Makes 6 jars


1 ¼ cups graham cracker crumbs

¼ cup melted butter

1 cup heavy (35%MF) cream

4 ounces room temperature cream cheese

½ cup confectioners’ sugar

1 cup strawberry jam


  • In a small bowl, stir together graham crumbs, melted butter, and brown until well combined, then evenly divide mixture into six 1-cup mason jars, gently pressing down to pack crumbs on the bottom.
  • Place jars on a rimmed baking sheet and bake in preheated 350F oven until crumbs set, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk cream to soft peaks. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, beat together cream cheese and icing sugar until smooth, then fold in reserved whipped cream until well combined and spoon mixture into jars.
  • Top each cheesecake with strawberry jam, then refrigerate until ready to serve.
