What really sets this cheescake apart from the rest is the roasted strawberries and real whipped cream. Sure, you can whip this up no problem with fresh or (thawed) frozen strawberries, but roasting the strawberries first really intensifies the strawberry flavour so it stands up so much better to all that rich creamy flavour from the rest of the filling. Using real whipped cream also adds to the authenticity of the flavour, it is so worth taking the 2 minutes to whip up your own cream instead of using “whipped topping.”

My family loves slicing this cheesecake up and eating it straight from the freezer still frozen. It’s actually really yummy served this way, and a great way to cool off on a hot summer evening, but its just as good when its thawed in the fridge for a creamier texture.
