Gingersnap Berry Dessert
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
1/2 cup finely crushed gingersnap cookies (about 9 cookies)
1/3 cup finely crushed vanilla wafers (about 10 wafers)
2 tablespoons finely chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 packages (3 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries, divided
3/4 cup sliced fresh strawberries
In a bowl, combine the gingersnap crumbs, wafer crumbs, walnuts and butter. Press onto the bottom and 1-1/2 in. up the sides of a greased 6-in. springform pan. Bake at 375° for 5-7 minutes or until crust is set. Cool on a wire rack.
In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add vanilla. Carefully spread about 1/3 cup over crust. Top with half blueberries. Spread with about 1/3 cup cream cheese mixture. Top with strawberries. Spread with remaining cream cheese mixture. Arrange remaining blueberries on top. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
