1 cup strawberry topping
1 container (16 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
4 to 6 drops red food color, if desired
Fresh berries, if desired
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Press cookie dough evenly into bottom only of ungreased 13-by-9-inch pan. (If dough is sticky, use floured fingers.)
2. In medium bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and 3/4 cup of the strawberry topping with electric mixer on medium-high speed about 1 minute, or until well-blended. Add eggs; beat about 2 minutes or until well-blended and creamy. Spread evenly over crust in pan.
3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until center is set. Cool 1 hour. Center will sink slightly as it cools.
4. In medium bowl, mix whipped topping, food color and remaining 1/4 cup strawberry topping. Spread topping mixture over cooled cream cheese layer. Refrigerate about 2 hours or until set. To serve, cut into 6 rows by 3 rows. Garnish each serving with fresh berries. Cover and refrigerate any remaining dessert. Serves 18.
