These no bake pineapple cheesecake shooters are a quick dessert that everyone will absolutely flip over.
I love making simple and easy bite-sized desserts. I used to do a lot of catering for weddings and parties, so I have a lot of fun foodie dishes that make desserts look fun but fancy — with almost NO prep whatsoever.
How to Make Pineapple Cheesecake Shooters
For this recipe, it is really just a handful of ingredients. I used Nairn's gluten free original biscuits to create a Graham like cracker crumble.
The cheesecake center is cream cheese and whipped topping. I whipped room temperature cream cheese with a tub of frozen whipped topping to create the perfect cheesecake like texture.
You can make this thinner by adding a little heavy cream to it, but I like mine pretty thick.
The pineapple is just fresh pineapple that I got in my Melissa's Produce box.
I ran it through my food processor for a bit to give it a crushed pineapple feel.
How to Assemble Pineapple Cheesecake Shooters
I found these cute little shooter glasses at the Dollar Tree — 6 for $1. They make the perfect little bite-sized dessert cup.
I take 2 packs of the Nairn's cookies and crush them up to make a fine ground graham cracker crumb.
I place a little in each glass. Then, I put the cream cheese mixture in a piping bag and pipe a little on top of the graham cracker crumbs. Next, I top with my crushed pineapple mixture.
Repeat the layers until you get to the top. Top with a dollop of whipped topping and a fresh pineapple tidbit for the perfect little dessert shooter.
