Strawberry Cream Squares #SundaySupper

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.

Prep time:
Total time:
 
Light and creamy, and perfect for the end of summer. Fresh Strawberries are wonderful in this dessert.
Ingredients
  • 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)
Instructions
  1. 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.
  2. Mix the cream cheese and sugar together until well combined. Fold in the strawberries. Spread evenly on top of the graham cracker layer.
  3. 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.
