Hi everyone! It's Holly again from Life in the Lofthouse! I'm so happy to be here today to share an amazing and easy dessert, perfect for Mother's Day! These delicious dessert squares are made of a soft sugar cookie crust, topped with a dreamy layer of cream cheese and white chocolate. A strawberry glaze, with fresh strawberries, are what top it off to perfection. It is out of this world, delicious! And highly addictive, I must warn you ;)
I want to wish all of you amazing Mothers a very Happy Mother's Day. I hope you all get spoiled and pampered, and maybe get someone to make this fantastic dessert for you!
1 pouch ( 1 lb 5 oz) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 large egg
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 package ( 8 ounce) cream cheese, softened
3 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1/3 cup water
Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan with non-stick spray.
In a large bowl, mix together the cookie mix, butter and egg until a dough forms. Press dough into the bottom of the baking pan. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
In a small, microwave-safe bowl, microwave white chocolate chips for 45 to 60 seconds or until chips are melted. Stir until smooth. In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth. Stir in the melted chocolate chips. Spread this mixture evenly over the cooled sugar cookie crust. Refrigerate while making the topping.
In a small bowl, crush 1 cup of the strawberries. In 2-quart saucepan, add the 1 cup of crushed strawberries, sugar, cornstarch and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils and thickens. Remove from heat and let cool 10 minutes. Gently fold in remaining strawberries. Spoon over the filling. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or until set. Serve and enjoy!
A huge thanks to Holly for sharing another winning recipe. This is just begging me to make it for my next summer picnic or BBQ to serve. Love that sugar cookie crust too!
