DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse strawberries under cool water and let drain on paper towels, with paper towels over top of them also.
  • In medium saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch, add water and cook over medium heat until thick and clear.
  • Add strawberry gelatin and stir to dissolve. Set aside to cool down.
  • Meanwhile, cut tops off the strawberries and place cut side down onto cheesecake THAT IS STILL IN THE SPRINGFORM PAN. Start in center and spiral out to edges. (Note: If you have a store bought cheesecake, you can carefully wrap parchment paper then plastic wrap around it to create a 'wall' above the cheesecake to hold the gel in til firmed up).
  • When gelatin has cooled to almost room temperature, gently pour it over the strawberries, being sure to cover the entire top of strawberries and cake. Place in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours.
  • Loosen cake with a knife between the cake and the pan. unlock the pan (or carefully peel off the plastic wrap and parchment paper).
