Patriotic Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
- 2 lbs fresh strawberries washed
- 1 oz package cream cheese softened to room temperature
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Sprinkles red, white and blue colors
- Slice off the stems of the strawberries so that they are able to sit flat with the “stem” side facing down.
- On the opposite end of the strawberry, cut an X from the tip through part of the base, but do not slice all the way through or your strawberries will fall apart. Repeat with the remaining strawberries and set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth.
- Add the powdered sugar, cream and vanilla to the cream cheese and beat until well combined.
- Fill a pastry bag or ziploc bag with the end cut off and pipe the cream cheese filling into each sliced strawberry.
- Top each strawberry with sprinkles and chill in the refrigerator for one hour or until ready to serve. Enjoy!
