Cooking with Dairy

Earlier this year, I attended an event sponsored by The New England Dairy & Food Council where I joined fellow Team Dairy New England digital influencers at a fun culinary event in Boston. At the 177 Milk Street Kitchens, we had the chance to meet and cook with some New England dairy farmers using fresh, locally-produced cheeses, yogurt and cream.

New England is home to more than 1,000 dairy farming families.  Hearing our guest speakers, I’m always very impressed by the passion and dedication that our New England farm families display as they talk about their work to produce fresh, great tasting, and wholesome dairy products. More than 99% of the milk produced on New England Dairy farms is bottled or turned into cheese, butter, yogurt and ice cream sold in New England and New York.

As I prepared these No-Bake Greek Yogurt Cheesecake Squares – and as I tasted how delicious they are too – I couldn’t help but think about all of the effort that went into the wonderful fresh and nutritious ingredients I used for cooking. These farm families provide exceptional animal care and use innovative and safe technology to produce quality products for all of our families to eat.

No-Bake Greek Yogurt Cheesecake Squares

Dairy is really the star in this No-Bake Greek Yogurt Cheesecake Squares recipe.  A lightly sweet, buttery graham cracker crust is topped with a super creamy filling made with Greek yogurt, cream cheese, whipped cream, vanilla and sugar.  These cheesecake squares are sweet, but not too sweet and that distinctive tangy flavor from both the yogurt and cream cheese is perfectly complemented by fresh strawberries.

You can serve this easy no-bake cheesecake dessert slightly frozen for a firm, ice cream-like texture, or you can allow the bars to soften for a spoonable, creamy texture. (Either way is delicious!)

Description

These No-Bake Greek Yogurt Cheesecake Bars can be served slightly frozen for a firm, ice cream-like dessert. Or, they can be served fully thawed for a light and creamy dessert. The choice is yours!


Ingredients

For the Crust:

18 graham crackers (2 sleeves)

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

¼ teaspoon kosher salt

½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

For the Filling:

3 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened to room temperature

1½ cups confectioner’s sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

2 cups whole-milk Greek yogurt

1¼ cups heavy cream, chilled

For Serving:

1 pint fresh strawberries, diced


Instructions

Line a 13×9-inch baking pan with two sheets of parchment paper – the first sheet widthwise and the second sheet lengthwise – leaving about a 2-inch overhang on each edge of the paper. If necessary, cut a slit in each corner to allow the lengthwise parchment to lay flat in the pan. Set aside.

In the bowl of food processor, pulse the graham crackers until fine crumbs form. Add sugar, salt and melted butter and pulse again to fully combine. Pour the buttery crumbs into the prepared parchment-lined baking pan. Spread the crumbs evenly, pressing down to create a firm layer on the bottom of the pan. Place pan flat in freezer.

In a large mixing bowl, cream the cream cheese, confectioner’s sugar, and vanilla on high speed until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes), scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary. Add yogurt to the mixing bowl and mix on medium speed until combined.

In a separate mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. With a large spatula, fold a heaping spoonful of the whipped cream into cream cheese mixture, stirring well to combine. This will help loosen up the mixture. Fold in the remaining whipped cream with the spatula.

Spoon the filling into the chilled baking pan and spread the filling evenly. Cover the pan with a tented piece of aluminum foil and freeze at least 4 hours or overnight.

About a hour before serving, remove the pan from the freezer. Using the parchment paper overhang, carefully lift the frozen cheesecake mixture out of the pan and onto a cutting board. (Allow the cheesecake to soften slightly if necessary.) Using a long, sharp knife, cut the cheesecake into squares.

Place each square on a plate and serve with sliced, fresh strawberries.
