Cherry Cheesecake in a Jar!


You are probably looking at the picture and saying to yourself--looks like strawberries to me!  You would be right.  When Olivia made this for a recent event at her house, she used strawberry pie filling she had canned.  It was a big hit.  You can use cherries if you like, or if you are looking for a handy and beautiful red, white, and blue dessert for July 4th, try putting a layer of blueberries on the crust and then the white layer and then the cherry pie filling or strawberry filling.  You won't be sorry you did this quick, easy, and eye catching dessert.  Serving it in canning jars makes it fast and fun!

We hope you and your family and friends have a safe and happy Fourth of July!  Get out there and celebrate the freedom we enjoy!
