Strawberry Parfaits

People just dont eat alot of dessert anymore. We see it all the time at our parties. This past year we started serving mini parfaits in shot glasses with demitasse spoons. Everyone loved them. They were small enough so one could avoid feeling sinful, yet delicious enough to satisfy the sweet tooth.

4 cups sliced strawberries
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup amaretti cookie crumbs ( like stella doro breakfast treats)
1/2 cup whipped topping ( you should make, but can buy)

Place strawberry slices and sugar in a blender and blend until smooth.

Combine ricotta, cream cheese, powdered sugar, water, and vanilla in a medium bowl; stir well with a whisk.
Spoon 2 tablespoons cookie crumbs into each of the parfait glasses. Top each portion with 2 tablespoons strawberry puree, , and 3 tablespoons ricotta mixture; repeat the layers.
