Dessert Recipe: Strawberry Cheesecake


This is a fabulous cheesecake that is much easier to make than it appears. This recipe is very flexible, even for a cheesecake, and the end result is definitely worth it (and boyfriend approved!).

Crust: Press 2C cinnamon graham cracker crumbs, 1/8C sugar & 1/3C softened butter into a spring-form pan and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Strawberry Sauce: Blend 20oz. strawberries with 1T cornstarch until smooth then boil in a pot for 2 minutes and refrigerate to cool.

Cake: Beat 2pkgs cream cheese until fluffy then beat in 1C sweetened condensed milk, 1/8C lemon juice and 3 eggs.

Preparation: Pour half of the cake batter into the springform pan (over the crust). Using a teaspoon, drop about 3/4 of the strawberry sauce over the batter then simply pour the rest of the cake batter into the pan. So you’ll have a middle layer of strawberry yumminess.

Bake in a hot water bath at 300F degrees for 1 hour then turn off the oven but leave the cake in there for another hour. Refrigerate the cake for a few hours or overnight.

Serve the cake with chopped strawberries on top. Heat the reserved sauce to pour on top of each slice.

You can decorate the cake in a variety of different ways; I just used chopped strawberries to keep it simple.
