Fresh Strawberry Cheesecake Pie, a delicious crumb crust and a creamy cream cheese and fresh strawberry filling. The perfect dessert.
This last week we have been having a few dinner dates, my eldest daughter is back home for a short holiday and we are enjoying every minute of it.
Enjoying every minute of it when you live in Italy naturally means food is a big part. I have been making more desserts then ever.
The other evening we had friends over for dinner and I served, at my daughter’s request, White Sauce Lasagna, My Mom’s Meatloaf a couple of desserts that I have not posted yet but were a big hit and this Fresh Strawberry Cheesecake Pie.
I love Cheesecake baked and No Bake. This Cheesecake is Baked. I made a simple crumb and butter base and the cream cheese filling I added pureed strawberries. It worked perfectly.
Fresh Strawberry Cheesecake Pie
Like most desserts that need to be refrigerated, leaving them in the fridge over night always works best.
Then just before serving drizzle with melted chocolate and top with a chocolate dipped strawberry or two.
I like to think of this Fresh Strawberry Cheesecake Pie like a lighter almost Mousse type Dessert. Enjoy!
- 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (180 grams)
- 1/4 cup butter melted (55 grams)
- 8 ounces cream cheese (remove from fridge 30 minutes before using) (225 grams)
- 5 tablespoons sugar (62.5 grams)
- 1 egg
- 6 medium - large strawberries pureed
- 1 1/2 cups whipped cream
- melted dark chocolate for drizzling
- whole strawberries
Pre-heat oven to 340° F (170° C).
In a 7-8 inch (18-20 centimeters) spring form cake pan, add melted butter and crumbs, mix until combined then press down to flatten with a flat bottomed glass. Refrigerate.
In a medium bowl beat together cream cheese, sugar and egg until well combined, add pureed strawberries and beat.
Pour on top of cookie base and bake for approximately 30 minutes (filling should be firm around the outside and the inside wiggly when you shake it). Let cool and then refrigerate for at least 5 hours or overnight before serving.
Before serving top with whipped cream, drizzle with cooled melted chocolate and fresh strawberries. Enjoy!
