If you’re looking for the perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day, then look no further. This special sundae made with vanilla ice cream, real whipped cream, CHEESECAKE and fresh strawberries will do the trick!
I must warn you about this Philadelphia Cheesecake Filling...it's DANGEROUS. Only buy it if you have a plan to use the whole thing, divided by 8 people, immediately . If it sits in the fridge unattended for more than a day it will do a magic trick & disappear from your fridge & reappear on your hips! I will probably never buy it again...it's that
Graham crackers, crushed in food processor
Philadelphia cheesecake filing
Strawberry Sauce, see below
Additional sliced strawberries
Vanilla bean ice cream
Layer the following in each individual sundae dish:
1 tablespoon crushed graham crackers
1 ice cream scoop Philadelphia cheesecake filling (1/4 cup)
1 tablespoon of strawberry sauce
4 large swirls vanilla soft serve (or 3 scoops vanilla ice cream)
2 tablespoons strawberry sauce
1 tablespoon crushed graham cracker
2 puffs real whipped cream (more!)
For Strawberry Sauce: Clean & slice 1 pound strawberries, place in a saucepan and stir in 1/3 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Cook, stirring occasionally, over medium heat for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and puree in a blender until smooth. Will thicken upon cooling. Store in refrigerator and serve cold. This will make lots of extra sauce. Delicious served over cheesecake or ice cream or use it in smoothies or milkshakes or drizzle over pound cake or crepes!
