- Lightly coat a 9- inch springform pan with nonstick spray and line it with a rounded parchment paper. Set aside.
- Using a food processor, pulse the crackers into fine crumbs.
- Transfer to a medium size bowl, pour melted butter and mix well.
- Evenly spread the crumb mixture to the prepared springform pan, then press with your hands or a flat-bottomed measuring cup.
- Place in the freezer while you prepare the filling.
- In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese until very smooth.
- Add the whipped cream and sugar and beat some more until well combined.
- Scrape the filling onto the cracker crust and spread into an even and smooth layer.
- Cover tightly with plastic wrap and stick it in the freezer for 1-2 hours or until filling is firm.
Cheesecake Jello Topping:
- Use half of the water that you are instructed to use on the jello recipe box. For this recipe you need two small packs of jello. So, add 1 boiling cup of water to 2 small jello packs, mix well until jello is dissolved. Add 1 cup of cold water and mix some more.
- Pour jello mixture into the chilled cheese cake filling.
- Stick it in the fridge for 1-2 hours or until jello is nice and firm.
- Loosen the chilled cheesecake from the rim of the springform pan, then remove the rim. With a spatula, lift the cheesecake off and transfer to a serving plate carefully. Or just serve on the springform plate if that is easier for you.
- Serve cold and enjoy!
