Ingredients

  • 15 oz sugar cookies
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 6 tbsp butter melted
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 lb fresh strawberries

Instructions

  • Crush 10 oz of sugar cookies in a food processor.
  • Add in the melted butter and pulse until evenly incorporated into the crushed cookies.
  • Press the mixture out evenly into the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish that's been sprayed with non stick cooking spray.
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 20-30 minutes. Make sure to watch that the crust doesn't burn or overly brown. Remove the pan from the oven and set it aside to cool completely.
  • Wash, hull and slice the strawberries.
  • Add the cream and sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer, use the whip attachment to beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Add the cream cheese to the bowl and whip again just until the cream cheese is completely incorporated. Use a spatula to gently fold in the sliced strawberries.
  • Spread the strawberry and cream mixture evenly out over top of the cooled crust.
  • Again in the food processor, crush the rest of the sugar cookies. Sprinkle the crushed cookies out over top of cream mixture.
  • Cover and place the dish in the freezer for at least an hour.
  • Remove the dish from the freezer about 15 minutes before you're ready to serve. Slice into squares and serve immediately.
