Ingredients
  

Crust

  • 8 graham cracker sheets finely crushed
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter melted

Cheesecake

  • 8-10 medium strawberries
  • 16 oz Cream Cheese softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • additional strawberries for garnishing

Instructions
 

Crust

  • Prepare an 8x8 baking pan by lining it with parchment paper. Then, spray the parchemnt paper with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a medium sized bowl, combine the crushed graham crackers, powdered sugar, and melted butter. Stir the ingredients until combined.
  • Add the mixture to the baking pan and using a spatula, or the bottom of a cup, press the mixture into the bottom of the pan.
  • Place in the freezer and freeze for 10-12 minutes.

Cheesecake

  • While the crust is in the freezer, chop the strawberries and place in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 25-30 seconds or until warm. Remove from microwave and mash the warm strawberries with a fork for about 30 seconds.
  • Once the strawberries are mashed, pour into a fine mesh strainer with a bowl underneath. Gently press the strawberries into the strainer and allow the juice to drip into the bowl. This makes about 3 to 4 tablespoons of strawberry juice. Discard the strawberry pulp and seeds.
  • Using a stand or hand mixer on medium speed, beat together the cream cheese, 1 cup powdered sugar, and vanilla just until combined.
  • Using a spatula or spoon, spread the cream cheese mixture evenly on top of the graham cracker crust.
  • Place back into the freezer and freeze for 2-3 hours.
  • After it is frozen, transfer the cheesecake onto a cutting board. Then, use a sharp knife cut into squares.
  • As garnishment, you can place a strawberry slice on top.
  • The bars are best served chilled.
