Strawberry Cheesecake Shooters Recipe


   Remember when I posted the Oreo Chocolate Pudding Parfait Recipe and told you that I was going to buy some shot glasses and make a strawberry cheesecake variation? I promised that I'd post the recipe and pics and so here they are. Enjoy!!



Strawberry Cheesecake Shooters
*makes 4 shooters



Ingredients:

4 shot glasses (I used 5oz shot glasses)
1 (4-serving size) package Cheesecake flavored Jell-O Instant Pudding Mix
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups frozen sweetened strawberries*, thawed
1 cup graham cracker crumbs


*If you cannot find pre-sweetened frozen strawberries, simply add 2 tablespoons of sugar to unsweetened strawberries after they have thawed and stir.


Directions:

   Mix pudding packet with milk as directed on package. Set in fridge to chill.


   Place the thawed strawberries in a bowl and mash with potato masher or back of fork. Set aside. Take your graham crackers and process in food processor until finely ground or crush in a Ziploc bag using a rolling pin.


   When pudding has set, it is time to assemble the shooters. First sprinkle a layer of graham cracker crumbs on the bottom of your shooters.


   Next, spoon a layer of the cheesecake pudding on top.




   Add a layer of mashed strawberries.



   Repeat with another layer of grahams then pudding.




   Finally, finish off the top with more strawberries.



   Here is our finished product (you can even add a dollop of whipped cream if you like).



   And here is a side view:


   They were so easy to make and delicious!!






***Bonus Tip: Similar to the tip I mentioned in the Oreo Chocolate Pudding Parfait Recipe I also keep a gallon-size bag of crushed graham cracker crumbs on hand in my pantry at all times. It's great for making pie crusts; cake, cupcake or sundae toppings and you can even mix them into shakes or smoothies.***
