PieDay Friday-Quick Strawberry Cheesecake

This is a quick and easy dessert you can whip together when you need something fast and yummy. It takes about 5 minutes to put together from start to finish but thanks to the ready-prepared cheesecake filling, no one would know. You can certainly make your own cheesecake filling and pie crust, this particular recipe is just about keeping it simple, speedy and scrumptious!



Tips:
  • The cheesecake filling is made by Kraft's Philadelphia (cream cheese) label. It can be found in most super markets near regular cream cheese or refrigerated pudding.
  • Any flavor gelatin will work. For Indepence Day try using or layering a red color gelatin, a blue colored gelatin and regular unflavored cheesecake.


Super Quick Strawberry Cheesecake

1 8" Graham cracker crust (or 6 mini)
1 container Philadelphia brand Cheesecake Filling
1 3oz package Strawberry gelatin
stawberries/blueberries for garnish, optional

In a medium mixing bowl, stir the strawberry gelatin into the cheesecake filling until well blended. Ladle into pie crust/s. Garnish as desired. Enjoy immediately or refrigerate until ready to use.
