Looking for a cute little dessert for Valentine's Day?
Cheesecake Shooters are small, but oh so yummy!!
Make some for your special Valentine :)
Recipe from Souffle Bombay
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
16 oz. sour cream
1 small box vanilla instant pudding
1/2 cup sugar, plus 1 TBS
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 can of cherry or strawberry pie filling
1 pack (not box) of plain graham crackers
3 T melted butter
In your mixing bowl combine the cream cheese and sour cream until blended. Pour in the pudding mix, sugar and vanilla and mix on medium for 3 minutes more. Place in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.
Crush the graham crackers in your food processor until just crumbs. Add in the butter and 1 T sugar and pulse until combined. Place in a small bowl and set aside.
In your blender or food processor blend/pulse the cherry pie filling until it become syrup (no chunks left). You can make your own syrup from strawberries, blueberries, etc. instead of the pie filling if you have the time. Set aside.
In the shooter cups, wine glasses or whatever you may be using, first spoon enough graham cracker mixture to cover the bottom. Spoon or pipe in some cheesecake, then spoon enough syrup in to cover the cheesecake. Repeat with a second layer of cheesecake. Place a few drops of syrup on top and swirl around for a spiral design by using a wooden toothpick or skewer. I garnished mine with mini Nilla wafers.
Keep cold until ready to serve.
