Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

If you follow some of the same board I do on Pinterest, chances are Sugar Derby’s Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries popped up on your feed. They popped up in mine a couple times, last week. As soon as I saw them I knew I had to make them AND since I was already thinking of making a strawberry centered dessert for Easter, it was really easy to switch from gluten free strawberry shortcake to these tasty treats. Especially, since I could tweak the recipe a bit and make them completely naturally gluten free. Meaning I wouldn’t have to buy any ingredients that normally had gluten in them specifically made to be gluten free. SCORE!

After researching cheesecake stuffed strawberries on the interwebs, I found several different recipes and based this recipe on those. However, I have to give Sugar Derby credit for giving me the idea.

Here’s how I made them…

And, because I stuck and forgot to take pictures as I was doing each step, I drew you some pictures...

Okay, I know this is a lot of steps, but trust me when I tell you it's totally worth it. As your hulling and coring 50 strawberries, know that this is delicious. Plus, as my friend Jeannie says, "Who doesn't like food stuffed inside other food?"

So, I ask you, what is your favorite food stuffed in other food?

oh. my. gosh. these sound insanely delicious!!! My husband is a cheesecake fanatic and I'm pretty sure he would go bananas over these. It seems like it would be pretty hard to care the strawberries - any recommendations on technique?

These sound so amazing, and perfect for bringing in to a work party on Monday because they're bite-sized! Thank you!

@Married in Chicago - I found the easiest way to core the strawberries, was to hull the stop with a paring knife in a circle. Then twist the knife around inside. If you cut on the side of the inside of the strawberry and then twist the knife around it works fairly quickly to remove the insides.
@Lobster - Exactly ;-)

Want! I also want to try these cheesecake wrapped caramel pops I saw on Paula Deen last night. After you cover a caramel square with cheesecake, you can roll the pop in toppings: how good does that sound?!
