  • 35 vanilla wafer cookies (1 1/2 cups), plus more for the top
  • 5 tablespoons (70g) Challenge Unsalted Butter melted
  • 8 ounces (226g) cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup (113g) powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 8 ounce containers whipped topping thawed
  • 1-2 pounds fresh berries (strawberries & blueberries or your favorite)


  • Place cookies in a large resealable gallon size bag. Seal all but 1" of the bag (so air can escape) and crush with a rolling pin.
  • Stir cookie crumbs and melted butter with a fork. Press into an 8-inch or 9-inch square pan.
  • Add cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla to a large mixing bowl. Mix with a hand mixer until smooth, then mix in one container (8-ounces) of whipped topping. Reserve other container for topping.
  • Slice berries as desired.
  • Assemble the dessert: spread half the cheesecake mixture on top the crust. Spread half the berries on top. Cover with the remaining cheesecake mixture and top with remaining berries.
  • Top the dessert with about half the remaining whipped topping. Crush more cookies and sprinkle on top, if desired. Chill for about an hour before serving.
  • Store in refrigerator for 1-2 days.


  • Store in refrigerator.
  • Use within 1-2 days or the berries will get weepy.
  • For the crust you can use graham crackers or shortbread cookies.
  • Use any kind of fresh berry you like, but don't use frozen fruit.
