Strawberry Cheesecake Icebox Cake

I’ve talked a bunch of times about how much I love icebox cakes. They’re make-ahead, so they’re perfect for parties or special occasions, and since they’re no-bake, they’re perfect for summer. I don’t know about you, but anytime I don’t have to turn my oven on, I’m happy.

I love icebox cakes! This one looks absolutely amazing, and so easy.

So when I went and picked 18 pounds of strawberries last week {seriously. There were so. many. strawberries. I kept telling myself I was going to stop, and then I’d see another whole section of huge, beautiful strawberries.}, I had to figure out what to do with all these berries. In addition to a crapload of strawberry jam, I decided to make a strawberry cheesecake icebox cake.

As a starting point, I used this Paula Deen recipe for Not Yo’ Mama’s Banana Pudding, which I have made a ton of times. But I made several adjustments to the recipe.

First, I used cheesecake pudding rather than vanilla, and, as usual, I added in some vanilla bean paste. You know, because vanilla bean paste is my jam.

I also obviously used sliced strawberries instead of bananas — although using both together would be awesome.

But the key to the whole operation is definitely the Pepperidge Farm Chessmen Cookies. Dave told me I was not allowed to buy them anymore because he cannot stop eating them. 

They are pretty much the most delicious cookie ever. 

And they turn into a ridiculously delicious cake when layered with the cream.

I’m pretty sure my kids each ate about 12 pieces of this. 

This is going to be one of my new go-to summer desserts.
