FRUIT COCKTAIL CHEESECAKE SQUARES (GF)
FRUIT COCKTAIL CHEESECAKE SQUARES
These squares are loosely based on my fruit cocktail cheesecake, which is lovely, and if anyone wants that recipe, I’ll post it as well, although I don’t think I have any photos of it at the moment. I have made it so often; you’d think I would have photographed it!
Kent Altena produced a video for making this dessert. He likes blueberries in it. Watch it here.
