Pre-Valentine Day Parfaits

Rose Mary Mogan


This is more of an idea, than an actual recipe. I am posting it to give you an idea of what can be done with left over cheesecake batter, and left over Homemade chocolate chip cookies. I also had extra Strawberries left over from my Valentines Day Two Layer Cheesecake that I was making a day early.

So rather than throw it out, I decided to make parfaits, & it was the perfect addition to our left over Hodge Podge dinner from the fridge. While I was prepping for my Valentine's Dinner. The part that was left over was the NO BAKE LAYER of the cheesecake. Parfaits makes an impressive dessert.
