  • 2 pounds of strawberries
  • 2 rows of graham crackers
  • 1 (8-ounce) package of cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 (14-ounce) can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 (3.4-ounce) packages of instant cheesecake pudding mix
  • 3 cups of milk
  • 1 (12-ounce) container of whipped topping, divided


Step 1: Prepare the Strawberries and Graham Crackers

  1. Slice the Strawberries: Remove the tops, wash, and slice the strawberries into 1/4 inch thick pieces. Set the slices aside.
  2. Layer the Graham Crackers: Line the bottom of a 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish with graham crackers. Set this dish aside.

Step 2: Make the Cream Cheese Mixture

  1. Blend Cream Cheese and Condensed Milk: In a large bowl, mix the cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk. Use a mixer to beat the mixture until it is smooth and fluffy.
  2. Add Pudding Mix and Milk: Gradually add the milk and pudding mix. Mix on low for another 4 to 5 minutes, or until the mixture starts to thicken.
  3. Incorporate Whipped Topping: Fold in 2 cups of whipped topping until the mixture is smooth.

Step 3: Assemble the Cake

  1. Layer with Cream Cheese Mixture: Spread half of the cream cheese mixture over the graham crackers in the baking dish.
  2. Add Strawberry Layer: Arrange a single layer of strawberry slices on top of the cream cheese mixture.
  3. Repeat Layers: Add another layer of graham crackers on top of the strawberries, then spread the remaining cream cheese mixture over the graham crackers.
  4. Top with Strawberries: Add another layer of strawberries on top of the cream cheese mixture.

Step 4: Chill and Serve

  1. Chill the Cake: Cover the dish and refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours, allowing the layers to set.
  2. Final Touch: Before serving, spread the remaining whipped topping over the cake. Crumble the leftover graham crackers and sprinkle the crumbs on top for added texture.
