Infusing Strawberry Jello for a Burst of Flavor

Dissolve 1 small box (3.3 oz) of Strawberry Jello in 1 cup of boiling water. Allow the mixture to cool slightly while you prepare the remaining ingredients.

Cream Cheese: The Heart of the Cheesecake

In a mixing bowl, beat 16 oz of softened cream cheese with 3/4 cup of granulated sugar until smooth and creamy. Gradually add the cooled strawberry Jello mixture and continue to beat until well combined.

Heavy Whipping Cream and Powdered Sugar for Heavenly Whipped Cream

In a separate bowl, whip 2 cups of heavy whipping cream until soft peaks form. Gradually add 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and continue to whip until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until fully incorporated.

Strawberry Wafer Cookies for an Extra Crunchy Surprise

Fold in 10 crushed strawberry wafer cookies for an added layer of texture and flavor. Pour the filling over the prepared crust, spreading it evenly with a spatula.

Topping Off with Whipped Cream

Whipped Topping: The Crowning Glory

Finish your cheesecake with a generous dollop of whipped topping. Transfer half a small tub of thawed whipped topping into a pastry bag fitted with a star tip, such as the Wilton 1M tip. Pipe decorative swirls of whipped cream around the edges of the cheesecake for an elegant finishing touch.
