4.5 stars, due to personal preference for a less jelled topping, however, I believe that coating every strawberry and the entire cheesecake top helped to preserve the strawberries longer than would have been possible otherwise with more exposure to air. DH loved this just the way it was. My strawberries ranged from medium to large, and I would have had better coverage with smaller strawberries (I would avoid jumbo warehouse-club strawberries). The jelled topping is less messy than an oozing topping, making it a good choice for potlucks, and it stored well in the refrigerator. I used this on top of 2Bleu's Absolutely the Best New York Cheesecake (Gluten-Free) #244193 as recommended by the chef. Thank you for sharing this recipe, 2Bleu! Made for Please Review My Recipe.

I used Inge 1505's recipe for German Fruit Cake Bottom topping with pudding, strawberries and your glaze making an absolutely beautiful and festive presentation. For its simplicity this is pure genious.

Question: I bought those .6 oz gelatin boxes by Jell-O so do I need to use 5 boxes for this recipe to make it 3 oz. because that seems to be a lot of gelatin. Thanks for the recipes for both the cheesecake and this because they are phenomenal.

Well, although I made 2Bleu's Absolutely the Best New York Cheesecake (Gluten-Free) earlier this year & reviewed it then, I just had to make it again so I could use the topping from THIS recipe on it! I'm tellin' you ~ If you're a cheesecake fan, you really should try out these TWO recipes ~ They're an OUTSTANDING combination! I didn't take the time to get all fancy & make it look professional, but I did pile on top all the strawberries I could! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe cooking game]

This came out very nice indeed. I couldn't find strawberry gelatin, so when the cornstarch and sugar and water were being stirred to boil, I grated a cup of fresh strawberries in the mix, enabling to give of a lovely fresh strawberry jelly. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
