2 tablespoons of melted butter

For the strawberry layer

1/2 cup of icing sugar

1. Prepare the Crumb Layer

Mix the crushed biscuits with melted butter. This will be the base of your parfaits.

Spoon a layer of the mixture into the bottom of your serving glasses or jars.

2. Make the Strawberry Layer

In a bowl, mix the diced strawberries with a tablespoon of sugar. Let them sit for about 10 minutes until they release some juices.

Spoon a layer of the strawberries over the crumb layer in your glasses.

3. Whip Up the Cheesecake Layer

In a mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, icing sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.

Gently fold in the whipped cream until well combined.

Pipe or spoon the cheesecake mixture over the strawberry layer in your glasses.

4. Chill and Serve

Pop the parfaits into the fridge for at least an hour to set.

When you’re ready to serve, you can garnish with some extra strawberries or a sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs on top for that extra touch.
