Recently I went to a luncheon in the home of my cousin's daughter. What a lovely person she is and how honored I felt to be invited into her home. I offered to bring the dessert. Actually, I was looking forward to using the mini shot glasses and tiny spoons that my sister gave me for my birthday. The 12 of these tiny glasses came in a box, with spoons included, from Pier One. If you remember from previous posts, if I do eat dessert, I like just a little something sweet, so this was the best gift for me.
What fun to fill these glasses for anything I choosse to use. For the luncheon, I chose sliced fresh strawberries, Jello cheesecake pudding, graham cracker crumbs and topped it all with Cool Whip.
The sliced strawberries, mixed with some frozen strawberry puree' from my freezer. The picture's quality is not the best but I will share it since it is one of the steps.
1 cup of graham crackers
3 TBSP melted butter
1 tsp sugar
Mix together. Spoon about 1 tsp. into each dish and pat down.
Follow the pudding directions on the 3.4 oz. box of Jello, cheesecake pudding box. To that I added 1/2 tsp. of vanilla. The graham crackers, then the pudding, the strawberries, and a dollop of Cool Whip. This dessert is best if it sets in the refrigerator for a few hours first.
I think it is a perfect way to end a meal, with a little something sweet. Thank you to my dear sister for the clever and useful birthday gift.
This might be a gift idea in your future, unless you prefer bigger desserts:)
