packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
cup strawberry topping (from an 11.75-oz jar)
container (16 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed

Fresh berries, if desired
1Heat oven to 350°F. Press cookie dough evenly into bottom only of ungreased 13x9-inch pan. (If dough is sticky, use floured fingers.)
2In 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.
3Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until center is set. Cool 1 hour. Center will sink slightly as it cools.
