Layers of buttery cookie crumbs, sweet cream cheese and fresh strawberries make a dreamy quick-to-fix dessert.
Updated January 15, 2007

Ingredients

  • 10 vanilla wafer cookies
  • 2 teaspoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/2 cup soft cream cheese (from 8-oz tub)
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon orange-flavored liqueur, if desired
  • 1 quart fresh strawberries, sliced (3 cups)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Place cookies in blender. Cover; blend on high speed until finely crushed. In small bowl, mix cookie crumbs and butter. Spread on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake about 5 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat remaining ingredients except strawberries with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.
  • 3
    Divide strawberries among 4 large wine glasses or individual dessert dishes. Top each with about 1/4 cup cream cheese mixture; sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons crumbs.

  • You can use raspberries or a combination of your favorite berries instead of just strawberries in this elegant dessert.
  • Keep strawberries at their freshest by waiting to wash them gently until just before you hull them. As strawberries absorb water, they begin to lose flavor.
