Almost No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Tart


  • 2 cups vanilla wafer cookie crumbs
  • 1/2 stick butter, melted
  • 1/4 ounce packet unflavored gelatin
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup fat free Greek-style yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup strawberry jam
  • Fresh strawberries, to serve


  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Mix together cookie crumbs and butter. Press the mixture into a 9" removable bottom tart pan, bottom and sides. Bake for 6-8 minutes and cool.
  • Filling: Combine the gelatin and water in a microwave-safe cup. Allow to set for 5 minutes or until gelatin is dissolved. Microwave for 30 seconds or until it boils.
  • In a large electric mixer bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth, scraping the bowl. Add yogurt, gelatin and vanilla and beat until smooth.


  • Beat the strawberry jam with a fork until mostly smooth. Add the jam to the cream cheese mixture and fold in with a rubber spatula. Transfer the mixture to the cooled tart shell and smooth the top. Cover and refrigerate until firm. Serve with fresh strawberries.SOURCE: Adapted from Spokesman-Review
