Ingredients

Crust

  • 2 cups (168g) graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • ½ cup (1 stick or 113g) butter, melted
  • 1 pound whole strawberries, thinly sliced, reserving 1/4 cup to dice for garnish

Toppings

  • 2 blocks (8 ounces each) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup (125g) confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 box (3 ounces) strawberry jello mix
  • 3 cups whipped topping, divided

Instructions

Crust

  • Line an 8x8-inch baking dish with parchment paper, including up the sides of the dish.
  • In a medium bowl, add graham crackers and sugar. Mix together.
  • Add melted butter to the graham crackers and sugar. Mix until all ingredients are fully incorporated with no dry spots.
  • Press the crumbs firmly into the bottom of the lined baking dish.
  • Top the crust with sliced strawberries, reserving 5 slices to dice for the garnish. Place in the refrigerator to chill while you prepare the toppings.

Toppings

  • In a large bowl add cream cheese. Use a hand mixer on medium speed to beat the cream cheese until creamy. Add sugar, vanilla, and lemon and beat again until creamy and no lumps remain (about 3 minutes).
  • With a spatula, gently fold in 2 cups of whipped topping.
  • Remove the crust from the refrigerator. Add half of the cream cheese mixture on top of the strawberries.
  • To the remaining cream cheese mixture, fold in ¼ cup of the strawberry jello mix.
  • Add the remaining strawberry mixture to the top of the cream cheese mixture.
  • Top with remaining whipped topping.
  • Place in the refrigerator to chill for 1 hour, up to overnight.
  • When ready to serve, top with the reserved diced strawberries.
