Aha! I think this may become the secret weapon for the season. This is a whipped cheesecake that requires no baking. Period! I know you don’t have time for a long, drawn out baking session.
- 1- 8 0z. pkg. of cream cheese, at room temperature
- 2 cups of heavy whipping cream, well chilled, divided
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1`/4 cup, plus 1 tbsp. sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
- pinch of cinnamon
- 1 cup finely chopped strawberries
- mint sprigs (optional) for garnish
With your mixer on low speed, beat the cream cheese, 1/2 cup whipping cream, sour cream, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy (4 minutes)
In a separate bowl, with clean beaters, beat the remaining whipping cream on high to get stiff peaks. Stir a large spoonful of whipping cream into the cream cheese mixture to lighten the texture. Now add the cheese mixture back into the remaining whipping cream and gently fold in until completely combined.
Using your eight prettiest glasses (about 2/3 cup), place 1/2 tbsp. graham crumbs in the bottom of each glass. Top with a layer of mousse to fill the glass 1/2 full. Add a layer of chopped strawberries, another layer of mousse to come to the rim of the glass. Garnish with some graham crumbs, some chopped strawberries and, if using, a sprig of mint.
These look pretty, are delicious and look how easy it is.
