Let's Make It
Combine first 3 ingredients; press onto bottom of 9-inch springform pan. Line side of pan with 4-inch-wide strip of parchment.
Reserve 8 strawberries for garnish; cut remaining berries into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Stand largest strawberry slices around edge of prepared pan; finely chop remaining strawberry slices.
Sprinkle gelatine over cold water in small saucepan; let stand 1 min. Cook on low heat 3 min. or until gelatine is completely dissolved, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; set aside.
Beat cream cheese, sugar, orange juice and lemon juice in medium bowl with mixer until blended. Add chopped berries; mix well. Gradually whisk in gelatine. Refrigerate 5 min. or until slightly thickened. Whisk in 1 cup COOL WHIP; pour into prepared pan.
Refrigerate 3 hours or until firm. Remove rim of pan; discard parchment. Cut reserved strawberries in half. Use to garnish cheesecake along with the remaining COOL WHIP.
Since this special-occasion cheesecake serves 16, it's the perfect dessert to serve at your next party or family gathering.
Substitute waxed paper for the parchment paper used to line the springform pan.
