June is National Dairy Month, what better way to honor America’s dairy farming families, who provide us with healthy, wholesome dairy foods, than to gather your friends together and have a potluck!?

As I see it there’s only one downfall to a potluck; too many choices and not enough room in my belly!  So many delicious options, and inevitably by the time I get to the dessert table I’m stuffed!  But I still want a little something to curb my sweet tooth! Strawberry Cheesecake Dessert is the perfect sweet tooth curber!

I can’t share this recipe without telling you that Ken isn’t a fan of cheesecake.  He loves sweets but he does not care for cheesecake, EXCEPT for this one.  He loves this recipe because there is just the right amount of creamy cheesecake filling sandwiched between the salty pretzel crust (which he loves) and the fresh sweet strawberry layer!  So you think you’re not a cheesecake fan….well I’m here to tell you this recipe will make a believer out of you!!
