No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake

No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake

Add chopped strawberries, sugar and water to a saucepan and cook until very thick and very little liquid remains. Blend until smooth.

In the same pan, add quartered strawberries, sugar, cornstarch, water, and jam and cook until just thickened. This will go on top of the strawberry cheesecake.

Press the graham cracker crumb base into a parchment lined square pan and freeze.

Whip the heavy cream until very stiff peaks form.

Beat the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth.

Add the strawberry puree and mix again until smooth.

Fold the whipped cream into the cheesecake batter in batches until no lumps remain.

Spread the batter over the frozen graham cracker crust.

Spread the thick strawberry topping over the cheesecake. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours.

Spread fresh whipped cream on top of the bars before slicing and serving.
