This was my first attempt at cheesecake and it turned out great! My family went picking strawberries, so the strawberries were very fresh and juicy. Unfortunately, there was a crack in my cheesecake but it was covered in glass. T I will try to use a hot water bath next time to avoid cracking.
That was awesome! I served him at my father’s 72nd birthday party, and he was asking seconds before I finished giving everyone the first slide! There is a subtle lemon flavor for the filling, and everyone commented positively.
I wasn’t sure how the glaze would turn out, because it really wasn’t strawberry season yet, but it did pretty well, even with the less fully ripe berries. I had to use my immersion blender on the glaze, as the berries were very difficult to mash. I will definitely do it again.
