I made these for a Memorial Day picnic and they were a huge hit. They all disappeared before the hamburgers came off the grill (they were suppose to be for dessert). Next time, I will double the recipe.
I made these twice on the same day. First, I used fat free cream cheese and lemon extract, lemon juice and lemon zest. I cut the berries in half, put a dollop of the filling and dipped them in crushed graham crackers. The second time, I used regular cream cheese with the lemon and dipped them in a graham cracker crust crumb mixture made with sugar and some melted butter. My family loved them. We sat around the table filling our own strawberries and dipping them. A detour with raspberries was not quite so successful. Cheesecake and strawberries belong together. These went fast and will probably be part of the Easter dessert menu. Thanks
These were so easy to put together, make a stunning presentation and taste great to boot! How do you beat that? I used a 12 oz container of soft cream cheese, 6tbsp of powdered sugar, 1 tsp of vanilla. I used a grapefruit spoon to core the berries and placed them in a mini muffin tin to fill. Topped some with ground chocolate, some with graham cracker crumbs and some with chopped toasted pecans because those were the things I had on hand. Served them on a deviled egg platter, which kept therm from moving around too much! Made 18, using big berries.
I am thinking splitting them into halves, add some homemade whipping cream with sugar
Made these with my mom today! Someone at her work made them and she wanted to do make them. Only change was 3/4 cup sugar and no nuts. I think it needed the crunch of the nuts so I will try it next time. Or dip them in chocolate and then put cream cheese. Everyone still loved them.
These were a hit! I used a little extra sugar because the cheesecake was too bland, I thought. I dipped the tops in an assortment of regular graham cracker crumbs, cinnamon graham cracker crumbs, ground almonds, mini chocolate chips, and sprinkles for the kids. Will try drizzling chocolate on next time. Great recipe, Linda.
Everyone loved it! I added more sugar after reading the reviews. I rolled them in crushed graham crackers and mini chocolate chips.
Strawberries are in season right now in NJ and this was an outstanding way to use them. I could eat these yummy little treats every day!
Made these for my grandtwins 1st birthday party - everyone loved them including the birthday boy & girl. Thanks for posting Linda!
Yum! I crushed up some graham crackers to mix with the almonds, and these were fabulous! Great recipe!
