NO-BAKE STRAWBERRY YUM YUM

Recipe provided by: https://www.thekitchenismyplayground.com/2020/01/no-bake-strawberry-yum-yum.html

Easy creamy no-bake deliciousness at its best! Two thick fluffy layers sandwiching a layer of strawberry pie filling makes for one very tasty dessert, indeed. As a fabulous bonus -- it not only tastes great, it's super easy to make, too.
TOTAL TIME: 30 M

INGREDIENTS:

Crust:
Cream Cheese Mixture:
  • 1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 c. confectioners' sugar
  • 2 c. whipping cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract, divided
  • 3 T. granulated sugar
Strawberry Filling:

INSTRUCTIONS:

Prepare the Crust:

  1. In a bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Blend with a fork until crumbs are moistened.
  2. Set aside 2 tablespoons of crumbs to sprinkle on the top.
  3. Press crumb mixture into the bottom of a 9x9-inch pan that's been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Prepare the Cream Cheese Mixture:
  1. With an electric mixer, cream together softened cream cheese, 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract until smooth.
  2. In a separate bowl, whip the whipping cream, 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.
  3. By hand, mix together whipped cream and cream cheese mixture until well combined.
Assemble the Yum Yum Layers:
  1. Spread a little less than half the cream cheese/whipped cream mixture evenly over the crust.
  2. Drop strawberry pie filling by large spoonfuls on top of the cream cheese layer. Gently spread strawberry pie filling evenly over the cream cheese layer.
  3. Top strawberry layer with the remaining cream cheese/whipped cream mixture. Gently spread it evenly over the strawberry layer, covering it completely.
  4. Sprinkle the top with the 2 tablespoons reserved graham cracker crumbs.
  5. Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight before serving.
TRACEY'S NOTES:
  1. I buy the "premium" strawberry pie filling so there are more strawberries in the Yum Yum strawberry layer.
  2. You can substitute an 8 ounce container of Cool Whip non-dairy whipped topping for the homemade whipped cream in the cream cheese mixture if you'd like.
  3. We like our Yum Yum and its layers thick! And that's just how this recipe turns out - nice, thick creamy layers. We recommend doubling the recipe for a 9x13" pan. You could "stretch" this recipe to a 9x13" pan, but the layers will be very thin (and you would probably need to double the crust portion for it to adequately cover the bottom of the pan).
