Strawberries and Cream Cheesecake Hearts. This recipe is a simple, No Bake, creamy piece of deliciousness!

It's packed with strawberry flavor, and I have not added any sugar as I have relied on the natural sugars in the strawberries themselves.

Here, I have chosen to use some lovely heart shaped tins, perfect for Valentine's Day. However, if you have some nice shaped cookie cutters, you could also use those, and just make some parchment paper underneath so you can transfer them easily to the fridge to set.

I do love making no-bake cheesecakes! They are so versatile and incredibly easy to put together. You just need to remember the 4 main ingredients; the cookies for the base and for the filling, fresh cream, cream cheese, and sugar. You can play around and experiment with different flavor combinations, or make a very simple vanilla cheesecake and add a topping. You could even keep it really simple by adding a pie filling on the top as your topping if you were in a rush and didn't have time to make your own topping.

Keeping a small supply of fruits in your freezer or canned in your store cupboard comes in handy for when you wish for a cheesecake! Particularly in the Winter months when berries aren't as sweet as in the Summer. If you have some frozen, they will be sweet. My tip, before you add sugar to any of your recipes where you use fruit, I suggest you have a taste to see the sweetness of the fruit because it can vary so much from season to season, and also from which country the fruit has been grown in!

Strawberries

For this recipe of Strawberry cheesecake hearts, I've used a couple of heart-shaped molds with loose bottoms for easy release. In the photos, I've also shown the use of a regular round springform pan for those of you who would like to make one single cheesecake. Another tip for you, if you can't find any heart-shaped molds but you happen to have some large heart-shaped cookie cutters, you could use those and just place them on a small piece of card and parchment underneath so you can form the base and let it set.

So let's get straight to the recipe and see how we make these delicious Strawberry Cheesecake Hearts. Please enjoy!

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 4 Hours refrigeration
Yield: 6 servings
You will need: 8-9 inch cake round tin. Springform or one where the base comes out. (You need to be able to get the pie out without damaging it.) or various shaped cookie cutters.

Ingredients:
The Base
2 1/2 oz or 75 g butter
8 oz or 220 g Digestive Biscuits (cookies, see below) or Honey Graham Crackers

The Filling
7 fl oz or 200 ml fresh whipping cream
7 oz or 200 g cream cheese (room temperature)
3 1/2 oz or 100 g of strawberries fresh or frozen
1 Tablespoons Icing sugar / powdered sugar (optional)
***Hold back a handful of the strawberries for the top decoration if you wish

*For US friends, you can buy Digestive cookies from Meijer's, Job Lots, Walmart, Dollar Tree, World Market, in the cookie or International section. Please do try to use digestive biscuits in your recipe as it will make a difference in the base.

Instructions:
1. Cut out some parchment paper and line the base of the tin.

** If you are using a springform tin, I clip the parchment paper in & lock the tin. Then cut the excess paper off.Cheesecake Base

2. Place all your digestives / Graham Crackers in a zippy bag, and using a rolling pin bash them until they become fine crumbs.Cheesecake Base

If you are using frozen strawberries, dry them off after defrosting with kitchen paper. Mash the strawberries or put them in a blender to smooth.Mash strawberries for cheesecake filling

3. In a mixing bowl (large enough to hold the digestives) melt the butter for 30 seconds in the microwave. It should be liquid. If not, heat for a further 10 seconds, or until it has completely melted. Add the crumbed digestives to the butter and mix very well until it is all incorporated.Cheesecake Base

4. Lightly (vegetable) oil the base of your tin if using a large tin. Transfer the digestives mixture to the baking pan.

5. Use the back of your hand and go along the edges pushing the mix down and compressing.Cheesecake Base

Use the bottom of a glass or other object and compress the digestives mixture as much as possible. The harder it is the less likely it will come apart when you take it out of the pan. Cheesecake Base

7. Brush the side of the tin all around with some vegetable oil or spray to prevent the pie from sticking then add the filling.

8. Use a spatula and carefully smooth the surface of the mixture.  Place in the fridge for 4 hours MINIMUM. When ready to serve you can decorate the top or leave it plain. the choice is yours!

No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake -A lovely dessert and always popular any time of year!

Some Tips:
-If you are worried the pie has not set, place in the freezer for 60 minutes before you are ready to serve it, and then remove from the tin and cut whilst it is still cold.

-It is easier to cut 'clean' slices if you use a very sharp knife under hot water first, and cut straight through the pie.

-If you want to achieve a smooth finish on the top of the pie, use a long-bladed flat rounded knife, dip in a glass of hot water and smooth the surface and sides.
