My entire family loves strawberries so its no wonder they are the star in many desserts.  Recently I posted  strawberry pie and now even easier…Strawberries with Cheesecake Cream.  I am sure that my daughter isn’t happy because she has been requesting Frosty Strawberry Squares and that is next on the strawberry list I promise!  However, back to today’s dessert, its so simple and a great cheesecake alternative!  The strawberries could easily be substituted with most any fruit and of course you could serve it in any dish of your choosing!
