Berry Cheesecake Icebox Cake

  • SERVES: 8
  • PREP: 25 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 8 hours 25 minutes (including chilling)

A berry easy dessert that uses the best of summer berries.

This layered dessert is so stunning that you probably think it’s complicated. But it’s surprisingly easy—just press in a graham cracker crust, pour on a creamy, berry jam–swirled, cheesecake mousse, and let it set in the fridge overnight. There’s a tangy top with Greek yogurt to offset the sweetness, and juicy, fresh summer berries—whatever you like!—and mint to finish. Prepare for the oohs and ahhs when you slice in at the table at your next summer shindig.

For the crust:

3 ½ tablespoons melted butter, plus more for greasing the pan

7 whole graham crackers (18 squares)

1 tablespoon dark brown sugar

½ teaspoon fine sea salt

For the filling:

1 ¾ cups heavy cream

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, at room temperature

½ cup sugar

1 ½ cups blackberry jam

For the topping:

½ cup Greek yogurt

¼ cup confectioners’ sugar

½ teaspoon vanilla

12 ounces fresh blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, or a combo, for decorating

+ Mint, for decorating
