Let's Make It
For the cheesecake:
Beat PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese and sweetened condensed milk in a medium bowl until smooth, then beat in gelatin mix, lemon zest, and lemon extract. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours to set up (I left mine overnight).
For the strawberry topping:
Combine all ingredients in a medium pot over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 12-15 minutes. Let cool and store in fridge until ready to use. *Mixture will thicken upon cooling.
For the graham cracker crust:
Whisk graham cracker crumbs and sugar together, then drizzle in melted butter and combine until mixture is uniform.
To assemble cheesecake shooters:
Add 1 Tbsp or so of graham cracker crust to the bottom of a small glass or shot glass. Top with 2 Tbsp cheesecake mixture, then 1 Tbsp of strawberry topping. Serve immediately. Images do not match method of preparation. Looks like two layers.
Note: For a more traditional looking cheesecake, press the entirety of the graham cracker mixture into the bottom of a 9 inch pie plate. Fill with cheesecake mixture, then top with strawberry topping. Place in fridge to set up for four hours before serving.
