Orange Scented Ricotta Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Strawberry season is in full swing!  I am buying strawberries by the case and finding all sorts of awesome ways to use them up!

These stuffed strawberries are little lighter than the average ones, because of the use of ricotta cheese.  It makes the stuffing almost cloud like.


Betcha can’t eat just one.

Prep time
Total time
Orange Scented Ricotta Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
Serves: 4
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup ricotta cheese
  • ⅓ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon orange juice
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 quart strawberries
  1. In a medium bowl beat together all ingredients, except strawberries, until smooth.
  2. Using a small paring knife cut a little bit off the tip of the berry so it will stand up straight.  Cut the top off and using a small spoon or melon baller scoop out some of the middle of the strawberry.  Fill each strawberry with a small spoon or place filling in a pipping bag and fill that way.  Garnish with fresh mint if desired.
  3. Eat!


Crepes Four Ways

A few weeks ago when I made this, I had some left over crepes.

What a shame.

Here’s a few ideas on what you can do if you are ever in that situation.



Top with lemon curd.



Or top with lemon curd and strawberries.



Or top with lemon curd, strawberries, and whipped cream.



That one deserved a close up.



Or top with the lemon whipped cream, from here.

So if you are ever in the predicament I was, I’ve got you covered.

Plus, you can totally eat this for breakfast right?  I mean it has fruit and everything.

(I won’t tell anyone if you just to decide to smear them with Nutella and call it day.)

Perfect for spring time and Easter!

P.S. Loving the strawberries right now! I get mine picked fresh that day from Buoye Farms!  You can’t beat them!
