These past couple of weeks have been crazy and stressful. There was a leak in my apartment building and I’ve had to move out for an undetermined amount of time. As I’m sure you can imagine, it has been very annoying.
It also means I am not in my own kitchen. And this one is small.
In addition to all of this, I organized a spa event for work last Thursday of which I planned to do all the baking in my own time. Work stress plus personal stress plus having to bake new recipes for about 30 people? It is such a relief I find peace in baking.
One of the most popular recipes from the spa night were my Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries. Adults loved them, kids adored them and I really enjoyed their simplicity.
What You’ll Need:
- A whole pile of strawberries.
- 1 package of light, plain cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup of powdered, confectioners sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- graham cracker crumbs
What You’ll Do:
In a larger mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until well mixed and creamy. Scoop the cheesecake mix into a Ziploc bag until needed. Just before you’re ready to serve, cut the top off of rinsed strawberriesand hollow if need be. Ensure the strawberries are dry before you fill them. Cut the tip of one corner of the Ziploc bag off, making a tiny hole to pipe out of. Squeeze until the cheesecake fills the strawberry and leaves a nice round top. Fill all of the strawberries then sprinkle them with graham cracker crumbs. Serve chilled.
Using the Ziploc bag as a piping bag can be tricky and requires some practise. But it is a very handy trick to have up your sleeve. Now enjoy these delicious treats!
