So this is pretty simple. Make a cheesecake, use a cookie cutter and cut out a shape, make a little berry glaze, spoon over top (make it look fancy of course) and top it with a strawberry, or any other berry you want. It can't get any more simple. Just top it off with a pretty picture!

So here is a basic recipe for cheesecake:


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In medium bowl, combine:
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, melted
Press into the bottom of 9x13 pan.

In large bowl, beat together
3 (8oz) packages of cream cheese
1 1/2 cups white sugar
Blend in one at a time:
4 eggs
Then stir in:
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
Fold in gently:
2 cups sour cream

Pour batter over crust. Bake for 1 hour. Turn off oven and leave cake in for at least 30 min.

Let it cool completely, then use cookie cutter for shapes--the bigger the cookie cutter, the better it will turn out.

Berry Glaze....I just cut up some fresh strawberries and thawed out 1 cup frozen raspberries [this is what I had] and put them in sauce pan with 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup white sugar. Simmer for about 15 minutes. Then use a fine mesh strainer, and strain the juice into clean bowl. Then use this juice over the cheesecake! Its just THAT simple, people! Hope you enjoy!
