No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake

I made this for a barbeque that we had on Saturday and it was so good and easy!  It had a great strawberry taste and didn't feel quite as heavy as a normal cheesecake.  Not that I've really had a problem with heavy desserts before....but. Ugh. Well, you know what I mean.


2 cups graham cracker crumbs
6 tbsp butter, melted
1 cup plus 2 tbsp sugar
4 pkg (80z) cream cheese
1/2 cup strawberry preserves
2 cups fresh strawberries, chopped
1 tub (8oz) Cool Whip, thawed


Mix graham crackers, butter, and 1/4 cup sugar together.  Press into bottom of 13x9 pan. Refrigerate while making filling.

Beat cream cheese and 3/4 cup sugar until well blended.  Add in preserves and mix well.  Put strawberries in a small bowl and sprinkle 2 tbsp sugar over.  Mash strawberries with fork or potato masher.  Stir strawberries and Cool Whip into cream cheese mixture.  Spoon over crust. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm.  

Obviously we liked it....
