Chef Sasha's Mini Strawberry Cheesecake Bites from "Private Chefs of Beverly Hills"

Pink just isn't my jam; it's always been too overtly girly for my taste. Tasked with creating an all-pink party on tonight's episode of Private Chefs of Beverly Hills, I had to dig deep and reunite with my inner Jem in order to create food that would be truly truly truly outrageous.

This dessert is simple and easy to throw together at a moment's notice:

Mini Strawberry Cheesecake Bites
makes 6 servings
12 mini shortbread crusts (available in most grocery or specialty stores)
1 pint strawberries, hulled and diced
1/2 cup cream cheese
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
2 tablespoon strawberry jam
pink sanding sugar (optional)

Beat cream cheese, powdered sugar and strawberry jam together. Spoon cream cheese filling into shortbread crusts and top with diced strawberries. Top with pink sanding sugar or warmed strawberry jam and serve.
