Recipe Notes

  • If your cheesecake filling is a little runny, place it in the refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes. It should firm up and be easier to pipe. The filling can also be made a day ahead of time.
  • If you want the filling to sit better in the strawberries, use a 1/2 teaspoon or melon baller and scoop out a little bit of the strawberry's center.
