Ingredients
For the Graham Crust Portion:
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 cup graham crumbs
For the Strawberry Portion:
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries chopped finely, I used my food processor
  • 1 orange , juiced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
For the Strawberry Shortcake Portion:
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 8 ounces cream cheese , softened
  • 1 package of Frosting Creations Flavor Mix in Strawberry Shortcake 0.10 oz/3g
For the Whipped Cream Portion:
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
Instructions
For the Graham Crust Portion:
  1. Melt the butter. Combine the butter and graham crumbs and mix until combined.Set aside.
For the Strawberry Portion:
  1. Chop up your strawberries finely, I actually popped mine in my food processor with the orange juice and sugar. Then I just gave it a few pulses with the chopping blade. Worked like a charm.
  2. If you can allow the berries to macerate in the fridge for 30 minutes or up to 2 hours it helps soften them. If your oranges were mutant sized feel free to drain off a little liquid.
  3. Divide the strawberry portion in two batches. Set aside.
For the Strawberry Shortcake Portion:
  1. Make sure you soften your cream cheese completely, if you don't you will end up with lumpy cheesecake. No one likes lumpy cheesecake.
  2. In a stand mixer combine the heavy cream, confectioners' sugar and Strawberry Shortcake Flavor Mix and whip slowly at first, then increase speed and whip until fluffy.
  3. Combine both mixtures in a stand mixer until smooth.
  4. You can transfer this to a piping bag if you like. Makes it easier to get a pretty presentation but it's not crucial. Set aside.
For the Whipped Cream Portion:
  1. In another mixing bowl combine the whipping cream and sugar. Mix on low initially, then gradually amp up speed and whip until the cream is fluffy as all good whipping cream should be. It helps if the heavy cream is super cold, and also if you pop your bowl and whisk in the fridge or freezer that will help too. The cold helps it mix beautifully.
Putting it all together:
  1. Press your graham crumb mixture into the bottom of your serving dishes. I always use the blunt end of a honey dripped to tamp the crumb mixture down.
  2. Now pour the first half of the strawberries evenly into each serving dish.
  3. Pipe the strawberry shortcake cheesecake mixture evenly into the serving dishes.
  4. Pour the second half of the strawberries over top. Leave just a little to top of each glass if you like.
  5. Pipe the whipping cream on top.
  6. Top with a few bits of strawberry.
  7. Place in the fridge and chill for about an hour.
  8. Serve with a big old music loving smile!
