Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Happy Valentine's Day to you all! I hope you all are feeling loved today. I am very excited for tonight. We are having a quiet dinner at home with the kids. I've made a special treat just for them. Strawberry Cheesecake! Not only is it their favorite, but it's wrapped up in this ADORABLE little jar with a sweet little Valentine note for each of them. I hope they like them!

Strawberry Cheesecake Recipe:
4 - 5 mini Mason jars
8oz. Cream Cheese
8oz. Cool Whip
1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp. lemon juice

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and whip until smooth and fluffy. I used my whisk attachment on medium – high speed for a minute or two.

9 Honey Graham Crackers (crushed)
1/3 cup Butter (melted)

Crush the graham crackers into crumbs and drizzle melted butter into the bowl. Press the crust mixture into the bottom of your jar. 

Layer crust, cheesecake to assemble your pie. Then, I topped it with a can of strawberry pie filling.
