Jennifer's Layered Strawberry Cheesecake Dessert

If I'm lucky  this will firm up in the fridge. Our WalMart doesn't carry Cheesecake Instant Pudding and their Cool Whip is Frozen. So I improvised. I used 1/2 of the frozen Cool Whip (4 oz) and 1/2 of the Philadelphia Cheesecake mixture that you can put in a pie shell and let firm up.
If it doesn't firm up, I guess we'll eat it with a straw and spoon :)

2 lb. strawberries
2 sleeves graham crackers
1 -8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, room temperature
1 -14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
2- 3.4 oz. pkg. instant cheesecake flavored pudding
3 cu. milk
1- 12 oz. carton whipped topping, divided

Wash, cut tops off of strawberries and slice them 1/4 inch thick then set aside. 
Line bottom of a 3-quart 13×9 baking dish with graham crackers and set aside. 
Combine cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk in a large bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. 
Add pudding mixes and milk then continue mixing on low for 4-5 minutes or until mixture starts to thicken. 
Fold in 2 cups whipped topping until smooth. 
Pour half of the cream cheese mixture over graham crackers. 
Arrange a single layer of strawberry slices over cream cheese mixture. 
Top strawberries with another layer of graham crackers then cover with remaining cream cheese mixture. 
Top cream cheese mixture with another layer of strawberries.
Cover and refrigerate for 6-8 hours. When serving, top with remaining whipped topping. Crush remaining graham crackers and sprinkle crumbs over the top

ZenDoodle - - - LOTS of pictures - - - Jan & Feb 2020

I am addicted. If there were a 12-Step program for Zendoodlers I would have to sign up. Lately, I've been doing at least one a day. Sometimes I will get two done. 

I hope you enjoy these. Hopefully you will be able to tell I've improved.

 I LOVE doing my hand. 
Each time I do one it is totally different from the last.

See, another hand :)

 This was a project from class in Feb.

 The hubby did the butterfly and the peacock.

Hand #3, so far, I think.  LOLOL

LOVE doing these flowers. Each one comes out different.

Guess what? Another hand.

 YEARS ago I did a cross stitch angel in "blackwork."
With it sitting by the fireplace, I tried to do a Zendoodle Angel.

 Gonna see several circle pix.

Oh No, another hand!

Fell in love with doing brooms too. 
The "texture" I could get amazed me.

 I need to do more heads. 
Been a while since I have done one.

LOVE everything about this BUT the head. 
I did it over several times.

 Circles again!
