Recipe Creations

***I was sent products by Walkers Shortbread to create a recipe.  All opinions are my own***

Good Day! It’s been a minute, yeah? Totes unintentional. Life gets in the way HARD, I tell ya!

I want to talk to you today about a recipe I created recently. Walkers Shortbread sent me some cookies and blueberry preserves.  The first thing that popped in my mind was cheesecake! I didn’t want traditional cheesecake though. I wanted something light and refreshing.

I first thought cupcakes but the recipe I created didn’t firm up like a traditional cheesecake up.  It was still edible, just had to be eating quickly or with a fork.  We devoured them both ways. This recipe was much better in a trifle form.

These preserves were so good, I accidentally ran across them at my local grocery store, Winn Dixie for anyone local, and snatched a jar up so quick! Dear lord they are good!

The recipe:

Blueberry Cheesecake Trifle

1 Jar Bonne Maman Blueberry preserves (or flavor of your choice, they have many to choose from!)

zest and juice of 1 lemon

2 8 oz packages of cream cheese, softened

1 tub cool whip, thawed

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 C almond milk (or milk of your choice)

2 C powdered sugar

1 package Walkers Shortbread cookies

Directions:

in a small saucepan over med-low heat, stir together jar of preserves, zest and juice of lemon, let reduce.

in a mixing bowl, stir together cream cheese, milk, powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Fold in cool whip.

Crumble a cookie in the bottom of the container if making individual servings or 1/2 of the package if making a multi portion bowl.

cover with 1/2 of the cream cheese mixture.

top with 1/2 of the blueberry reduction.

add additional cookies reserving 2 for topping.

repeat.

top with last 2 cookies crumbled.

Enjoy!

This WILL be making another appearance in our house very soon.  Probably tomorrow!

Have a great rest of your weekend!

Let me know if you try this and how you like it!
