Strawberry cheesecake recipe

I chose to make the recipe in a square baking pan, so you can cut these nice square bites out of them after they set. Of course you can also make the recipe in a round springform or baking pan, I give a tip for that in the frequently asked questions below.

For the base, I used the following ingredients:

  • Biscuits, like graham crackers
  • Butter, this will make the cookie crumbs form into a firm base.

For the strawberry filling (and decoration) of the cheesecake, you will need the following:

  • Cream cheese, from Philadelphia, for example.
  • Vanilla extract, indispensable and easy to make yourself.
  • Lemon juice, because the juice gives the cheesecake a nice freshness.
  • Whipping cream, to make your cheescake nice and fluffy as well as to decorate the bites nicely.
  • Gelatin, you will need this to make the cheesecake keep its shape.
  • Granulated sugar, this gives a nice but not too sweet taste to the cake.
  • Strawberries, the most important flavoring of this strawberry cheesecake.
