  • Mix sugar cookie mix, butter, and egg together in a large bowl until a soft dough forms; press evenly into prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until crust is light golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

  • Beat cream cheese using an electric mixer on medium speed in a bowl until smooth. Add whipped topping and stir until smooth; spread over crust. Refrigerate.

  • Mix sugar and cornstarch together in a 2-quart saucepan; add 1 cup strawberries, water, and vanilla extract. Cook and stir strawberry mixture, mashing strawberries with spoon while cooking, over medium heat until strawberries are softened and mixture is thickened, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Stir food coloring into strawberry mixture and remove from heat; cool for 10 minutes. Gently stir remaining 3 cups strawberries into strawberry mixture; spoon over cream cheese filling. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour. Serve within 4 hours.

This is so good! I've made it several times. I bake my Cooke dough a little longer simply bc it does tend to go soft after a few hours. This is a hit every time. I also skip the red food coloring bc it's pretty without it. Read More

This was nice. Hubby loves it and keeps going back for more so that's good. I didn't use the red food colouring as the strawberries made it plenty red itself. Will make again if I have a bunch of strawberries to use up. Read More

I made this dessert for a Bunco party at my house. I went by the recipe posted and it was easy to make and was a hit at the party. My crust was a little hard so next time I probably won't bake it as long. Even with the hard crust it was still good. I will be making this again. Read More
