Cheesecake Strawberries Gluten Free

Cheesecake filled strawberries are a super fast, fun way of serving dessert to a lot of people, without needing any utensils or plates!  They are perfect for a BBQ or anytime!  I made them last week for a Graduation party (when I remembered less than 2 hours before the party that it was a potluck), and they were gone in minutes.  I think all told it took 45 minutes to make all 4 lbs, including a quick trip to the store!

Plus, you can make them gluten free or not, or both!  Did I mention my 3 year old did most of the work?

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Yield: approx 60 Strawberries | Serves: 20

Ingredients

  • 4 lbs Strawberries (bigger berries are better)
  • 3 lbs cream cheese
  • 1.5 to 2 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 4 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 4 Graham Cracker Rectangles

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Strawberries
  2. Cut off tops and hollow out clean strawberries, almost all the way to the bottom, making sure to leave a complete shell.
  3. 4 lbs will make just over one large cookie sheet (giving you a couple of tasters!)
  4. Crush graham crackers (I just threw them in a ziplock and let my 3 year old go to town with a rolling pin)
  5. Place hollowed out strawberries in fridge to cool down while making the cheesecake filling.
  6. Prepare the Cheesecake
  7. This is a no bake Cheesecake Recipe I got from Cathy King when I was in High School, It's simple fast and easy!
  8. Put 3 lbs cream cheese in mixer (or bowl if using hand mixer), and add 4 tsp vanilla
  9. Mix powdered sugar in 1/4 cup at a time until smooth, and flavor you like (I like mine a little less sweet, so use less sugar)
  10. Using a pastry bag (or a ziplock with the corner cut off) put about 1/4 the cheesecake filling and fill strawberries.
  11. Repeat until strawberries all strawberries are filled.
  12. Dip tops of strawberries in crushed graham crackers (my 3 year old did this part, while I was filling them)
  13. Refrigerate until ready to serve
  14. Gluten Free
  15. To make this recipe Gluten Free, simply skip dipping the strawberries in the graham crackers.
  16. Note:
  17. I had medium strawberries, and had about 1/8 cup filling left over.
  18. If you are using bigger strawberries, increase your recipe by 1 lb cream cheese, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla.
  19. No need to increase the graham crackers, there were plenty left over!
