Cheesecake stuffed strawberries are a great twist on a classic sweet treat. The recipe can be simple or a bit more complicated, all depending on how much time you have! Feel free to make your own cheesecake filling with cream cheese, sour cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract; or, save some time and simply use pre-made cheesecake filling for a speedier process. Besides your cheesecake filling, you only need fresh strawberries and finely crushed graham crackers. This simple cheesecake stuffed strawberries recipe is quickly becoming our go-to for a special treat!
lbs fresh strawberries
container of cheesecake filling
cups finely crushed graham crackers
Ingredients for Optional Homemade Cheesecake Filling
oz cream cheese
tsp sour cream
cups powdered sugar
tsp vanilla extract
Wash and dry strawberries. Remove the stems with a straw and use a spoon to create a small hole in the strawberries–this is where the cheesecake will go. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese and sour cream until it’s fluffy. Add the vanilla and powdered sugar. Beat until smooth and combined. (You can also use ready-made cheesecake mixture.)
Place this cheesecake mixture into a piping bag or plastic bag with the corner cut off. Squeeze a little bit of the mixture into each strawberry, and place the strawberries on a wax-paper-lined baking sheet when done. Place crushed graham crackers in a bowl.
Dip the part of the strawberry with cheesecake with crushed graham crackers.
Place the strawberries back in the fridge until ready to eat.
