I know what your Memorial Day needs! A cheesecake. A NO BAKE Cookies and Cream Cheesecake. A Cookies and Cream Cheesecake topped with strawberries.

And I just happen to have one ready for you… 

Hello, my pals! TGIF! There’s a 3 day weekend ahead of us and I am ready to celebrate ONLY by sleeping in. That is all I ask for.

Well, that’s a 50% lie. What reality says is that I need, 1) sleep, and 2) a cheesecake.

Look, it can’t be celery and chicken around here all of the time. This girl needs cheesecake, and she needs it now. And if we can stick to a serving size, we might be able to sneak in 2 slices.

That’s definitely NOT how it works, but it’s a Holiday – a time to remember the fallen, a time to leave your worries behind, and a time to live on the edge. ✌

I recently picked up a few boxes of Trader Joe’s gluten free Joe Joe’s (TJ’s version of Oreos, but gluten free), and as I was looking down that box of perfectly stacked cookies, the only thing I wanted was to eat them all. Ain’t gonna lie. Those things are dangerous.

To keep myself from doing the unthinkable, I decided on a dessert that would take care of all the cookies + the hungry family, and I wouldn’t be the only one eating.

Enter whipped cream + whipped cream cheese.

No whipped topping around here, but if you want to use that instead of making your own whipped cream, go awwwn and do it. Life should be easy, even if it means using cool whip once in a greeeeeeat while.

Once you combine those guys together, the only thing left is to pour the creaminess result over the chocolate crust and freeze until set.

Add strawberries on top, and serve. Blueberries, too! To fit with the whole red, white, and blue theme. Just an idea. Wish I had thought of it before.

P.S. NOT into cookie crusts? Hop on over and get the recipe for my No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Salad ❤

ENJOY!

    I could totally deal with a piece of this right now! Such a perfect summer dessert idea!

  3. Love all of your recipes, especially the no-bake ones! I have a request. Is there any way you can make the print darker? It is so light, it’s difficult to read.
