Yummy and easy, strawberry cheesecake! The creamy texture of the cheesecake and the delicious streusel topping makes this a great recipe! It's very easy to prepare, it's just hard to wait on it to cool to take a bite! ** Recipe was from paper from Martha White. I couldn't find plain strawberry muffin mix, so I used strawberry cheesecake muffin mix and it was yummy!

This is so Delish!!! I make it using differnet pie fillings and different muffins mixes too. Apple Pie filling with Apple Cinnamon muffin. Mix berry muffin mix with cherry pie filling, on and on. Wonderful. Everyone who tried loves it too. I also use just a 9 by 11 aluminum pan or other and it comes out just fine. Easy and Delish!
