Strawberry Cheesecake Delight Recipe

This recipe is a delightful no-bake dessert that combines a buttery graham cracker crust, a creamy cheesecake filling, and a refreshing layer of strawberries. Perfect for summer gatherings or a sweet treat!

Ingredients:

  • For the Crust:
    • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
    • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • For the Cheesecake Filling:
    • 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened to room temperature
    • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 cup whipped topping, thawed
  • For the Strawberry Layer:
    • 1 pound fresh strawberries, sliced
    • 1 (3 ounce) package strawberry gelatin dessert mix
    • 1 cup boiling water
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Crust: In a large bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and granulated sugar. Mix until well combined and the crumbs are moistened. Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Make the Cheesecake Filling: In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the softened cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth and creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract until combined. Gently fold in the thawed whipped topping until just incorporated.
  3. Assemble the Dessert: Spread the cheesecake filling evenly over the chilled crust.
  4. Prepare the Strawberry Layer: In a small bowl, whisk together the strawberry gelatin dessert mix and boiling water until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Stir in the lemon juice and sliced strawberries. Let the strawberry mixture sit for 5 minutes to thicken slightly.
  5. Pour the strawberry mixture over the cheesecake filling.
  6. Refrigerate and Serve: Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or until the strawberry layer is set. Serve chilled and enjoy!
