A Minister's Dessert: Strawberry/Peach Cream Dessert


I love strawberry season! How about you?
And this is perfect for Memorial Day!
A huge thank you goes out to the service men/women that have served and are currently serving.


Are you wondering why this dessert isn't plated and photographed for you? If I were you, I would be wondering why....
I couldn't cut into this dessert because it was delivered to my Minister. He had shoulder surgery and demanded that I make him a treat. Yup, he got right down mean about his demands....
Ha! And if you believe that, I have an elephant in my back yard. No really, I do.....


I delivered this dessert to my laid-up Minister and he was nice enough to share. So yes, I did get to taste this amazing dessert. I will for sure be making this over and over and over and over.
But I think I will experiment with it and try different fruit flavors. I bet this would be awesome in blueberry.
Even though I didn't get a piece of this plated for you, I tried my best to get a picture of the different layers that showed through the dish. Pretty, huh?

Strawberry/Peach Cream Dessert

1 package Pecan Sandies cookies, crushed
1/2 c. butter, melted

1/2 c. Domino Light sugar blend
1 pkg. (3 oz.) strawberry jell-o
2 TBS cornstarch
1 can (12 oz.) lemon/lime soda
1 pkg (8 oz.) cream cheese, soft
1 c. confectioners' sugar
1 carton (8 oz.) frozen whipped topping, thawed
Sliced fresh strawberries and frozen (thawed) peaches to equal 6 c.

In a small bowl, combine the cookie crumbs and butter; press into the bottom of an ungreased 13 x 9 inch dish.
In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, gelatin and cornstarch; stir in soda until smooth. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 5 - 7 minutes or until slightly thickened. Cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally.
Mean while, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Beat in whipped cream until blended. Spread over crust. Combine strawberries, peaches, and pineapple juice. Arrange over cream cheese layer. Pour gelatin mixture over top. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
