  • Heat oven to 350ºF.
  • Combine biscuit crumbs and butter; press onto bottom of 9-inch springform pan. Bake 8 min.; cool.
  • Blend 2 cups strawberries and 1 Tbsp. sugar in blender until smooth. (You should have about 1 cup strawberry purée.)
  • Beat 3 pkg. cream cheese and 1/2 cup of the remaining sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add strawberry purée and food colouring; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Pour over crust.
  • Bake 45 to 55 min. or until centre is almost set. Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cheesecake; cool cheesecake completely.
  • Beat remaining cream cheese, 1/4 cup of remaining sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gently stir in Cool Whip. Reserve 2/3 cup cream cheese mixture; spread remaining over top of cheesecake. Refrigerate cheesecake and reserved cream cheese mixture (separately) 4 hours.
  • Remove rim of pan just before serving cheesecake. Spread reserved cream cheese mixture around side of cheesecake. Press ladyfinger halves, flat sides down and rounded sides out, into cream cheese mixture as shown in photo. Slice remaining strawberries; toss with remaining sugar. Spoon over cheesecake.


Soft ladyfingers can vary in width. Depending on the size ladyfingers you purchase, you may need to adjust the number of ladyfingers needed to cover the side of the cheesecake.
