Garden Busy....Strawberries and More

 Strawberry Cream Dessert for our hard working rewards.  We have been so busy with gardening, yard clean-up, organizing food storage, etc. that we all got the blessing from the "fruits" (strawberries) of our labors.

This recipe starts by making Yogurt Cheese with 1 quarts of plain yogurt.  Place yogurt into double cheesecloth (or cotton fabric), tie knots at the corners.  Hang on cabinet knobs over colander inside of a bowl.  Let hang overnight to release the whey.  Reserve the whey in refrigerator for bread, sauerkraut or animal feed.
 Make easy crust with: 1 package graham crackers, crushed
                                     1/3 cup butter, melted
                                     1/4 cup sugar
Mix and press into 9 X 13" pan.

Place strained yogurt, that is now Yogurt Cheese into mixing bowl.
Add: 1/2 cup white sugar and 3 cups pureed, fresh strawberries.  Mix well and spoon onto crust.

Whip 1-pint heavy cream.  Add; 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1 cup powdered sugar. Carefully place on top of strawberry cream layer.

Place 3 or 4 cups of fresh, sliced strawberries on top.  Refrigerate and serve.
