Want to hear something a little crazy about this recipe?

I once smuggled an entire tart into a movie theater.

I posted a picture on Instagram and a friend of mine jokingly asked me to bring it to our girls’ night out. For kicks, I did! I grabbed my biggest purse, plus some forks and plates and my friends and I ate every last bite during the previews! It was definitely an experience I will never forget!

for the crust -

  • 16 oz Sugar Cookie Dough store-bought or homemade

for the cheesecake:

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 6 oz strawberry greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • zest and juice of 1/2 lemon

for the strawberry topping:

  • 2 lbs strawberries washed and hulled
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp strawberry Jell-o powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease and flour 2 tart dishes. Divide sugar cookie dough in half. Roll each half into a circle just bigger than the dish (roll it out onto parchment...makes transfer much easier), then press the dough into the dish. Repeat for second dish.
  3. Bake until edges are lightly browned, 10-15 minutes. Recipes and crust thickness will vary, so watch them after 10 minutes so they don't overbake. Cool.
  4. Add the cheesecake ingredients to a medium mixing bowl, and mix until thoroughly combined. Pour half of the cheesecake mixture into each cooked and cooled sugar cookie crust.
  5. Cover and refrigerate until cheesecake is set.
  6. Arrange strawberries in desired pattern on the cheesecake.
  7. In a medium saucepan, combine the water, sugar and cornstarch, and boil until clear.
  8. Remove from heat and add the Jell-o powder. Thoroughly combine.
  9. With a pastry brush, brush the Jello-o mixtures over the strawberries. If desired, cover the exposed cheesecake edges (or leave as-is, depending on the look you're going for!).
  10. Return to refrigerator until ready to serve.

Recipe Notes

If you are making this a day in advance, try brushing the inside of the cooled sugar cookie crust with melted white chocolate. This will provide a barrier, preventing the moist cheesecake filling from making the crust too soft. Plus, chocolate! Bonus.
