No-Bake Cherry Cheesecake Cups Printer-Friendly Recipe
Recipe Adapted From: Cafe Delites
Makes: 4 Servings
1 cup fresh or frozen cherries, pitted
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons water
8oz package of cream cheese, softened or at room temperature (low fat or fat free, if you please)
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice (optional)
1 cup crushed Oreos (somewhere around 8-10 Oreos)
Add the cherries, 2 tablespoons of sugar, & 2 tablespoons of water to a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool a bit.
Using an electric hand-mixer, beat together the cream cheese, yogurt, sugar, & lemon juice until smooth.
to assemble cups
In small cups, layer the ingredients together. I did a layer of the crushed Oreos (reserving a small amount for the tops), 1/2 of the cheesecake mixture, 1/2 of the cherry sauce, followed by the remaining 1/2 of the cheesecake mixture, the remaining 1/2 of the cherry sauce, and finally, a sprinkle of the rest of the Oreos. Layer however you desire, it will taste good no matter what! Add fresh cherries or whole Oreos to the tops to really send the cups over the edge. Refrigerate to allow the cups to set up, about 10 minutes. Of course, refrigerate any leftovers (if you have any…). Enjoy!
