I was craving something sweet and after a quick rummage through the fridge and freezer, I came up with strawberries, sugar, cream cheese and cool whip. I also remembered there were still a couple of boxes of fillo shells in the freezer. I figured I could just wing it and come up with something to satisfy my sweet tooth.
These No Bake, Mini Cheesecake Bites certainly did the trick!
For the strawberry topping:
2 cups of strawberries, chopped
1/8 cup of sugar
For the Cheesecake Bites:
1 8 oz package of reduced fat cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup of sugar
1 tsp of vanilla
3/4 cup of cool whip lite
30 mini fillo shells
Instructions: First, chop the strawberries and mix in 1/8 cup of sugar. Set aside in fridge. Then, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla together, and then mix in the cool whip. Put your helpers to work cleaning the mixing utensils:
Using two spoons, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture to the fillo shells.
