I've made these before - I brought them to Thanksgiving this past year. However, I cursed the little strawberries the whole time I was making them. I didn't have a melon-baller. I had to carve out each individual strawberry with a knife.... and that took ages. We received a gift card a month later at Christmas for Bed, Bath & Beyond and guess what item I headed straight towards? Yep. The melon-baller. And we've been best friends ever since.
Strawberry Cheesecake Bites
1 pound large strawberries
8oz. block cream cheese – soft
3 – 4 tablespoons powdered sugar (depends on how sweet you want the filling)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or use almond, lemon, etc. )
Graham cracker crumbs
Rinse strawberries and hull out the middle of the strawberries with a melon-baller. Slice a bottom out of your strawberries so they can stand up. One strawberries are prepped set aside.
Combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla with a mixer or by hand. Add cream cheese mix to piping bag and fill strawberries. Once strawberries are filled, drizzle your graham cracker crumbs over the little lovers. Devour.
