This quick and easy cheesecake dip only has 3 ingredients but is sure to impress! Serve this dip with graham crackers and you have all the delicious flavors of cheesecake without the hassle.
I used cherry pie filling to create my brain dip but strawberry could be used as well. Just beware of the seeds when glazing ;)
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 16 oz cream cheese softened
- 1/4 cup cherry pie filling plus extra for glazing
- You can serve this dip with any cookie for dipping. I like it with graham crackers and/or pecan sandies
Mix together the powdered sugar, cream cheese and 1/4 cup of cherry pie filling until just combined. Reserve 1/3 of the batter for decorating and chill the remaining batter in the fridge for 15-20 minutes until firm. Meanwhile fill a pastry bag or ziplock bag with the un-chilled reserved batter and cut the tip to form an 1/2 inch opening.
After chilling, remove the batter from the fridge and spoon onto your serving dish. Then use a spatula or knife to form into a brain shape. Use your pastry bag to pipe on the brain design. Once complete, use a food safe paint brush or your finger to glaze the brain with the additional cherry pie filling liquid.
If you have a little bit more time on your hands you can use the same recipe to make mini cheesecake brain bites. Just spoon out the cheesecake batter, roll in graham cracker crumbs, form the balls into brain shapes and pipe with additional cheesecake batter to make the brain design. Paint with cherry pie filling liquid and chill before enjoying. :)
Either way you decide to enjoy these brains you won't be disappointed!

Is it a cookie is it a cake? Who cares, it's delicious! This white chocolate version of the classic brownie is full of yummy crunchy gooey deliciousness. Pecan and Coconut is one of my favorite flavor combinations. A bit of a sweet and salty combo. Add some chocolate and you have a German chocolate-esque blondie.
This swiss roll Yule log is both beautiful and delicious. Mocha swiss meringue buttercream is spiraled with espresso sponge cake, all covered in chocolate ganache and adorned with truffles, macarons, and chocolate leaves. ...and of course a little powdered sugar makes everything look like a festive winter wonderland.
Pecans, orange zest, and sugar are layered between crispy phyllo layers all soaked in a spiced wine syrup. What this baklava lacks in traditional flavors it makes up for in presentation and deliciousness.
These giant rolls are filled with butter, sugar, cinnamon, semi sweet chocolate, and pecan pieces. Topped with a sugary glaze and because you can never have too much chocolate, they are drizzled with chocolate too.
These little cakelette are bursting with holiday flavor. They are both tart and sweet from the fresh cranberries and the mini size make them perfect for entertaining.
Piecaken, why not? This cake combines everybody's favorite pumpkin pie with ginger spice cake. Cover it all in vanilla swiss meringue buttercream to form a Thanksgiving miracle. Why not layer a moist spice cake with silky pumpkin pie?
This vanilla butter cake and vanilla bean Swiss meringue buttercream cakes is decorated with a blue wave ombre, gum paste shells, graham cracker "sand", and anchor topper.
This is a Halloween version of a classic Christmas Gingerbread house. I used my gingerbread cookie cutout recipe and a custom template to make this Haunted Tower.
This cake is decadent and spooky all at the same time. A moist, fudgy mocha cake is topped with a light and chewy chocolate meringue. Corpse finger and moss cookies are added for a spooky sight. Even if you don't want to decorate the cake for halloween, the mocha meringue cake is worth the effort.
This is an autumnal version of the classic coffee crumb cake. The brown butter cake is topped with a crunchy hazelnut, raw sugar, and cinnamon streusel and juicy pear slices.
