Expert Tips

  • If using frozen strawberries, allow strawberries to thaw and come to room temperature before making cheesecake.
  • When making any cheesecake, be sure to have the cream cheese, eggs and other ingredients at room temperature.
  • Use full-fat cream cheese for the best flavor and texture. Reduced-fat varieties will result in a softer, more watery cheesecake.
