Flashback Friday: Easy, No Bake Mini Cheesecake Bites

It's time for another Flashback Friday!  I have many new followers since I first published this recipe for my No Bake Mini Cheesecake Bites, and you may have missed the recipe.  This is one of my all time favorite dessert recipes.  It's so easy and fast to throw together, and makes a wonderful treat for the family or your holiday guests.  

I made these cheesecake bites in the summer when strawberries were in season, but think how delicious they would be topped with cherry pie filling instead of strawberries!


No Bake Mini Cheesecake Bites

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

First, chop the strawberries and mix in 1/8 cup of sugar.  Set aside in fridge.

Next, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla together,

Mix the cool whip into the cream cheese mixture. 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.

This is what the fillo shells look like, you could use any brand.  The ones I used are 2 for 25 calories

Chill in the fridge for about an hour.  When you're ready to serve, top with the strawberry mixture.
