This beautiful strawberry cheesecake shortcake combines three of my favorite things – cake, strawberries and cheesecake – into a beautiful dessert that is perfect for celebrating!
If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you know I love strawberries. It’s been my favorite fruit since I was a child. My dad still buys them from me when they’re in season and I come to visit.
So when I was asked to help Driscoll’s Strawberries celebrate Strawberry Shortbread Day, I couldn’t wait. Strawberry Shortbread has been a classic dessert for over 100 years and Dricoll’s is easily my favorite brand of strawberries in my shortbread. They always have the best smelling and prettiest berries! I don’t know about you, but I smell my strawberries to choose the best. 🙂
When I was trying to figure out what to do with the traditional dessert, this cheesecake was one of the few ideas that quickly came to mind. It’s a great showcase for strawberries and with a full layer of shortbread on the bottom, you get a cheesecake with a full layer of strawberry shortbread!
How to make a strawberry cheesecake
I started making this recipe by preparing the shortbread. Believe it or not, I had never made shortbread from nothing before!
Shortbread is a little different from a typical cake. It’s a bit like a sweet cookie, but with a slightly more cakey texture. But it is more crumbly than a cake.
So for the recipe for the shortbread, I went straight to the experts – Driscoll’s. I borrowed the shortcake from their favourite strawberry shortcake recipe. It’s so easy to make. Even easier to make than a cake.
The shortcake is covered with a thin layer of cheesecake, just to keep things together, and then whole strawberries. Aren’t they beautiful, nestled in there?
Then they are completely covered with a light vanilla cheesecake without baking and a little whipped cream. The cake is then covered with a few extra strawberries and a little strawberry sauce.
Absolute perfection! The combination of flavors and textures is perfect.
The dense, crumbly cake, with its fresh, sweet berries and creamy, creamy cheesecake, is just as perfect as you can imagine. And it incorporates all the flavours of a good strawberry shortbread into a super fun and delicious cheesecake. You really won’t want to share.
So it’s time to get your ingredients and Driscoll’s strawberries together. Let’s celebrate National Strawberry Shortcake Day! Yummy!
