Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe has been in my family for a very long time. My Mom made it and she passed it on, I really love strawberries and I make a lot of desserts, using strawberries during the short strawberry season we have here. This recipe is very pretty and combines my two favorite things, cheesecake and strawberries.

Ingredients You'll Need

2-1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
1 package (3 ounces) strawberry gelatin
1 cup boiling water
3/4 cup cold water
1 quart fresh strawberries, sliced


In a bowl, combine the cracker crumbs and butter. Press onto the bottom and 1-in. up the sides of a greased 13-in.x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Pour into the crust.

Bake at 350 F. for 30-35 minutes or until center is almost set. Carefully spread sour cream over the top. Bake 10 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir in cold water. Refrigerate for 45 minutes or until thickened but not set.

Carefully pour a third of the gelatin over sour cream layer. Arrange strawberries over gelatin; pour remaining gelatin over berries. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or until set. Yield: 12-15 servings.
