Cheyenne's Story

Got this recipe from a Facebook friend and just had to share. Oh so cute and my kiddo's just love them. Fun and festive and so easy that even my 7 year old boys help me make them.


1 lb
large strawberries
1 pkg
(8 ounce) cream cheese, softened
3-4 Tbsp
powdered sugar (or sugar substitute - to taste)
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1. Rinse strawberries and cut around the top of the strawberry. Remove the top, (enough for a hat). Clean out the whole strawberry with a paring knife, if necessary (some of them are hollow already. Prep all of the 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 the strawberries with cheesecake mixture.
3. Once strawberries are filled, top with the 'hats.' Decorate according to photo.
4. If not serving immediately, refrigerate until serving.

    Are the eyes black sesame seeds? Is that your own picture?

    I used raisins. I just cut them in half, so they would be smaller. The kids LOVED them!
