need supervision and guidance, but are a safer alternative for younger chefs.
