Do you remember those Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake Ice cream Bars? THAT is what this tasted like to me. Sooo Good!!
This just made a little dessert enough for 2 or 3 people to have a little sweet, yummy, something after dinner. You will want to double it to fill an actual 9 inch pie plate.
I made mine crustless. The recipe called for a oreo or graham cracker crust as a base for all the goodness.
I went with the primary ingredients I found for several of the cheesecake recipes in my collection, omitting the butter and egg, since I just wanted something nice and light to satisfy my sweet tooth.
Then added the jam and berries I found on a tart recipe and I was VERY happy with the results.
Super yummy goodness, with a very minimum amount of guilt. Win/Win!
- 2 TB all-purpose flour
- 2 TB sugar
- 1 or 2 TB strawberry jam
- 1/2 package (4 ounces) cream cheese, softened [Reduced Fat] [Greek Cream Cheese is Awesome for this!]
- 2 TB sour cream [Reduced Fat]
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup fresh or frozen unsweetened strawberries [ or any kind of berries you like], thawed and drained [I'm going to try fresh peaches next time!]
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar [honestly, next time I will use a little less since my berries were pretty sweet already]
- 2 TB old-fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 TB cold butter [I used margarine with good results and reduced fat count]
In a small bowl, combine first 6 ingredients [ I popped it in the microwave for about 20 seconds, to get it all soft enough to blend easily together]
I used a little 4 inch ramekin for mine. Sprayed with Pam, then dumped all the gooey goodness in and topped with about an inch of fresh sliced strawberries. Then I pressed them into the goo.
In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, oats and flour; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over filling.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Serve warm or cold.
