No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake

(Recipe by Lisa at Garnish the Lemon)

 Ingredients
  • 20 chocolate sandwich cookies, ground into crumbs by a food processor
  • 4 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1 cup of whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar
  • 1 cup of fresh strawberries, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup of fresh strawberries, sliced
  • a few strawberries cut in half for garnish
 Directions
  1. To make this easy cheesecake, start by lining the bottom of an 8 x 8 pan with aluminum foil.
  2. In a small bowl, combine cookie sandwich crumbs with melted butter. Pour the cookie crumb mixture into the bottom of the pan and press with fingers until mixture is compacted. Freeze for 15 minutes.
  3. In a medium bowl, place cream cheese and sugar and mix until light and fluffy. Add sour cream and mix until combined.
  4. Make whipped cream by whipping the cream until you form stiff peaks. Add powdered sugar carefully.
  5. Fold in the homemade whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture, and stir until combined. Add 1 cup coarsely chopped strawberries and stir to combine.
  6. Pour half of the cream cheese filling on top of the crust. Scatter the sliced strawberries on top. Then add the remaining cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate for at least 5 hours or until set.
  7. Garnish the top of the cheesecake with extra strawberries. Cut into squares and serve immediately.
