Are you looking for individual desserts to serve at your next party or holiday? If so you must check out No Bake Cherry Cheesecake In A Jar! I love serving desserts in ball canning jars. It makes the desserts easy to serve and I know I have enough when I make individual serving portions. Not only that they are adorable!
First start by crushing your graham crackers with a rolling pin or food processor.
Combine with butter and then press into the bottom of the jar to form the crust.
After you prepare your filling place it into a zippered bag to then fill your jars with ease.
Finally decorate the jar with the fruit topping of your choice. I chose Cherry but you could use Blueberry, Peach, Blackberry. The sky is really the limit! Then add raffia or ribbon of your choice. You are ready to serve these delicious desserts!
