Portable Dessert

Who doesn’t want their own self-contained cheesecake in an adorable little jar? They’re an easy do-it-yourself project with children, fun to eat and great for dinner parties or really any occasion. I opted for a no-bake filling recipe that I found online but can be substituted for any recipe you desire. The same applies to the toppings and crust! These jars were a steal at a local craft store and provide the perfect serving size. If you’re using a cheesecake that requires baking, be sure to use jars that can withstand the heat. Download the labels here and decorate jars with ribbon, buttons or paint. Cheers to spring being on the way! CRUST 2 cups finely ground graham crackers 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 stick unsalted butter In a mixing bowl, combine the ingredients with a fork until evenly moistened. Push layer of crust into bottom of jars. No Bake Cheesecake Filling 8 ounce package cream cheese 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk 2 tablespoons lemon juice (can be modified to taste) 1 tsp clear vanilla extract Blend ingredients together with a mixer until smooth and creamy, add as the second layer on top of graham cracker crust Toppings Strawberries or blueberries Slice and mix with sugar, cover and let sit in fridge for a couple of hours or until the sugar dissolves into the fruit [nggallery id=157]
