Strawberry Cheesecake Bites

If you are looking to satisfy your cheese cake yearnings with fewer calories this is the end of your search. This yummy delight was made for me by Aishwarya and Jai for Mother's Day.
Recipe source:The comfort of cooking
1 lb. fresh strawberries, rinsed and pat dry
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Graham cracker crumbs, optional

Cut off the strawberry stems. Hollow out the strawberry and create a well for the cheese filling
 (You can also do this with a small melon baller). Cut off a small portion of the pointy strawberry tip, so that each strawberry can stand.
Whip cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until fluffy, about 2 minutes on medium speed. Place mixture in a pastry bag and pipe into each strawberry, adding a little extra to the top. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.

When ready to serve sprinkle graham cracker crumbs on top of each stuffed strawberry.

TIP: Don’t make more than 5 hours in advance, or your strawberries will sweat and may become a bit soggy.
