Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Author: Mosquito Squad of Waukesha County & Milwaukee North Shore

Who doesn’t love strawberries?!?  I like to bring home a fresh basket of berries from the local farmers market for snacking, deserting or a delicious fruit salad.   The best time for strawberries is June, July and August are when they are at their peak.

I’ve got a great recipe for a bite sized treat for your picnics or party.   These are always the talk of the party!

1 pound large strawberries
8oz. block cream cheese – soft
3 – 5 tablespoons powdered sugar (sweeten to taste)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Rinse strawberries and cut around the top of the strawberry.  Next, remove the top and clean out inside with a knife.  Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. Add cream cheese mix to piping bag and fill strawberries.

Optional: dip the top in graham cracker crumbs, or drizzle strawberries with chocolate or top off with a blueberry or raspberry!

Enjoy!

Don’t forget to call Mosquito Squad so that people focus on biting into you strawberries – not the bites they are getting from mosquitoes!
