Here’s a yummy treat to make for your July 4th celebration: New York Cherry Cheesecake Parfait!
First, pick off the stems of fresh cherries
You can use either a cherry pitter or a piping tip to remove the pits (which are like seeds)
Put the pitted cherries into a small pot and sprinkle a little sugar on them.
Cook the cherries on medium heat for about 6-7 minutes until they are bubbly.
Put softened cream cheese into a mixing bowl.
Add sour cream to the cream cheese
Then a little sugar
And some vanilla and whisk everything together until it is creamy.
Put a few vanilla wafers (or graham crackers) into a ziploc baggie and crush with your hand to make cookie crumbs.
Now comes the fun part…putting it all together!
Add some of your scrumptious cherry mixture to a small glass or bowl
Then add a little of the cream cheese mixture
Cookie Crumbs go in next…
Next are the beautiful blueberries. Then repeat the pattern.
Cherries, Cream Cheese Mixture, Cookie Crumbs, Blueberries.
What do you get? A New York Cherry Cheesecake Parfait…a yummy way to enjoy celebrating the Red, White, and Blue!
Happy Birthday, America! America!
God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good
From sea to shining sea!
