Strawberry Cheesecake

If you love to cook home made food and also love to entertain then I suspect you'll have all the ingredients to make this delicious cheesecake. I've never made cheesecake before (and to be honest I'm not that great a cook) but it actually came out pretty good and there weren't any leftovers.

The great thing about his recipe is that you don't have to use strawberries, you can use any fruit you want. For example you could have raspberries, blackberries, orange, apple etc. The list is endless and you can easily top it with anything that you or your guests fancy.

      Shortcake base sounds delicious. My Mum has her own special recipe too, apparently I'll learn it when I'm 'old enough' but seeing as I'm in my mid-20s I'm not sure when that'll be.

      very good recipe. My traditional cheesecake calls for a shortbread style lining for the pan. I'm not permitted to publish it because it is handed down generation to generation and my daughter doesn't want me to share.
