White Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake

Strawberries feature in many classic summer desserts and fresh strawberries have a wonderful flavor. They are used in the following fresh strawberry cheesecake recipe. If you cannot get fresh strawberries you can use unsweetened frozen ones, but fresh ones are nicer in this no-bake strawberry cheesecake, both in the sauce and to garnish it.

If you are using fresh strawberries for the sauce, choose bright red ones, which are plump, firm, and fragrant. There should be no bruising or soft bits and the green cap should still be attached. Juice in the container means the strawberries are overripe. Strawberries are delicate and do not store well so choose perfectly ripe ones. If you are not going to use them all right away in this homemade strawberry cheesecake recipe, store them on a paper towel-lined tray, in a single layer, in the refrigerator for up to two days. Do not wash them or take the green caps off.

The sauce will keep for up to a week if you keep it covered, in the refrigerator, and it is nice on ice cream or other gelatin recipes. You can freeze it if you like. If you like strawberry cheesecakes desserts recipes you will love the strawberry, white chocolate, cream, vanilla and other delicious ingredients in the following no bake strawberry cheesecake recipe.
