4 cups frozen unsweetened cherries
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
8 ounces light cream cheese
1 cup light sour cream
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
10 chocolate wafer cookies, finely crumbled
- Combine the cherries, sugar, cornstarch, and lemon zest in a saucepan. Cook over low heat until thickened. Cool.
- Meanwhile, use an electric mixer or food processor to combine the vanilla, cream cheese and sour cream. With the machine running, slowly mix in the confectioners’ sugar.
- To assemble: fill each of four large wine goblets or parfait glasses with the layers, starting with a spoonful of the cheese mixture, then crumbs, followed by a layer of the cherries. Continue the pattern, using the remaining ingredients. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes, or make up to a day in advance
