Ingredients
  

VANILLA WAFER CRUST

  • 2 1/4 CUP CRUSHED VANILL WAFERS
  • 8 TBSP BUTTER MELTED
  • 1/2 TSP SALT

LEMON FILLING

  • 8 OZ CREAM CHEESE
  • 1/4 CUP GRANULATED SUGAR
  • 1 3/4 CUP HEAVY CREAM
  • 1/2 CUP POWDERED SUGAR
  • 1 TSP GELATIN
  • 2 LEMONS JUICED
  • 2 TSP LEMON ZEST
  • 8 OZ FRESH STRAWBERRIES THINLY SLICED

Instructions
 

VANILLA WAFER CRUST

  • Place vanilla wafers in a food processor or blender and grind to a fine crumb.
  • Microwave butter for 20-30 seconds until the butter is melted.
  • In a separate bowl, combine melted butter into the wafer crumbs and stir until there are no dry crumbs left.
  • Line the bottom of your tart pan with a parchment circle the same size of the bottomof the pan, pour the crumbs into the 9-inch tart pan and press firmly against the bottom and sides to form the crust.

LEMON FILLING

  • In a medium mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy, 2-4 minutes.
  • Slowly add the sugar in to the cream cheese while beating the mixture and scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Add 1/4 of a cup of heavy cream and beat until the cream cheese is liquid consistency.
  • Then add all the remaining heavy cream and mix on high until it thickens.
  • Sprinkle the gelatin over the lemon juice in a small bowl and set it aside for at least 5 minutes to dissolve.
  • Microwave the mixture for 10-15 seconds. It should be completely liquid.
  • Slowly pour the warm gelatin in a steady stream into the cream as it mixes.
  • Continue to process the cream until it is the consistency of thick yogurt, about 1 minute.
  • Add lemon zest and mix until combined.
  • Pour mixture into the prepared crust and wrap in plastic wrap.
  • Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving or 30 minutes in the freezer if in a rush.
  • Arrange sliced strawberries in rings around the top of the crust after chilling.
