Spring is in the Air!
March 17, 2014
Spring is in the air! And after the long Winter most of the country saw, it's definitely a welcome sight. With Spring comes freshness; new grass, flowers popping through the cold ground and the leaves beginning to show again on the trees. Although I love Spring, it’s so hard to decide what I like best…it’s a tough choice between the flavors of Fall; apples, pumpkins, cinnamon or the flavors of Spring; lemon, strawberry, lime…oh the decisions!
One thing I don't have a hard time deciding is what to serve for Easter. Along with Ham, there must be Deviled Eggs, Salad, Side Dishes and of course Easter Dessert. And this Cheesecake Parfait is perfect!
Beginning with PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese and using the Fluffy 2-Step Cheesecake Recipe, I simply colored the cheesecake with pretty Easter colors and layered it in a mini dessert glass, a sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs between each layer and topped with COOL WHIP Whipped Topping and sprinkles.
The Cheesecake can be layered in any size or shape of glass. You can find the dessert glasses at most department and kitchen stores, and they are very reasonably priced. You can also mix the Cheesecake up ahead of time; I would suggest filling the glasses the day you serve them. They go together in a snap though.
And in case you would rather make a pie with the filling, you can add the cheesecake mixture in layers to a graham cracker crust.
