strawberry cheesecake minis...

Need a last-minute dessert that requires no baking? Here you go...


These are what I am bringing to our friends' house for a Memorial Day bbq...aren't they adorable? And soooo easy to boot!

Just grab some strawberries, a tub of Philadelphia Cheesecake Filling (found near the cream cheese at your grocery store...I'm letting you know this only because I searched for 20 minutes before it finally dawned on me that it may be near the other cheese products) and some graham cracker crumbs.

I cut the bottoms of the strawberries off so that they would sit easily on a tray and I hulled the centers. Then I filled a plastic bag with the filling, cut off a bottom corner of the bag and used it to squeeze the filling into the strawberry. Finally, I sprinkled some of the graham cracker crumbs over the top. Um...yum.

The only thing I may change about what I did here is that next time I may dip the cut strawberry into the crumbs instead of sprinkling them on top. I sprinkled a little too much over some of the minis and the crumbs changed the color of the filling to this weird yellow. They tasted fantastic but they didn't look perfect...

Then I made this little banner to accompany these little desserts...


Cute little patriotic set-up, don't you think?


And yummy, too!

  1. Everything you do is just too cute! I love the idea of using the Philadelphia filling ... I have two tubs of it in the fridge and I have no idea what to do with it! And your little stars and banner just complete the cuteness!
