Strawberry & Peach Icebox Cake

Growing up, one of my favorite desserts was my Grandma Mary’s Icebox Cake. So the inspiration for this simply yummy divine dessert comes from my Grandma Mary and my love of strawberry shortcake. Enjoy!

  • In a large bowl, add in ricotta cheese.
  • Add lemon extract to cheese (to desired taste) and mix. Set bowl aside.
