Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

from Nutmeg Nanny

1 lb large strawberries (smaller works too, just easier with larger)
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese (light is fine), softened
3-4 TBS powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract (or almond extract, lemon etc)
graham cracker crumbs

1.  Rinse strawberries and cut the tops off.  Use a paring knife if necessary to clean out the inside.  (Most were cleaned out already on mine).  If you want the strawberries to stand upright trim a little off the bottom.  Set strawberries aside.

2.  Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla together until smooth and well combined.  Place in a piping bag.  Fill strawberries.  Dip in graham cracker crumbs.

Store in fridge. Best the first or second day filled.
**You could also drizzle or dip strawberries in chocolate.
