Fluffy Cream Cheese Dessert

When I was little, I loved it when my Mom made treats.  We would always stand around the kitchen counter and wait until she was done mixing so we could lick the batter out of the bowl or from the beaters.  Now that I have my own kids, I find them doing the same thing with this yummy treat!  I will tell you… they licked their beaters and spoons clean!  This dessert turned out delicious!

    Easy to make. Pretty presentation. Tastes delicious. Everyone wanted a second piece. The only problem was that the "crust" on the bottom was all crumbles even though I used an extra teaspoon of melted butter and pressed on it firmly. Any suggestions?
    • Just dropped in to say thanks for the recipe! We just made this for the New Year's eve party and it tastes great! The only changes we made was we layered the cookies and the cream mixture. Oh and we also brushed the tops of the wafers with the pineapple juice and refrigerated it overnight.

    This fluff stuff was AMAZING!!!!!!! We're completed addicted. The only change we made was slice up some fresh strawberries and put a layer of strawberries in the middle. Incredible! We will be making this again and again. And I'll be making this for the next office potluck.

    Forgot to add to my earlier comment. Definitely let this sit overnight. We tried eating it after the 4 hour mark and it was way too sweet. I was so disappointed but the next night we tried it again after dinner and somehow the sugar really mellows out after its sat for a day. And now we LOVE it. Just a tip. :)
  4. The crust is definetly not gluten free. If you could find a recipe for a similar style crust that is gluten free the rest of the ingredients should be good. However, some powder sugars use starch as an ingredient so you will need to check the ingredient list before hand. I have seen similar recipes to this that do not even use a crust. It's just more of a fluff dessert and was still really yummy.
