What’s Up, Hungry People

If one merely utters the word “cheesecake” to me, I go weak in the knees. Truly one of the best desserts around. Combine it with fresh strawberries, and you’ve got a mouthful of amazingness. This recipe has been updated from the 2015 version!

Like my infamous s’more cookies, these strawberry bites have been a staple in my dessert dishes for several years now. I only vaguely remember making them – but I do remember that I had to go out and buy a second package of strawberries because my roommate and I devoured the entire batch we had been making for a cookout before we could even walk out the door. We were late, but it was worth it.

While I’d like to say that the strawberries were plucked fresh from my balcony garden, I unfortunately have not yielded any large enough to use in a dish such as this. They do make for a tasty snack as I sit on my balcony writing this, however.

Hulling Strawberries

Strawberries will even give you natural guidelines as to where you need to trim in order to hull them perfectly. All you need to do is cut the top off where the red transitions into white, and trim the bottom so the strawberry can stand alone. Then use a small knife and trace the blade around the white interior of the strawberry at a 45° angle. And you’ve just hulled a strawberry!

Here’s What You Need

  • Fresh strawberries: The vessel for our creamy cheesecake filling.
  • Fresh blueberries: Adds a pop of color and flavor on top.
  • Cream cheese: Creates the smooth, creamy filling we all love.
  • Lemon juice: Adds a bit of tartness to balance the cream cheese.
  • Vanilla: Infuses a lovely flavor into the cheesecake filling.
  • Graham crackers: Gives a nice crunch and classic cheesecake vibe.

Make the Cheesecake Filling

In a small bowl, blend together the cream cheese, lemon juice, and vanilla until smooth. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag.

Fill the Strawberries

Pipe the cream cheese mixture into each strawberry cavity, overfilling slightly. Let the strawberries chill if you’re not serving right away.

Add the Crunch

Right before serving, dip the top of each cream cheese-filled strawberry into the crushed graham crackers. For an added touch, dab a bit more cheesecake filling on top of each strawberry and place a blueberry on it. Chill for at least one hour before serving.

Tips for Perfect Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

  • Use room temperature cream cheese: This ensures a smoother filling without lumps. Cold cream cheese can make mixing difficult.
  • Piping bag alternative: If you don’t have a piping bag, use a zip-top bag with a corner snipped off. It works just as well!
  • Chilling time: Don’t skip the chilling step. It helps the filling set and makes the strawberries easier to handle.
  • Serving tip: These are best enjoyed the same day they are made. The graham crackers will stay crispy and the strawberries fresh.
  • Strawberry size: Choose medium to large strawberries. They’re easier to hull and fill, and they hold more cheesecake goodness.
