“Who doesn't love a good, rich dessert? This strawberry cheesecake has knocked the socks off of everyone I've made it for. It's relatively simple but it can be time consuming. . . get a premade pie crust if you're looking to shorten the process a little. Other than that, all I can say is enjoy! I think you'll be extremely happy with the results. Ratings and critiques appreciated :)”
