Today, I made these darling miniature cheesecake cups for an afternoon tea party and I love how they turned out! This recipe really only takes 5 minutes (plus 2 hour setting time) and is so easy to follow. Quick and easy--the two perfect ingredients for mamas in a hurry! Check out the recipe below...
Miniature Tea Cups
1 cup Vanilla Wafer Crumbs
3 Tbsp. Melted Butter
4 Cups Sliced Fresh Strawberries
1 Pkg. (250g) Softened Philadelphia Cream Cheese
2/3 Cup Sugar
1/4 Orange Juice
2 Packets Gelatin (Unflavored)
1/4 Cup Cold Water
1 Pkg. Cool Whip
-Combine vanilla wafer crumbs with melted butter, then press 1-2 tbsp. into each of the lightly greased miniature tea cups.
-Set aside 1 cup of strawberries, and crush the remainder in food processor. Then, add cream cheese, sugar, and orange juice to strawberry mixture and process until smooth.
-Sprinkle gelatin over the cold water and let stand 5 minutes to soften. Next, stir gelatin over low heat to dissolve.
-Blend gelatin into cream cheese mixture, and fold in 1/2 cup of cool whip. Then, pour mixture evenly in tea cups.
-Refrigerate for 2 hours or until set.
-Top with remaining cool whip and strawberries.
