It is Sunday, you know what that means! Time for the #SundaySupper Labor Day edition. Today we are having a cookout, and I brought these perfect Strawberry Cream Squares. Every cookout needs dessert, and an end of the summer cookout needs Strawberries!!
My husband sent me a link to this recipe with “Yum” as the only words in the email. I took that as a hint. This is completely his kind of a dessert. Strawberries, whipped cream, and no chocolate to be seen. It is the perfect light and creamy dessert for the end of summer. I made this with fresh strawberries, but you could easily do frozen. You could even change up the fruit to whatever your favorite is; blueberries, raspberries, bananas etc.
I hope you have a great Labor Day, and enjoy the time with family and friends. I am not sure I am ready for fall weather yet or not, but it is coming. Enjoy the last bits of summer that are here.
- 8 graham cracker sheets, crushed
- 3 Tbls butter, melted
- 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened (I used ⅓ less fat)
- ⅓ cup sugar
- 1 cup fresh strawberries, diced
- 1 cup whipped cream
- 1 (3.4 oz) vanilla flavored instant pudding (I used sugar free)
- 1¾ cup cold milk (I used skim milk)
- Mix the crushed graham crackers and the butter together. Press (reserve 1 Tbls of crumbs) into the bottom of an 8 in square baking pan. Place the refrigerator to harden while you prepare the filling.
- Mix the cream cheese and sugar together until well combined. Fold in the strawberries. Spread evenly on top of the graham cracker layer.
- Combine the milk and the pudding mix and whisk for 2 minutes. Pour over the cream cheese layer. Place in the fridge for 1 hour to set. Remove and spread with layer of whipped cream. Sprinkle reserved graham cracker crumbs over the top. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours to completely set.
