I’m sure you’re not too terribly surprised, Yup, Cheesecake is one of my great loves. Given the choice between it and a myriad of other desserts, I will choose cheesecake everyday and twice on Sunday.
And it’s all here, no fancy embellishments, just a humble graham cracker crust, creamy cheesecake and strawberry glaze. This is a cheesecake purist’s dream.
Graham Cracker Crust
1 package graham crackers finely crushes
1/4 cup sugar
3-4 Tbls butter or margarine melted
1 pkg cream cheese
1/3 cup powder sugar
2 cups thawed cool whip
1 lb carton of strawberries, washed and sliced
strawberry glaze or strawberry flavored Junket made up
Stir together graham crackers and sugar. Mix in melted butter completely.
Press into a pie tin going up the sides too. Bake at 300 degrees for 5-8 minutes.
Let cool before filling it. Beat cream cheese and powder sugar then fold in cool whip.
Spread cream cheese mixture in the bottom of the graham cracker crust.
Stir together strawberries and glaze then pour strawberries over the cream cheese layer.
Let chill for a few hours then ENJOY!
