Ok, the frozen cheesecake in a tiny jar was fun to make, but I’m thinking that I don’t always have the time for those, plus I now have a severe frozen cheesecake addiction. (When we were first married we’d stop off at the Sara Lee store at an outlet mall and I’d eat most of a frozen strawberry cheesecake with Lloyd’s pocketknife. Don’t judge me.)
This came to me right as I was dropping off into a sugar-coma nap, but I’m probably not the first person to come up with this. (But maybe I’m the first one to freeze them! Freezing is key!) I’m sure you could use the ready-made cheesecake filling in a tub, but that stuff frightens me. I mixed half a block of cream cheese, about 2 tablespoons of sugar and somewhere between 1 and 2 teaspoons of lemon juice. Then whip 1/3 whipping cream with a tablespoon or two of sugar & fold into the the cream cheese mixture. Spread on half a graham cracker. Spread jam or preserves (but not jelly – – jelly would be gross) on the other half. Sandwich-ize them! Now, if you don’t want the giant mess I had my first try wrapping these, let them set up in the freezer for a half-hour or so.
Tear off 8 inches of wax paper.
Fold in the sides.
Flip, yet again.
Now, FREEZE, scumbag!
Sweet! A frozen cheesecake sandwich anytime I want! (Um, when’s that high school reunion? I think I have a problem.)
