Strawberry Cheesecake



Happy New Year everyone !!!

Thank you blogging friends for always dropping by !

Thank you lurkers well , for just lurking ! lol

Cheers !!!

Ushering in the New Year won't be complete without cheesecake , so here's the one I baked to complete our calorific New year's dinner ....

Will update this post later , I'm a bit sick er okay , too lazy to post the recipe -___-


Thank you guys for the lovely comments , I'm not that sick , just a headache and er 'twas the time of the month that day also , okay TMI ! lol

For the recipe , please check my mini cheesecakes . I made some slight modification , instead of 350 grams  cream cheese , I only used 300 grams . For the crumb crust , I used 100 grams Marie biscuits , 15 grams butter and 1 1/2 tablespoon sugar .

I used a 6-inch square baking pan and 5 ( 2 x 1 1/3-inch )  loose-bottom tins for this bake .

Fresh strawberry topping , recipe adapted from Baking Illustrated 

2 pounds strawberries , cleaned , hulled and cut into pieces ( I used 170 grams of frozen strawberries ,  thawed + 150 grams fresh strawberries )
1/2 cup sugar ( 3 tablespoon ) 
pinch of salt
1 cup strawberry jam ( 4 tbsp )
2 tbsp juice from 1 lemon ( 1 tsp ) 

* Toss berries , sugar and salt in a medium bowl ; let stand for 30 minutes until berries released some juice and sugar has dissolved . tossing occasionally to combine .
* Process jam in a food processor until smooth , transfer into a small saucepan ; bring to a simmer , stirring frequently until dark and no longer frothy , about 3 minutes . Stir lemon juice , pour warm jam over the strawberries and stir well to combine . Cover with plastic wrap and put in the fridge to chill at least 2 hours or up to 12 hours .
