This beautiful Strawberry Shortcake Cheesecake combines three of my favorite things – cake, strawberries and cheesecake – into a beautiful dessert that is perfect for celebrating!
If you’ve been reading the blog a while, then you know I love strawberries. They’ve been my favorite fruit since I was a kid. My dad will still buy them for me when they’re in season and I’m coming to visit.
So when I was asked to help Driscoll’s Strawberries celebrate Strawberry Shortcake Day, I could not wait. Strawberry shortcake has been a classic dessert for more than 100 years and Dricoll’s is easily the strawberry brand I prefer in my shortcake. They always have the best smelling, prettiest berries! I don’t know about you, but I smell my strawberries to pick out the best ones.
When trying to figure out what spin to put on the traditional dessert, this cheesecake was one of a few ideas that quickly came to mind. It’s such a great showcase for the strawberries and with a full layer of shortcake on the bottom, you get the full strawberry shortcake experience layered right into a cheesecake!
