Cheesecake Strawberries

As you already know, I love small things - miniature versions of bigger products. Because of this, it should come as no surprise that a dish like cheesecake-stuffed strawberries drew me in. A one-sbite dessert! How cute! It turned out there was more to these than meets the eye. Not only are they cute, but they are also delicious. 
The recipe is so simple, so easy but the product makes it look like much more effort went into the creation.  

1 lb large strawberries
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
3-4 tbsp powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
graham cracker crumbs

Rinse strawberries and cut around the top of the strawberry. Remove the tops and clean out with a paring knife.

Beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Pour cream cheese mix into a piping bag or ziploc with the corner snipped off.

Fill strawberries with cheesecake mixture. Once strawberries are filled, dip the top in graham cracker crumbs.

If not serving immediately, refrigerate until serving.

For extra yum, you can dip the strawberries in chocolate after they have been filled.

If any of you have recipe requests or suggestions, please comment! I'm eager to hear from you all!

Also! A great tip for transportation - use an egg carton! The strawberries fit perfectly.
