Have you the recent Women's Day magazine? This is the recipe featured on the cover of April's issue and when I saw it I thought what a perfect Easter dessert for the kiddies. Women's Day used raspberries, but they were almost 5 dollars per container at my local Thriftway, so I used strawberries instead. This dessert is so easy and no mess...all the kiddies need is to open the jar, grab a spoon and enjoy!
To make the cheesecake batter all you need is...
1 8 oz pkg. cream cheese at room temp.
3 T. sugar
1 cup heavy cream
1 T fresh lemon juice
Other ingredients includes...
1 cup of crushed graham crackers
10 oz. of fresh strawberries, pieces and slices
1/2 c strawberry jam
5-6 8 oz jelly jars
In a large beat the cream cheese with the sugar. Gradually add the cream, the whole mixture sure begin to thicken after about two minutes of high speed beating.
In the empty jars add 2 T. of the crushed graham crackers. Next add a full T of the cream cheese mixture and top it off with some of the fresh strawberries and a tablespoon of the jam. Repeat and ed with a smearing of the cream cheese mixture on top. Place a few strawberry slices on to and then refrigerate with the jar lid screwed on for at least 2 hours before serving.
