Ingredients

Graham Cracker Crust

  • 1 1/2 c graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 TB granulated sugar
  • 6 TB melted butter

Cheesecake Layer

  • 1 packet gelatin (about 2 1/4 tsp)
  • 1/4 c boiling water
  • 24 oz cream cheese softened to room temp
  • 1 3/4 c powdered sugar sifted
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 c plain Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 1 1/2 c frozen whipped topping thawed

Strawberry Topping

  • 16 oz fresh strawberries
  • 1/3 c granulated sugar
  • whipped cream for serving optional

Instructions

For the Graham Cracker Crust

  1. Lightly grease a 9 inch springform pan with cooking spray.

  2. In a medium bowl stir together the graham crumbs, 2 tablespoons sugar, and melted butter.

  3. Press into the bottom of the springform pan, making a slight lip up the sides of the pan.

  4. Place in the freezer while you make the cream cheese layer.

For the Cheesecake Layer

  1. In a small bowl dissolve the gelatin in the boiling water and let sit while you make the filling.

  2. In a large bowl beat the cream cheese until very soft. Then mix in the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, lemon juice, sour cream and gelatin mixture.

  3. Turn off the mixer and gently fold in the whipped topping.

  4. Then take the springform pan out of the freezer and spoon the cheesecake layer overtop, smoothing the top with a flat-edge knife or spatula.

  5. Set in the fridge to chill for at least 6 hours, or overnight. You can also speed up this process by placing the cheesecake in the freezer.

For the Sugared Strawberries

  1. A few hours before you plan to serve the cheesecake, you can make the sugared strawberries. This brings out the juices in the strawberries.

  2. First, hull the strawberries then cut them into quarters or eighths. Toss the strawberries with the sugar, and then place in a container in the fridge.

  3. To serve the cheesecake, take it out of the fridge and trace the edges of the springform pan with a thin sharp knife. Then unclamp the pan and cut into pieces.

  4. Top with whipped cream and sugared berries.
