Ingredients
Chocolate Wafer Cookie Crust:
  • 2 1/2 cups chocolate wafer cookie crumbs I used Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafer Cookies
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
Strawberry Cheesecake:
  • 12 oz 1 1/2 packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups whipped cream or non-dairy whipped topping, divided
  • 1 cup strawberry sauce or strawberry pie filling, pureed (Find my strawberry sauce recipe here)
  • Optional: 3 sugar coated strawberries for garnish
Instructions
Chocolate Wafer Cookie Crust:
  1. Mix together chocolate wafer cookie crumbs, melted butter and granulated sugar. Press the mixture into the bottom and about 3/4 inch up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan. A small measuring cup can be a big help when trying to form the crust. Set aside.
Strawberry Cheesecake:
  1. Beat the softened cream cheese for two minutes. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla and mix until smooth. Fold in two cups the whipped cream or non-dairy whipped topping. Gently stir in the pureed strawberry sauce until just combined.
  2. Spread the strawberry cheesecake mixture over the crust and refrigerate for at least one hour, or overnight.
  3. Before serving remove the sides of the springform pan and use the remaining whipped cream to pipe whipped cream stars around the cheesecake.
  4. Top the strawberry cheesecake with a few strawberries rolled in granulated sugar.
