Strawberry Glazed Cheesecake

I can't resist, I'm posting this. It's not especially light or diet-friendly, but it's delicious! I modified the original recipe a bit. The crust was far too sweet so I changed it up until it tasted right.

Strawberry Glazed Cheesecake

Crust ingredients:
1-1/2 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup sugar

Filling ingredients:
1-1/4 lbs. cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 tsp. lemon rind, grated
3/4 tsp. orange rind, grated
1-1/2 Tbsps. all purpose flour, sifted
3 eggs, room temperature
1 whole egg yolk
2 Tbsps. heavy cream
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Topping ingredients:
4-1/4 cups fresh strawberries, washed and hulled
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cold water
1/8 tsp. salt (necessary)
1-1/2 Tbsps. cornstarch
1 tsp. unsalted butter, softened
1/8 tsp. red food coloring


Preheat oven to temperature 350°F.

Mix crust ingredients together and press into pie pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes; set aside.

Reduce oven temperature to 250°F.

Beat cream cheese in a bowl with an electric mixer until soft. Add 3/4 cup sugar, lemon rind, orange rind and 1-1/2 Tbs. flour. Mix thoroughly. Add eggs and yolk one at a time, beating after each addition until just incorporated. Beat cream and vanilla. Pour into crust and bake about 65 minutes until edges are firm and center jiggles slightly when pan is moved. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Purée 1 cup strawberries in a food processor or blender. Press through a strainer. Combine strawberry purée, 3/4 cup sugar, cold water, salt and cornstarch in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in 1 tsp. butter and food coloring. Cool slightly. Arrange whole berries over top of cheesecake. Serve glaze over cheesecake.

The strawberry glazed cheesecake AND the oreo dump cake sound...oh, so many desserts, so little time.

I make the strawberry pie that I posted and forgot to PAM the pan. I guess I can run my pie spatula under hot water, dry it off and lift. That's my plan anyway.

This is a recipe I've made since I was in high school (many moons ago...)

Lime Jello Dessert
1 pkg lime jello (can use sugar-free)
1/4 c. lemon juice + 2 teaspoons
1 13 oz. can evaporated milk (can use "lite")
1 3/4 c. hot water
2/3 c. sugar

Crust: 2 cups crushed vanilla wafers mixed with 1/3 cup melted butter

Mix jello and hot water. Place in refrigerator until set. Whip jello till fluffy. Fold in juice and sugar. Whip canned milk then fold into jello mixture. Pour over crust in 9 x 13 pan.

It's a very light dessert.

Callie,

My father-in-law is diabetic & I make him sugar free desserts quite regularly. Recently, I made the Splenda cheesecake recipe off the box (substituting the graham crackers with ground almonds.) He loved it as did our other weight conscious guests.

Here is the recipe:
Crust:
1 1/4 cups graham crackers crumbs
1/4 cup Splenda
3 T melted butter

Filling:
2 (8 oz) packages regular cream cheese
2 (8 oz) packages fat free cream cheese
1 1/4 cups Splenda
4 eggs
1 1/2 T lime juice
1 pinch salt

Crust:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 9 inch springform pan with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
2. Combine graham cracker crumbs, Splenda & melted butter in a small bowl. Press on bottom & up sides of prepared pan.
3. Bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven & cool on a wire rack.

Filling:
1. Beat regular & fat-free cream cheese together at high speed with a mixer until creamy; gradually add Splenda, mixing well. Add eggs one at a time, beating just until each one is incorporated. Add lime juice & a pinch of salt; beat until smooth. Pour into prepared crust.
2. Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until mixture is almost set & slightly firm to touch. Run a knife around edge of pan to release sides & help prevent cracking. Cool to room temperature on a wire rack; cover & chill at least hours.

Nutritional information per serving: (1 slice or 1/16 recipe): Calories 200, Calories from fat 130, Total fat 14g, Saturated fat 8g, Cholesterol 95mg, Sodium 290mg, Total Carbohydrate 11g, Dietary Fiber 0g, Sugars 3g, Protein 8g.

Just an FYI, I never had enough time to chill as long as they suggested. It was still good! Happy Easter!
