This recipe is super simple and the perfect dessert to take to any party. Strawberries and cream cheese is just the perfect combination for me, especially with summer so close. I made the recipe into cupcakes; I just think it makes it cute and elegant but you can also make it in a 13 x 9 in pan. I would suggest that if you are going to bring this dessert to a party.
