How to prepare Strawberry Yum Yum?
You should start with preparing strawberry filling, which is actually, very quick and easy. Wash and clean strawberries, first and then slice them. In a medium dish combine strawberries, lemon juice and sugar and cook them at medium heat. Meanwhile, combine cornstarch and water in a small dish, then add to strawberry mixture, as soon as it starts boiling. Stir well and boil until it thickens, then remove from heat and let cool at a room temperature.
To prepare crust – Combine graham cracker crumbs with melted butter saving 1/2 cup for later, while pressing the rest on the bottom of 9×13 inch pan.
To prepare whipped cream – beat heavy whipping cream with 2 spoonful of sugar and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.
Prepare cheesecake filling – start by beating cream cheese and powdered sugar until it gets smooth. Next, fold in 1/3 whipped cream and spread over the graham cracker crust.
Strawberry filling comes next, just make sure that it´s completely cooled and we finish with whipped cream layer and top with 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs and fresh strawberries.
