Strawberry Cheesecake Dessert

Oh hello there! (In my best Mrs. Doubtfire voice)

I haven’t had the time to make anything for Christmas yet, but this is on my to-do list is to make this strawberry cheesecake dessert. It will be a baked crust, with cheesecake in the middle, and jello on the top because it’s Winter now, and fresh fruits are expensive to come by now in Canada.

So the recipe of deliciousness is as follows:

Ingredients:

Crust

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 stick (half cup) of butter
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar

Filling

  • 1 package (8 oz) of cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Top

  • Strawberry jello (follow instructions on the package)

To-do:

Mix thoroughly the crust ingredients and pat in to a baking pan. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Blend the filling ingredients until smooth. Spread evenly over the cooled cooked crust. Allow to cool in the fridge.

While that’s cooling, make the Jello! And then wait a bit for the temperature to drop down so it’s not so steamy anymore, and then pour over the cream cheese.

Carefully transfer the whole pan into the fridge. Allow enough time for the Jello to set.

Devour!

Serves as many as many squares as each person will eat.
