  • 16 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced

For the Strawberry Sauce:

  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, hulled and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch (optional, for thickening)

Preparation Steps

For the Crust:

  1. In a bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar. Mix until the crumbs are evenly coated.

For the Cheesecake Filling: 3. In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth.

  1. Add powdered sugar and vanilla extract, and continue to beat until well combined.
  2. Gently fold in the sliced strawberries into the cream cheese mixture.
  3. Spread the cheesecake filling over the prepared crust, smoothing the top with a spatula.

For the Strawberry Sauce: 7. In a saucepan, combine chopped strawberries, granulated sugar, and water. Cook over medium heat until the strawberries break down and release their juices.

  1. Optional: If you prefer a thicker sauce, mix cornstarch with a little water to create a slurry and add it to the strawberry mixture. Stir until the sauce thickens.
  2. Allow the strawberry sauce to cool.
  3. Pour the cooled strawberry sauce over the cheesecake filling, spreading it evenly.
  4. Refrigerate the No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake for at least 4 hours or until set.
