Steps

1. Cover the bottoms of the plastic cake molds with aluminium foil. Put butter in a bowl and melt in the microwave.
2. Put the cookies in a plastic bag and crush. Add the crushed cookies into the bowl with the melted butter and mix.
3. Line the bottoms of the plastic circles with the cookie mix and press down with a spoon or with your fingers. If you add a generous amount to each circle, you should have enough for 8.
4. Put cream in a bowl, whip until it has thickened, and chill in the refrigerator. Soften gelatin in water in another bowl, and dissolve in a bain marie.
5. In another bowl, mix cream cheese, granulated sugar and lemon juice together standing in a bain marie.
6. Take the bowl from Step 5 off the bain marie. Add yogurt, gelatin and the whipped cream from Step 4 in that order, mixing between additions.
7. Pour the mixture into the cookie-crust lined molds. Level the surface with a spoon and chill in the refrigerator.
8. Make the strawberry mousse. Put the cream in a bowl and whip until thickened. Soften the gelatin in water in another bowl, and dissolve in a bain marie.
9. In another bowl, crush the strawberries using a whisk. Add lemon juice, granulated sugar and strawberry liqueur. Microwave for 30 seconds.
10. Add the dissolved gelatin from Step 9 and the whipped cream from Step 8, and mix rapidly.
11. Pour the mixture on top of the chilled molds from Step 7 using a spoon. Level the tops and put back in the refrigerator.
12. When they have set, they are done. I used store bought strawberry sauce for these. Decorate with fruits of your choice.
13. I made these in oval shaped molds.
14. For the jello layer on top, refer to Recipe ID: 1570977 and the red jello for the orange cheese mousse.

Story Behind this Recipe

Strawberry mousse goes so well with no-baked cheesecake. I tried different combinations, but I've concluded that this is the best after all.
