First come the flood of strawberries at the grocery store. After a long winter, those rosy little gems are a welcome sight! Then come the tiny baskets of early, sweet berries at the farmer’s market. Finally, if you’re lucky enough to live near a pick-your-own berry farm, there are the flats of fresh, juicy strawberries. It only takes one bite to remind us why wait all winter for these beauties. And it’s that same bite that helps us recall why these Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries are so irresistible.

I love the versatility of this recipe. Personally, I enjoyed the salty crunch that the almonds give the berries, but no worries if you’re not a fan of nuts. Try crushing up graham crackers, vanilla wafers, gingersnaps, Oreos or even Biscoff cookies to top the berries. Or skip topping them at all and just drizzle the whole plate of them with melted chocolate. I’m thinking there is no right or wrong here…only Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberry goodness.

Tip: This trimming knife is my favorite kitchen tool for this recipe. The short, narrow blade gives enough control to cut a nice, deep cavity in the strawberry without taking out most of the fruit. Highly recommend!

Spring desserts don’t get much easier than these 5-ingredient Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries.

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
Prep Time 25 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 1 pound strawberries
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup roasted, salted almonds, chopped


  1. Core strawberries and cut out additional space in the center of the berry (You’ll need a little extra room for the filling!)
  2. Place cream cheese, vanilla and powdered sugar in a small bowl and beat together until smooth. Place filling in a piping bag or a plastic sandwich bag with a corner cut off. Evenly pipe filling into strawberries. Sprinkle top of filling with chopped almonds. Refrigerate for up to 4 hours or serve immediately.


Plan to serve the berries immediately if using a cookie or cracker topping so the crushed bits don’t get soggy sitting on the cheesecake filling.
