Sweet Saturday....

I proclaim today Sweet Saturday, which really means I found an amazing recipe while searching the internet.  I humbly thank who may have got this recipe from

Cheesecake Strawberries

Doesn't that picture just make you want to dive right into summer.  This is seriously a perfect picnic treat.  I'm thinking Memorial Day, which means I'll be making them today!  Also a great idea for the 4th of July and I wonder how that would taste with a blueberry on top.  You know, to stand for red white and blue? 

What I'm really thinking is that with 4 kids, I'm going to need alot of strawberries!

Ok, here we go....

Ingredients:-1 lb large strawberries
-8 oz. cream cheese, softened (can use 1/3 less fat)
-3-4 tbsp powdered sugar (4 tbsp for a sweeter filling)
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-graham cracker crumbs

1. Rinse strawberries and cut around the top of the strawberry. Remove the top and clean out with a paring knife, if necessary (some may already be hollow inside). Prep all strawberries and set aside.
2. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Add cream cheese mix to a piping bag or ziploc with the corner snipped off. Fill strawberries with cheesecake mixture. Once strawberries are filled, dip the top in graham cracker crumbs. If not serving immediately, refrigerate until serving.

Could that be any easier?  I don't think so which means you have NO excuse to make this great treat for the holidays!!

So, one with your strawberries:)

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!!!!!
