Note: If you do not want extra filling left over, use the right side of the ingredients. I use the first set of measurement because I like to use the left overs to make an actual cheesecake. Want a delicious recipe for New York Style Cheesecake? Check out this hub!

Instructions

  1. Wash all your strawberries and pull off the green leaves. Set them aside for later.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, mix cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Blend in milk and then mix in the eggs one at a time. Finally, mix in the sour cream and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Take your strawberries and carve out the inside. I use either a small knife or an old fashioned potato peeler. (While you do this, stick your filling in either the freezer of refrigerator.)
  4. Fill all your strawberries with the cheesecake filling. I like to put mine in the freezer for about 5-10 minutes, just to get the filling a little hard before I do the crust.
  5. Put your butter in the microwave for about 20 seconds. While it's melting, take your graham crackers and crush them up into a small bowl.
  6. One at a time dip the ends of your strawberries into the melted butter and then into the graham cracker crumbs.
  7. Stick them in the fridge until you're ready to them. If you're ready now, than enjoy!

Note: Don't have the time to make the cheesecake filling? Just use cream cheese frosting. It tastes just as yummy and will help save on time as well!

      If you try it, I'd definitelty recommend putting the filling in the fridge/freezer while carving out the strawberries. (I just noticed I missed that part.) And it is great for parties, especially if there are kids! I know as a parent sugar highs aren't fun and this is a fun, tasty alternative to cakes and frosting.(: I hope you like them!

      Interesting. I've never seen this before and will definitely try it out. Would be especially good for a potluck party where people don't want a huge piece of cake.
