Everyone that knows me knows that my favorite dessert is cheesecake.  I could actually eat cheesecake for all 3 meals of the day if I could, lol. 

 Anyway, I came across this good recipe for Strawberry Cheescake Parfaits.  This is perfect for me since strawberries are my favorite fruit. 

So try out this cool recipe that can be incorporated for any event (big and small) and let me know what you think!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 12 ounces of cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2/3 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 2 teaspoons Amaretto
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • mint springs, for garnish

Instructions:

Slice the strawberries into a bowl and sprinkle with one tablespoon of sugar. Toss and set aside.

Mix the graham cracker crumbs with the melted butter and one tablespoon of sugar.

Beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the sour cream, confectioners’ sugar and Amaretto and beat until combined.

In another bowl, whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Fold into the cream cheese mixture.
