Recipe

For the Cookie Crust

  • 2 cups shortbread, or graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/ 2 cup unsalted butter, melted

For the Strawberry Cheesecake Filling

  • 2 (8 ounce) block cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/ 4 cups strawberries, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whipped cream, or whipped topping

Method

  • Step 1

    To make the cookie crust: Line an 8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper leaving some outside of the pan. Next, in a medium sized bowl whisk cookie crumbs, granulated sugar and melted butter together until combined. Press cookie mixture into the bottom of the pan. Refrigerate for 45-60 minutes.

  • Step 2

    To make the cheesecake filling: While cookie crust chills, add cream cheese, sugar, strawberries and vanilla to Vitamix. Blend mixture starting at Variable 1 and going up to Variable 9 and blend until smooth. If needed, use the tamper to push all the ingredients down towards the blades. This will insure everything is blended evenly and smoothly.

  • Step 3

    Add half of whipped cream to cheesecake filling and gently fold in using a spatula. Repeat with remaining whipped cream.

  • Step 4

    Remove baking pan with crust from refrigerator and pour filling into baking pan and smooth with a spatula. Freeze cheesecake for at least 4 hours then use a hot knife cut into 3 rows horizontally and vertically creating 9 squares.
