Dessert Lasagna


I like re-imagining recipes. Why not re-imagine lasagna into a dessert? It's been done before and it will be done again. Here is one dessert lasagna that we happily discovered.

Strawberry Cheesecake Lasagna


2 (8 oz) cubes cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 (16 oz) tub whipped topping
14 graham crackers
2 (10 oz) jars Cascadian Farm strawberry jam
2 cups frozen sliced strawberries
2 cups fresh (or thawed) sliced strawberries
Non-stick coconut oil spray


In a stand mixer fitted with whisk attachment, cream together cream cheese and sugar. Slowly add the amaretto and whipped topping, beating until well combined. Set aside.

Spray the bottom of 9x13-inch baking dish with non-stick spray, line with 7 graham crackers. Spread half of the cream cheese mixture on top of the graham crackers.

In a large bowl, microwave one jar of jam until warm, then stir in half of the strawberries. Spread this mixture on top of the cream cheese layer. Top with a second layer of graham crackers and cream cheese. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Just before serving, microwave second bottle of jam until warm and stir in fresh or thawed strawberries. Allow to cool until no longer warm to the touch, then spread across the top of the cake. Slice and serve.

Notes: This was very yummy. You can't go wrong with cream cheese and strawberries.

  1. For me the jury is still out on these graham cracker layer desserts. I'm not sure that I'm a lover of them. But I keep seeing more recipes, so we may have to try more.
