Strawberry Cheesecake Dip

COOK’S TIP: This fresh dip tastes delicious with graham crackers, pound cake or fresh fruit.

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz.  strawberries (about 6–8), stems removed, divided

  • ¾ cup powdered sugar

Directions:

  1. Slice 3 of the strawberries. Place in bowl. Sprinkle sugar on top.

  4. Add the cream cheese mixture to the strawberries and stir to combine.
  5. Fold in the yogurt.

Enjoy!
