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)!
