Dessert

No-bake Strawberry cheesecake pie with Chocolate cookie crust.

IMG_1984

This recipe was “thrown” together because I had a lot of filling left over from the Raspberry Vanilla Cake I made (https://quetesaveur.com/2017/07/04/raspberry-vanilla-cake/)

For this recipe you will need:

A store bought cookie crust, I bought chocolate you can use whatever you like.

Then it gets really technical, so pay close attention ! You will beed to put the filling into the crust and top it with sliced strawberries.  Real hard !!!!!!!

Chill, slice and eat !

P.S: for another variation on this recipe check out this link.  I made this pie for 4th of july a few years ago !

An Italian classic, perfect for hot summer nights !

Ingredients:
2 cups boiling-hot water
3 tablespoons instant-espresso powder
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
3 tablespoons Tia Maria (coffee liqueur)
4 large egg yolks
1/3 cup dry Marsala
1 pound mascarpone (2 1/2 cups)
1 cup chilled heavy cream
36 savoiardi (crisp Italian ladyfingers; from two 7-ounce packages)
dark chocolate shavings for garnish

Method:

Stir together water, espresso powder, 1 tablespoon sugar, and Tia Maria in a shallow bowl until sugar has dissolved, then cool.

Beat egg yolks, Marsala, and remaining 1/2 cup sugar in a metal bowl set over a saucepan of barely simmering water using a whisk or handheld electric mixer until tripled in volume, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove bowl from heat. Beat in mascarpone until just combined.

Dipping both sides of each ladyfinger into coffee mixture, line bottom of a 13- by 9- by 3-inch baking pan with 18 ladyfingers in 3 rows, trimming edges to fit if necessary. Spread half of mascarpone filling on top. Dip remaining 18 ladyfingers in coffee and arrange over filling in pan.

Red, white and blue Cheesecake Pie !!!!

The easiest dessert you will make this 4th of July ! With the heat rising, it makes no sense to turn on the oven ! So I turn to store bought goodies to help me out.  Also this is somewhat healthy since I choose sugar-free and fat-free ingredients.

This is what you need.

1 store bought graham cracker pie shell

1, 8oz tub of thawed fat-free whipped topping

1, 1oz package of  sugar-free, fat-free cheesecake flavored pudding mix

1, 6oz tub of fat-free vanilla yogurt (not greek, but I think you could use it if you wanted a tangy taste)

mix all these ingredients and pour into the shell.

Decorate with berries of choice.  I used strawberries and blueberries, but you could use, cherries, blackberries or raspberries.

Serve chilled !
