Strawberry Cheesecake in a Jar

I made these cute no-bake strawberry cheesecakes in a jar last year and they came out as cute as can be.  I found the recipe here on  I added an extra layer of strawberries in the middle and they were delicious. These would be perfect for Valentine's Day or any time of the year.  Hope you enjoy!


  • Crust:
  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 4 half pint canning jars with lids and rings
  • Cheesecake:
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 fresh strawberries, sliced
1.  Mix graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and 1/4 cup sugar together in a bowl. Press 1/4 the graham cracker mixture into the bottom of each jar.
2.  Beat cream cheese and whipped topping together with an electric mixer in a bowl until well blended. Beat 2/3 cup sugar and vanilla extract into cream cheese mixture until smooth and fluffy. Spoon 1/4 the cream cheese mixture onto graham cracker crust in each jar. Top each cheesecake with sliced strawberries. Refrigerate cheesecakes until serving time.
