Ingredients

  • 4 cups of Chopped Strawberries
  • 2 Tbsp of Balsamic Vinegar or Balsamic Glaze
  • 1/4 cup of Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 cup of Crushed Graham Crackers
  • 1 9 inch Loaf of Pound cake
  • 8 oz of Cream Cheese, softened at room temp
  • 1/2 cup of Powdered Sugar
  • 8oz of Whipped Topping, thawed
  • Zest of 1/2 of a Lemon
  • 1 tsp of Vanilla Extract

Preparation

    1) In a bowl, toss the berries with the balsamic and sugar and set aside.

    2) In a large bowl, cream together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, lemon zest and vanilla until well combined, then fold in the whipped topping (it will turn into a thick mousse like consistency), place the cream in a large piping bag, snip the tip and set aside.

    3) Cut the pound cake into slices and add a piece to the bottom of a serving cup (this makes 12 so use small single size cups) then top with a spoonful of strawberries, pipe over some of the cream, add a sprinkle of the graham cracker crumbs and finish with another spoonful of strawberries.

    4) Pop them in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.
