  • Slice off the stem end of each strawberry. Use a knife to scoop out a little bit of each berry to make a hole in the center. Set aside.
  • Combine cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in a small bowl.
  • Fill each strawberry with the mixture, mounding a bit of the mixture on the top of the strawberry.
  • Garnish with mint and serve.

  1. Fabulous little treats! I used a narrow potato/veggie peeler to hollow out the strawberries and then piped the filling in using a zip-top bag. Both of these tricks helped to make the job easier. It still took a bit of time, but the ooh and ahh results were worth every minute. I made these for a school retirement party and every berry was spoken for. Thanks Vino Girl!
  2. These are so wonderful:) great for summertime as they are so much lighter than regular cheesecake and finger food too:)great for any occasion, always well received:) thanks-PeggyLynn
  3. Easy, tasty and impressive. Thank-you for this recipe. I'll be making these a lot in the future.
  4. They were e fantastic! I made them for mothers day and got rave reviews! Made no changes to the recipe and it was perfect as is.
  5. Amazing :) they were cute & easy, i was very proud of them! I added milk chocolate chips to the top of some of them and refrigerated them in egg cartons so they stood upright. Thanks a lot, i won't forget this recipe!


My husband and I married straight out of college in July of 1992. I work as the Assistant Manager at a wine shop which allows me to drink on the job! (OK, not that much, but it's still a fun job...) Besides helping customers choose wine they will like (and also help with food and wine pairings for their menus), I also get to help with the catering end of the business, so I get to spend a fair amount of time in the kitchen making fun appetizers and beautiful food displays. I also work part-time at the fromagerie next door. So yeah - that means I eat on the job, too. :^D We live on several peaceful wooded acres on a cute little river in rural NE Wisconsin, with a cranky old-lady Burmese and whatever stray outdoor cats that have decided to adopt us on any given day. The cute puppy in the picture is Jake, our Elhew-bred English Pointer that we brought home on Easter weekend 2007. I've also got 2 painted turtles named Dennis and Fuzz, and a bunch of fish (koi and goldfish, along with the guppies & swordtails in the turtle tank). I USUALLY eat and cook healthy, but I rarely pass up dessert, either. I do not eat red meat, and try to limit other animal products, too. I love to bake, although I seem to collect a lot of scone and biscotti recipes which I NEVER get around to making. I bake and eat A LOT of cookies and muffins... I almost always reduce the sugar by 1/4 and use whole wheat pastry flour for at least part of the flour. Those two changes do so much to make recipes healthier without compromising taste. I try to reduce fat whenever I can, too, but while I want to eat healthy, I still want to ENJOY what I eat!!! I seem to give a lot of 4 and 5 star reviews here - I seem to have a pretty good sense of what I like by looking at a recipe before I try it. Thank you to anyone that tries my recipes in return, or photographs them.
