With this no-bake, easy cheesecake, we’re getting ready for the 4th of July holiday. Mini Dessert Glasses have a creamy cheesecake layer layered with crushed graham crackers and then topped off with berries. Over the past year, these little treats have been a favorite at family gatherings. I added little stars made from puff pastry for the Fourth of July.
Softened block cream cheese in 4 packages of 8 ounces each.
1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar
Vanilla Extract, 1/2 teaspoon HTML0
One tub (8 oz.) Cool Whip defrosted
8 to 10 graham cracker sheets, finely crushed
Fresh blueberries and raspberries
Sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs. Top with berries. For an added touch, add a pastry star.
Refrigerate for 4 hours or until the product is firm. Serve chilled. This recipe makes approximately 16 mini-servings, depending on your serving glass size.
If you don’t own a piping bag, use a Ziploc to fill the glasses. Fill it partially, seal the bag, and cut off one corner. Squeeze it out!
Set cream cheese out at room temperature before you start. This will make it easier to blend everything and achieve a smooth consistency.
Serve with Star Pastries and berries for a patriotic display.
