Prepare the Crust:

Combine Ingredients: In a medium bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, and

melted butter until well combined.

Form the Crust: Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan to form an even

layer. Refrigerate while preparing the filling.


Prepare the Filling:

Whip the Cream: In a large bowl, beat 1 cup of heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Set


Cream Cheese Mixture: In another large bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth. Add the

powdered sugar and vanilla extract, and continue to beat until well combined and creamy.

Combine and Fold: Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until fully

incorporated. Fold in the chopped strawberries.

Assemble the Cake: Pour the filling over the prepared crust, spreading it out evenly. Smooth the top

with a spatula.

Prepare the Topping:

Whip the Cream: In a large bowl, beat 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream with 2 tablespoons of

powdered sugar until stiff peaks form.

Top the Cake: Spread the whipped cream over the top of the cake. Garnish with sliced fresh

strawberries and crushed freeze-dried strawberries, if using.

Chill and Serve:

Chill: Cover the cake and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight, to allow the flavors to meld and

the cake to set.

Serve: Before serving, remove the springform pan and transfer the cake to a serving platter. Slice and

enjoy the refreshing and creamy strawberry icebox cake.

Tips for Success

Chill Time: For the best results, let the cake chill overnight. This allows the flavors to fully develop and

the cake to set properly.

Fresh Ingredients: Use fresh, ripe strawberries for the best flavor and texture.

Graham Cracker Substitutes: If you don’t have graham crackers, you can use vanilla wafers or

digestive biscuits for the crust.
