  • 2 packs of graham crackers
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 1 package 8-ounce package cream cheese
  • 5 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 pint strawberries sliced
  • 1/2 pint strawberries cut in half (for top of cake)
  • 1/4 cup melting chocolate wafers optional


  • Line a 9×9″ pan with the graham crackers and set aside.
  • Pour the heavy cream into a large bowl and mix with an electric mixer on medium speed until a stiff peak forms, about 4 to 5 minutes. Then add the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Mix just until smooth. Then spread 1/3 of the mixture onto the graham crackers. Then layer 1/3 of the sliced strawberries on top. Repeat with 3 layers. Save the strawberries you’re putting on top, until ready to serve.
  • Place in the refrigerator for at least one hour, to allow the graham crackers to soften. I like to place in the freezer for 30 minutes before serving, so it firms up a little bit. Then I place the top layer of strawberries on top right before serving.
  • Slice with a sharp knife and drizzle chocolate on top if desired.
