How Long will Strawberry Cheesecake Bites Last?
- Because strawberries tend to ripen quickly and get juicy when they interact with sugar, it is best to eat Strawberry Cheesecake Bites within a few hours of making them
How do you store Strawberry Cheesecake Bites?
- Store Cheesecake bites on their serving platter – loosely covered with plastic wrap or in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one day
Tips and Tricks for Making Strawberry Cheesecake Bites:
- You can either use a piping bag with a star tip or simply use a storage bag with the corner snipped off to fill strawberries
- A couple of ways to make an area in the strawberry for filling is to cut an x in the center of the strawberry all the way to the bottom or hollow out the center with a pairing knife or small spoon
- Be sure to cut the stem off so your strawberry can sit flat on the surface
- Set aside an hour before serving for chilling
- This recipe makes 18-20 strawberry bites, but you can double the recipe for more
- These bites are best if served immediately or within the first hour of making them, but they can be lightly covered and stored in the fridge for up to 4 hours

Here’s the recipe for Strawberry Cheesecake Bites…
Strawberry Cheesecake Bites
- 1 piping bag with star tip
- 1 bowl for mixing
- 1 sharp knife
- 20 fresh strawberries medium sized – rinsed and dried
- 1 8 oz. cream cheese
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- optional – blueberries for topping
- Using a knife, cut the stems off of the strawberries
- Continue using the knife to cut an x in the center of the strawberry – start at the pointed tip and go all the way to the bottom without cutting all of the way through
- In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla
- Scoop the cream cheese filling into the piping bag
- Fill the center of the strawberries with cream cheese mixture and set on your serving platter
- If you want, add a blueberry to the top of each strawberry
- Place the strawberries uncovered in the fridge for 1 hour before serving
- *If you want to make these ahead of time – cover loosely with plastic wrap or keep them in an airtight container and in the refrigerator for up to 4 hours. The strawberries will quickly react to the sugar in the cream cheese filling and start to bleed onto the cheesecake center, so the sooner that you serve them – the better.
- Add graham cracker crumbs to the top of the cream cheese for another cheesecake dimension
- you can double or triple the recipe for more strawberries
- If you don’t have a piping bag, you can easily use a storage bag with a corner snipped out of it
