Cheesecake Shooters

An incredibly easy but super yummy no bake dessert that you can make fast. Fourth of July in just around the corner , I used strawberries and blueberries for the red , white and blue theme. You know what's also awesome about this super yummy treat is the homemade strawberry filling. Recipe is provided below too!

**updated photos 7/28/2014 ( cherry cheesecake shooters below )

Ingredients:

12-15 crushed graham crackers
1 8 oz cream cheese ( if you want it thicker , add 1 more 8 oz package of cream cheese)
1/2 can of condensed milk ( if making it thicker , use whole can)
Strawberry Filling ( recipe below)
Frozen or fresh blueberries


Directions:

Using  a ziploc bag, crush your graham crackers. Crush and smash it like you mean it :)


In a medium size bowl , Using an electric mixer beat your cream cheese and condensed milk until fluffy.

Put the cream cheese mixture in your fridge for about 20 -30 minutes .


 Spoon your graham cracker crumbs onto the small cocktail glass or shot glass. Whatever
 you want to use. Ive used mason jars before, and they are gorgeous!


Using a Ziploc bag ( cut the corners but not so big) or a pastry/icing bag , pipe the cream cheese filling on top of the crumbs.


Top the cream cheese filling with the  ( cooled) HOMEMADE STRAWBERRY FILLING ( hang in there..recipe is provided below)


Top with fresh or frozen blueberries.


Now tell me thats not ridiculously easy..

** update **

Our friends recently visited us and I had little time to prepare a dessert. Luckily I have all the ingredients to make this yummy shooters but did a short cut version. Instead of using homemade strawberry filling, I used a canned cherry pie filling. It was awesome! Also, Instead of using 1 8 oz of cream cheese.. I used 2 (8 oz each)  cream cheese and use the whole can of condensed/ sweetened milk.

delish!

 A quick and easy dessert..


I even used mason jars..they're too cute !



Cheesecake in a jar? Yes please!!



Enjoy !!

I would love to connect with you!

    1. Hello there! Thank you for stopping by..I appreciate your time and welcome. I feel blessed ♥
      The cups are from dollar tree! ( 5 pack for just a dollar) . You can find them at the party supply aisle. They are plastic though..but holds the shooters really well. Thank you Pat and hope you had an amazing 4th of July.

  3. Wow this looks great! I love how they are already in separate containers (so I won't be tempted to nibble at more cheesecake).

    1. Hi Jennifer, for the cheesecake with strawberry filling ( original recipe on top using 1 8oz cream cheese) I was able to make 6 of the small cocktail glass from the dollar store. For the revised one with Cherry filling ( updated at the bottom) I was able to make 4 mason jars ( almost full) and 5 of the small cocktail glass. It really depends on how will you " assemble" it. Thank you for stopping by!
