Easy No-Bake Strawberry Shortbread Cheesecake Parfait


This strawberry shortbread parfait is a combination of things I just love! When strawberries are in season, my Mom and I can’t get enough so when I had the opportunity to work with a shortbread cookie brand I knew what I wanted to make!

These parfaits are so easy to put together and the cheesecake filling is creamy, tangy and delicious. Plus, it requires no baking so its a great dessert to put together even in hot weather when you don’t want to heat up the kitchen.
