Easy Strawberry Cheesecake Bars
During the summer months, we like to have quick and easy desserts for last minute bbq’s. I have shared quite a few desserts here on my blog that you can make when pressed for time. One of my favorites that I have shared is our Easy Strawberry Pie. These Easy Strawberry Cheesecake Bars are so super simple too. Since there is little prep, it is perfect when you need a dessert for picnics, BBQ’s, and potlucks.
We love No Bake Cheesecakes like our No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake. Regular No Bake Cheesecakes are easy but more difficult when you are needing a dessert that feeds a crowd. Desserts that can be transported in a basic cake pan/casserole dish are best.
These cheesecake bars were perfect for feeding our group this past weekend. The pan was gone in no time because everyone insisted on having just a small piece. That small piece turned into seconds for most of us, ha ha.
Having these bars in the pan made them simple to serve. I sliced them into squares and we were able to lift them out with a simple spatula.
The graham cracker crust with the layer of cheesecake filling paired perfectly with the strawberries.
To make this easy crowd pleasing cheesecake dessert, you will need cream cheese, graham crackers, sugar, butter, Cool-Whip, and pie filling. I used a strawberry pie filling because we love strawberries. You could also use blueberry, cherry, or even peach pie filling.
4 cup crushed Graham Crackers
1/2 cup melted Butter
1 cup Sugar (1/2 + 1/2)
16 oz softened Cream Cheese
8 oz thawed Whipped Topping (Cool Whip)
2 tsp Vanilla
(2) 21 oz can Strawberry Pie Filling (or any flavor you choose)
Preheat oven to 400.
Grease 13×9 baking dish.
Mix together graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and 1/2 cup sugar until blended.
Press mixture into prepared dish firmly to form crust.
Bake 10 minutes until edges are browned
Allow to completely cool.
Beat together cream cheese, remaining 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla until blended and creamy.
Fold in whipped topping until combined.
Spread mixture into cooled crust. Chill in freezer or refrigerator for 10-15 minutes.
Spoon/spread strawberry topping on top of cream cheese layer.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
