Strawberry Cream Cheesecake

Strawberry Cream Cheesecake ~ creamy, refreshing and delicious! #StrawberryCheesecake #Desserts #ValentinesDesserts
I am still on a strawberry high, as you can see, but this time it is  the creamiest cream dessert I have had in a long time.

This Strawberry Cream Cheesecake is just that - delicious crust, with a creamy cheesecake layer, followed by a strawberry pudding and topped with whipped cream and fresh strawberries.



I would definitely recommend this as a Valentines Day dessert, or for that matter any special occasion. The dessert has no strange or expensive ingredients and you can make it a day in advance only leave the fresh strawberries until you are ready to serve}
