Cheesecake Shooters

Easy, make-ahead dessert that is dressed to impress! You can alter the fruit topping to suit your taste; use any combination of berries, peaches, cherries or pie filling. Small wine glasses can be used for serving, but ramekins would also work nicely. For this version, I used frozen strawberries and marionberries but seasonal fresh fruit would work beautifully! Whip these babies out of the fridge after dinner and there will be oohs and aahs (especially when they find out it's not that big of a hit on the waistline, either)!

How to Make Cheesecake Shooters

Step-by-Step

  1. Place thawed fruit in a food processor bowl and pulse until mostly pureed - with some larger pieces still visible. Stir in Splenda to desired sweetness. Set aside.

  4. Divide the graham cracker crumbs evenly between all serving glasses.
  5. Spoon the cream cheese mixture evenly over the top of the graham cracker crumbs in each glass.
  6. Spoon the fruit evenly over the top of the cream cheese mixture in each glass.
