This marvelous and magnificent beauty has a crust foundation of vanilla cookies and is topped with a delicious strawberry crunch and homemade strawberry glaze topping.

This cheesecake will take you on a tour of your favorite childhood ice cream bar.

Crust

You can use a variety of cookies to form the crust base but vanilla cookies make the crust more delicious and are one of my favorites to go for. You can bake the crust for 10 minutes to make it crunchy (120-degree Celsius) but here we have only chilled the crust in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.

The Filling

Experience the mix of 3 mouth-watering creams that makes the taste more unforgettable. The creams used are Creamcheese, Sourcream, and heavy cream and give you a resemblance to American cheese the moment it starts melting in your mouth.

The Topping

To make the shining topping, explore the wonders of Strawberry glaze (though the process of strawberry glaze is similar to the strawberry sauce adding cornflour in the process makes the glaze more consistent and shiny)

Strawberry Crunch

Again you can use any cookies to make the crunch of your choice but Strawberry cream cookies make it wonderful. To make the flavor strong we have used strawberry jello which results in an extra rich strawberry taste. To make it even crunchier butter is used and baked for 5 minutes. Baking also helps in extra shelf life to store it for a longer time.

Can we make a similar cheesecake in no-bake?

Absolutely Yes, try our Cherry cheesecake made with cream cheese and simple heavy whipped cream topped with homemade cherries in syrup.
