Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

I've been slightly obsessed with strawberries lately so when I came across this recipe on Pinterest the other day and I had to try it. It didn't requie many ingredients and was pretty sure I had almost everything I needed. I took the recipe and down sized it a little (since I would be the only one eating these I didn't want to make a lot )  I didn't quite have everything I needed but I made it work.

The recipe calls for:
- 1 lb of large strawberries
- 8 oz. cream cheese, softened 
- 3-4 tbsp powdered sugar
- 1tsp vanilla extract
- graham cracker crumble

I didn't have powered sugar or graham crackers but I used regular sugar and cinnamon to sprinkle on top. I used hardly any sugar (just a pinch) I try to stay away from adding extra sugar whenever possible and you don't really need it in these.

Clean strawberries and cut around the top to hollow out the inside. Prep all strawberries and set aside.

In a bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla until creamy. Put cream cheese mix into a ziploc bag and snip corner. Fill strawberries with cheesecake mix ( I just used a spoon to fill them). Once filled, dip the top in the graham cracker crumble and serve.

I preferred them refrigerated for an hour or so first. Also I used cinnamon instead of graham cracker crumble which I wasn't that fond of. Graham cracker would have been way better.

And voila!!
There you have it! Cheesecake stuffed strawberries.
