10Vanilla wafer cookie extra for decoration optional
8ozcream cheesesoftened to room temp
2tspCointreauor preferred orange liqour, optional
3cupsfresh strawberrieswashed and sliced
Preheat an oven to 350F. Crush the vanilla wafer cookies in a blender or food processor to a crumble. In a small bowl add the cookie crumbs and the melted butter and mix to coat.
Spread the cookie crumbs evenly over a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for about 7-8 minutes until lightly toasted. Remove from oven and set aside.
Meanwhile add the cream cheese, sugar, orange juice, Cointreau and milk to a large bowl and beat with a hand-mixer until smooth.
Fill each of the four dessert glasses evenly with a layer of the cheesecake filling, then a layer of strawberries, another layer of cheesecake filling, more strawberries, a final dollop of cheesecake filling and then sprinkle with the vanilla wafer crumble. Top with an additional cookie or strawberry for decoration. Enjoy!
Any berries, mango, peaches or bananas can be used to replace strawberries or a combo of these.
Cointreau is optional and can be swapped for additional orange juice or an alternative orange liquor.
These can be made a day ahead of time with the cookie crumble being added only right before serving to avoid the crumble from losing its crunch.
