Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries Recipe

I just adore these two-bite cheesecake stuffed strawberries. Luscious ripe strawberries are filled with sweetened cream cheese and topped with toasted almonds.  The mixture of tastes and textures is heavenly.

I hadn’t made these gems in a while, so I added them to a tray of truffle brownies for my book club for a delicious pop of color.  These beautiful, elegant stuffed strawberries are perfect for any gathering—for a girls night out,  a cocktail nibble or even part of a lovely brunch spread. They are fantastic!!!

Tips for Making These Simple, Elegant Stuffed Strawberries

  • Hunt down the best, most fragrant berries you can find. These just won’t taste the same if your berries aren’t top notch. The process is very simple.
  • To prep the strawberries, take a small paring knife to cleanly cut off the stem end. The same knife or a small melon baller can be used to remove some of the strawberry flesh to create space for the cheesecake mixture.
  • Also cut off the tip end of the berry, creating a flat side so the berries stand upright.
  • Cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla are whipped together till smooth, then I use a zip-lock bag with a snipped-off corner to pipe this cheesecake mixture into the cored out berries.
  • Top with toasted sliced almonds or even mini chocolate chips!

My book club loved this cheesecake stuffed strawberries recipe—I know you will, too.

  1. Whip cream cheese, vanilla and powdered sugar till fluffy. Put mixture into a quart ziplock bag and cut off one corner to allow for piping.
