LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Deanna Fleming with Catering Creations shared this recipe for a striped fruit dessert.

Striped Fruit Dessert

3 C finely crushed graham cracker crumbs
½ C white sugar
¾ C {1 ½ sticks} melted butter
½ t cinnamon {heaping tsp}

Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar, melted butter or margarine, and cinnamon until well blended. Press mixture into the bottom of two 8 or 9-inch pie plates or one 9×13-inch baking dish. Bake at 375 degrees F for 7-10 minutes. Cool completely.
While it's cooling, get your whipped cream made.

Whipped Cream (You can use store bought whipped cream):
1 pint {or 2 C} heavy whipping cream
2 T sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

Be sure to pop your bowl & whisk/beaters in freezer for a few minutes for best results. Whip heavy cream until stiff peaks are just about to form. Beat in vanilla and sugar until peaks form. You can adjust sugar/vanilla amounts to your liking. Do not over beat. If you under beat you can beat again before serving or using. You will likely have a little left over-2 cups of heavy whipping cream will yield 4 cups of whipped cream-but don't worry it won't be around long!

Cream Cheese Filling:
1 {8 ounce} package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cold milk
Whip cream cheese, sugar, and milk till smooth. Add 1/4 cup of your whipped cream.
Layer crust, cream cheese mixture, fresh blueberries and strawberries, and dollop with whipped cream. ENJOY!!!
