These Strawberry Cheesecake Bars are an easy treat to make! This creamy cheesecake with a graham cracker crust and strawberries is a great combination.
Hi, I’m Christy from The Girl Who Ate Everything and I’m excited to be here to share an awesome recipe with you today. This recipe feels like summer and so does the weather here in Florida.
I’ve always loved the combination of strawberries and cheesecake but whenever I’ve tried to bake the strawberries in the cheesecake, it creates a mushy mess.
For this cheesecake, I used strawberry jam for that strawberry flavor and swirled on top.
I like to add freshly sliced strawberries to compliment the dish even more!
Will Cheesecake Set Without Gelatine?
Some no-bake cheesecakes are made with gelatin.
Gelatin is what makes them set.
Other no bake cheesecake is made with cream cheese or a mixture of cream cheese and whipped cream.
This type of cheesecake will set firmly without gelatin.
Do You Have To Use Graham Cracker Crust With Cheesecake?
Although cheesecake usually has a graham cracker crust, it doesn’t have to be a graham cracker crust.
An alternative crust is usually prepared with a mixture of sugar, butter, eggs, and flour.
Can Cheesecake Bars Be Frozen?
Cheesecake bars can be frozen for up to 3 months.
Cut the bars and place them on a cookie sheet in the freezer.
When they are frozen, wrap them in plastic wrap or place them in freezer bags.
