  • 2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (375g)
  • 1/2 cup melted butter


  • 1 pound fresh strawberries* (454g)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 package unflavored gelatin (7g)
  • 3 packages cream cheese (750g or 24oz total)
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered icing sugar (180g)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream cold


  • Line a 9" Springform pan with parchment paper (optional -- just helps to remove the cheesecake when it's chilled). 
  • Combine graham cracker crumbs and butter and press into the bottom and 1" up the sides of the Springform pan. Set aside.
  • Wash and chop strawberries. Puree until smooth using a food processor or blender, then strain through a fine mesh strainer. Set aside.
  • Place cold water in a small bowl and sprinkle with gelatin. Set aside to use later.
  • In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer on high speed until smooth. 
  • Add strawberry puree, powdered sugar and vanilla and beat on medium speed until smooth. 
  • Add cream and beat on low until incorporated, then beat on high speed until thickened and fluffy -- this can take a few minutes.
  • Place gelatin in the microwave for 5 seconds on high, then stir just until dissolved. Gradually add to the filling mixture and beat until combined. 
  • Spread cheesecake filling into prepared crust and refrigerate at least 5-6 hours or overnight until thoroughly chilled and set. 
  • Garnish with whipped cream and chopped strawberries as desired.



*If using frozen strawberries, thaw and drain before pureeing, then measure out 1 cup strawberry puree.
