Ingredients

  • 4 cups sugar cookies
  • 8 tablespoons butter 1 stick of butter
  • 1 cup mascarpone
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 Tablespoon Limoncello or juice of one lemon
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup strawberries cleaned, hulled and cut into small pieces

Instructions

  • Make the no-bake cookie crust: In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the cookies until it is finely ground. Add the butter; process until moist crumbs form. If it seems to dry, you could add a little water (or milk) a tablespoon at a time until you reach the right consistency.
  • Press cookie crumbs into the tart pans: Press this mixture into mini tart pans (4″ x 3/4″) or a 8-inch springform pan (or pie plate); press the crumbs up the sides of the pan. Reserve some crumbs to sprinkle on top of the cheese filling.
  • Chill the tarts: Place the tart pans in the refrigerator while you make the filling.
  • Prep the cheese filling: Beat together the mascarpone, sugar, vanilla and limoncello (or lemon juice) in a bowl until smooth; set aside.
  • Whip the heavy cream: Lightly whip the cream, and then fold it into the cream cheese mixture.
  • Add in the strawberries: Gently fold in the strawberry pieces.
  • Spoon into the tart pans: Spoon the cheesecake filling on top of the graham cracker crumb base and smooth with a spatula.
  • Sprinkle on crumbs: Sprinkle on each tart some more of the reserved cookie crumb mixture.
  • Chill the tarts: Place the tarts (or one normal size tart) in the refrigerator for 3 hours or overnight. The longer it chills, the easier it is to slice. Enjoy!
