Red, White, and Blue Berries

Red, White, and Blue Berries
Taken from
These cheesecake stuffed berries are perfect for the 4th of July or any other time in my opinion!

About 24 strawberries
16 oz cream cheese (softened)
1 cup confectioner's sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 pint blueberries

1. Rinse and dry strawberries and blueberries. Using a melon baller, 1/4 tsp scoop, or a small cookie scoop, hull out the inside of the strawberry. Be sure not to remove too much of the insides or the sides will be too thin to keep its form. Pat inside dry.

2. Combine cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat together until well combined and fluffy.

3. Using your preferred tip, fill cheesecake filling into a pastry bag. Place tip inside in the strawberry and fill.

4. Place one blueberry on the top of the cheesecake filled strawberry to have all the wonderful colors of the 4th of July! You can leave out the blueberry and enjoy it plain. You can also add any topping you love, crushed nilla wafers, crushed graham crackers, crushed toasted almonds or other nuts, crushed Oreos, or anything else you like!
