I took a break from trying new recipes and, well, cooking in general, for the entire month of April! I didn’t make up my meal plans for the month and I didn’t really even cook a lot! I used up a lot of the meat I had in the freezer and added noodles or rice, with a frozen vegetable and called that dinner…..that is, when they weren’t have peanut butter for the millionth time! Well, I am back on track and have my meals planned out for the whole month of May and I finished grocery shopping for the meals (using coupons, of course!)! It does feel good to be back on track! So, Monday I decided to make a new recipe I was holding on to. It sounded and looked very delicious and I had the ingredients for it!
Here’s the recipe: (of course I found it off of Pinterest)
COVER bottom of 9-inch springform pan with cookies.
BEAT cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Gradually beat in punch concentrate. Whisk in Cool Whip and crushed strawberries until well blended. Pour over cookies.
FREEZE 6 hours or until firm. Remove from freezer 15 min. before serving. Let stand at room temperature to soften slightly. Garnish with whole berries just before serving.
My cake took longer to freeze. It may have been because I was gone all day, after making the cake, to find the freezer was open just a bit. It didn’t ruin any food, it just didn’t allow for the cake to freeze! Everyone seemed to like it and didn’t complain too much they had to wait until the next day to try it!
