A friend brought these pretty parfaits to a potluck, and I just had to have the recipe. You can substitute your favorite fresh fruit, such as peaches or raspberries. —Melanie Qualls, Marysville, Washington

    This recipe is WONDERFUL!!! Strawberries... cheesecake taste... fast to make and a nice way to use strawberries! Fat is good for you as long as it's a good fat! I don't know why people write reviews on recipes based on their nutritional value. If you don't want cheesecake, which is always high in fat unless you use fat-free ingredients (NO THANKS), then look for a different dessert to suit your special diet.

    This recipe looks very pretty, but at 618 calories and 32 grams of fat for such a small dessert, you can keep it!
