No Bake Cheesecake

For a quick and easy dessert without the fuss, I made this no bake cheesecake which I portioned out into individual servings. This was great as it freed up my oven for other things that needed to bake.

Cheesecake filling:
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese (soft) .
1/3 c sugar
2 c whipped cream

1 1/2 cups prepared graham cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons melted butter

4 individual serving dishes or shallow pans

Whip cream cheese & sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until smooth. Gently stir in the whipped cream; set aside.

Combine the ingredients for the crust in a medium bowl. Press 1/4 of the crumb mixture into each individual serving dish.

Spoon the filling into prepared serving dishes & refrigerate for at least 2 hrs.

Before serving, top with a sliced strawberry.
