Karon's Summer Strawberry Cheesecake

Karon Reichert


This is a recipe that I created one day when I wanted to use just what I had on hand in the kitchen. My family really liked it, so I will be making it more often this hot summer.

How to Make Karon's Summer Strawberry Cheesecake


  1. Combine crushed graham crackers, sugar and butter together. You may need more butter if crumbs are too dry. Press crumbs into a pie plate.

  3. Dissolve a box of 3 oz. strawberry jello in 1 cup of hot water. Cool. If using fresh strawberries make jello according to directions on box and then add fresh cut strawberries. If using frozen strawberries, just add to cooled jello and let set until it is jelled. Put on top of cream cheese mixture and refrigerate until firm and cold.
