Mason Jar Strawberry Cheesecake

This mason jar strawberry cheesecake recipe is very easy to make and looks so pretty to serve and is delicious.

Every now and again, you come across a recipe that you know is going to be one you’ll probably be making quite often.

In this case, I was just experimenting one day with  layering desserts in this one mason jar that I had just picked up at the craft store. I made this one first since there was an abundance of fresh strawberries in my fridge and plenty of cake mixes in my pantry.

Cake mixes are always in my pantry along with my favorite ingredient of all, that being, Bisquick.

But, that’s another story. As long as I mentioned it, I’ll be sure to post a few recipes made with both Bisquick and cake mixes. I guess the point I’m making is both make for quick and easy recipes that always come out with great results.

This mason jar strawberry cheesecake recipe is also a versatile one too.

Recently when friends were planning on stopping over for dessert I decided to make these. My friend happens to be gluten free.

No problem at all. You can easily swap out a gluten free cake mix in place of a regular one.

You can also swap out a sugar free cake mix and change things around by replacing a vanilla cake mix for a chocolate one. The combo of strawberries and chocolate cake is really good and tasty.

I was even thinking of a lemon cake mix. That combination is always a winner and so many of us love lemon cakes with fresh strawberries.

I find that strawberries are not just a spring or summer fruit.

Sometimes during the winter months strawberries go on sale and I’ll make this strawberry cheesecake in a jiffy for a weeknight treat. Check out how easy it is to make a yummy layered dessert.

Mason Jar Strawberry Cheesecake

Yield: about 8 individual servings

Here’s what you’ll need..

Ingredients:

  • one box vanilla cake mix, I used Betty Crocker regular or gluten free (plus ingredients stated on box. In the gluten free, you’ll add  what’s listed, eggs, butter, water, vanilla extract (1 to 2 teaspoons), for a regular cake mix, you can use what’s listed but, sometimes I like to use equal amount of butter instead of the oil in addition to 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.)
  • 6 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs, regular or gluten free
  • 24 oz Philadelphia Cheesecake No-Bake Filling
  • Reddi-wip or any brand whipped cream for topping, this can be optional. (If adding, add just before serving, this kind of canned whipped cream does not hold up after a while. You can always make homemade or even a non dairy whipped topping such as Cool Whip or TruWhip. Just make sure it’s thawed out first.

Here’s how to make mason jar strawberry cheesecake…

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray the bottom of a 9×9 baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, prepare the cake mix as directed on box with the eggs, butter, water, and vanilla extract. Mix until evenly combined and there are no more lumps. I used a wire whisk. You can use a hand held mixer if you want.
  3. Pour the batter into the baking pan and bake as directed on package or until golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  4. When cake is finished, remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack for at least 35 minutes or longer. If you want a cooler and firmer cake (easier to cut into squares), you can place in the fridge to chill. Wait until you have cooled on the wire rack for at least 35 minutes. Cut the cooled cake into small squares and set aside.
  5. Rinse and slice the strawberries and set aside and have the graham cracker crumbs ready to go as well.
  6. It’s now time to assemble the mason jars. Start with the cake pieces on the bottom then strawberry slices over that and the cheesecake filling dolloped over the strawberries. Top with graham cracker crumbs. Top with more strawberry slices and some whipped cream. Remember only add the whipped cream when ready to serve.

As promised, here are a few delectable and easy desserts made with cake mixes and Bisquick…
