Cheesecake is a classic rich dessert that perfectly pairs tart cheese with sweet ingredients for a well-balanced bite. In this recipe, the crust is made with graham crackers and butter for a delicate but rich base. Unlike many traditional cheesecake recipes, this one does not have to be baked. This makes it a great recipe to prepare when it is too hot to turn on the oven or stove. Top the cheesecake with sliced fresh strawberries for a fruity and vibrant finish.

Ingredients

  • 12 graham crackers
  • 75 grams butter (melted)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 250 grams cream cheese
  • 125 milliliters milk
  • 5 gelatin (sheets)
  • cold water
  • 500 milliliters heavy cream
  • 50 grams sugar
  • 1 kilogram strawberries (cored and sliced)

Directions

  1. Crush the graham crackers in a large bowl.
  2. Mix the crackers with the melted butter and vanilla using your hands.
  3. Place the mixture in a baking pan. Carefully press down to create the pie crust. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to solidify.
  4. Place the cream cheese and the milk in a saucepan to melt on low heat.
  5. Hydrate the leaf gelatin sheets in cold water for 4 minutes. Add them to the milk and cheese. Mix thoroughly and set aside.
  6. Whip the cream and sugar. Using a rubber spatula, carefully mix with the cream cheese and milk to keep it light and fluffy.
  7. Remove the crust from the refrigerator and pour a layer of the cream cheese mixture on the crust. Add some of the strawberries. Repeat the process twice. Decorate the cheesecake with strawberries on top.
  8. Refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours to solidify and serve.

I admit that I am a cheesecake hound. When I saw this recipe I knew I had to make it since it seemed easier than other recipes I have tried. It was quick and very easy to make and had that true cheesecake taste. Thick and creamy, complemented by the sweet and bitterness of strawberries. This 5 star cheesecake is my go to recipe for all our cheesecake needs.
