It’s almost that time of year — where we get to go strawberry picking! I love the organic place that doesn’t charge us for what we eat as we pick…and go there every year. Our little town of Sun Prairie even has a “Strawberry Festival” to celebrate this sweet, yet tart fruit.
In honor of that, here is a simple recipe to make individual Strawberry Cheesecakes, right inside your mini jars! The presentation is adorable, it is easy to make ahead and certainly is portion controlled…the best of all worlds! This recipe makes six (6) of the tasty treats.
Strawberry Mason Jar Cheesecakes
- 1 package of cream cheese
- 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 12 oz of strawberries sliced
- 1/4 cup of sugar
- 1 tbsp lemon
- 6 Graham crackers
In a mixer place cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla. Blend until smooth. Set aside.
In a separate bowl mix strawberries 1/4 cup of sugar and lemon.
In food processor place graham crackers until they are crumbles.
In the bottom of the mason jar cover the bottom with graham cracker crumbles. Next a layer of cheesecake only till half full then a layer of Strawberries. Repeat the process till your jar is full. The cheesecake can be stored up to 7 days in the refrigerator.
When you are ready, rip into them like a monkey on a cupcake!
