There are times when I just need a nibble of dessert.
Or there are times I’m going to a potluck party and I want to provide a dessert that makes it easy to eat, walk around, and chat with people.
Or there are times when I really want strawberry cheesecake but know that I will eat the whole pan and will realize my pants aren’t going to fit right in a couple of days.
If any of those things sound familiar, you need to try this Strawberry Cheesecake Cookie Bites Recipe. It’s a simple six ingredient recipe that provides all the creamy-yumminess of cheesecake, with the crunch of a cookie and the tender sweetness of strawberries. Plus, substitute reduced-fat cream cheese, and it becomes a lower-calorie dessert option vs regular cheesecake.
And the presentation is really, really pretty…so people will think you’ve spent hours, when really you spent under 15 minutes.
And if you have budding chefs in training, because it is no-bake, your kiddos can easily get involved and help you create and lick the bowl when you are done.
