Celebrate National Cheesecake Day with this recipe for a summer treat from The Cheesecake Factory.
Summer Strawberry Cheesecake Treats
Slices of your favorite cheesecake
Assorted toppings (confetti sprinkles, toasted almonds, toasted coconut, Oreo crumbles, toasted peanuts, brickle, etc.)
Using a paring knife, cut off the top of the strawberries just below the stem. Carefully hollow-out each Strawberry using a paring knife. Cut-off the bottom of each Strawberry to create a flat area that will allow them to stand upright.
Place slice of cheesecake* into a mixing bowl. Using a rubber spatula, evenly incorporate all of the cheesecake ingredients and crust together to create a filling with the consistency of a thick pudding. *Note: If using Mango Key Lime Cheesecake, first cut off the bottom crust and finely chop the crust before adding to mixing bowl.
Use a spatula to transfer cheesecake filling into a pastry bag with a star tip. Fill hollowed-out strawberries with cheesecake filling and top with your favorite topping.
Refrigerate until ready to serve. Enjoy!
