Joey has been here a couple of days and made a request for strawberry cheesecake. So I searched one of my favorite websites, Just Get Off Your Butt and Bake and found this super easy recipe!
I had a little helper in the kitchen with me again today and she was all too glad to help cut up the strawberries (which meant she got to eat more than she put in the pan)!
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1/4 cup chopped almonds, toasted
1 tablespoon sugar
1 graham cracker crust (9 inches)
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
2 cups cold milk, divided
1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
Directions: In a bowl, combine the strawberries, almonds (I didn’t use the almonds) and sugar. Pour into crust. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth; gradually add 1/2 cup of milk. Add pudding mix and remaining milk. Beat for 1 minute or until blended; pour over strawberries. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until set.
As you can see, step by step, that this wasn’t very difficult to make either. It was pretty good. Adding the pudding to the cheesecake mix wasn’t the flavor my son was looking for. And only because he’s down here for this week, I went on searching for what he was looking for.
Now don’t get me wrong, this was eaten, and it was very good. He was looking more for the cream cheese minus the pudding. Just gave me one more dessert to make and post. Look for the next one coming up.
Have a great week.
