Strawberry Cointreau Shortcake Cups Recipe

My uncle, Cậu Bảy, is visiting us for a few months from Vietnam. He absolutely loves strawberries because they're not available in Vietnam and if they are, they're extremely expensive. I've planted strawberries in our garden but not enough to satisfy his cravings. He really enjoys the Farmers' market and we bought lots and lots of his favorite fruit over Memorial Day weekend.

I transformed a few into delicious strawberry dessert cups flavored with Cointreau. The cups consisted of shortcake, mousse, Cointreau-flavored custard strawberries and chocolate sauce.

Gluten Free Cheesecake Parfait Recipe Recipe

It's National Cheesecake Day this weekend and, though I’ve made many cheesecakes in the past, my goal was to put a new twist on the special dessert. Since we were invited to our friend Carol's home (she’s gluten intolerant), I decided to make my cheesecake gluten-free.

I made the mousse egg-free and flavored it with both raspberries and strawberries. For a contrast in texture, I added a layer of crunchy, diced yellow nectarines. And to make it look more fun, I topped the dessert cups with pistachio-flavored whipped cream and crushed pistachios. I don’t think anyone missed the crust. For those who could eat gluten, I slipped a ladyfinger cookie into the verrine. How amazing does that sound?

No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Recipe (Egg Free Dessert) Recipe

If you're searching for a no bake cheesecake recipe, look no more. It looks fancy but it's ultra easy to assemble. As a bonus, it's an egg-free dessert. So what's not to love? Give this mascarpone cheese dessert a try.

I flavored the cheesecake filling with strawberries and added bananas for a thicker texture. Instead of placing the cheesecake in a spring-form pan, I decided this time to shape the dessert in a long triangular mold I usually use for making terrines (French jellied meatloaf). I first covered the molds with store-bought Italian-style lady finger puffs and completed it with the strawberry-and-banana-flavored cheesecake filling. The presentation turned out pretty spectacular. You know the saying: you eat with your eyes first!
