How to Make Easy Strawberry Cheesecake Recipes

Learn how to make easy strawberry cheesecake recipes. What makes them easy?

Many people are looking for these quick and easy recipes. There are different reasons for this but here is my reasoning. Sometimes I get a craving for cheese cake and when I do I want it NOW. Easy cheesecakes are perfect to make if you don't have time to make a strawberry cheesecake with cream cheese or the ultimate cheesecake which needs two days. I do not want to wait until I mix one up, bake it for maybe an hour, let it cool down and then refrigerate it until it gets cold. If I have to wait that long when I am dying for a piece of this delicious dessert, I may as well drive to a restaurant to satisfy my craving. If not, in all that time I would be craving something else.

So why would you want to know how to make easy strawberry cheesecake recipes? The first thing would be no baking or minimal baking reducing the time needed and the cool down process. Besides not baking the dessert, many ingredients can be used in making cheesecakes that will make the process easier, quicker and also add to the delicious flavor.

When you learn how to make easy strawberry cheesecake recipes gelatin is frequently used in no bake desserts. An unflavored gelatin helps to set up the dessert. By selecting a fruit flavored gelatin it also can add great taste. Many prepared products help to make the production of strawberry cheesecake recipes much easier. Already prepared crusts are available for cheese pie recipes or crumbs are ready to quickly put together graham cracker crusts. Packaged cookies, lady fingers, sponge cake or angel food cakes offer some quick liners for cheesecake crusts. These crusts could not be used if making a typical cheesecake like the Amaretto Cheesecake which requires the crust to be baked in water.

Instant pudding mixes add great flavor when combining it with cream cheese, ricotta cheese or other favorites. Products like Cool Whip, a whipped topping folds into a cheese mixture quickly adding light airy bulk to the dessert. Can pie filling is a good and easy substitute for the fruit. All it takes, for example, to make simple easy strawberry cheesecake recipes is some beaten softened cream cheese, a little strawberry gelatin for flavor and whipped topping for lightness. Fold all of this together with a few fresh sliced strawberries or top finished cake with pie filling. Turn mixture into an already prepared crust and you have an instant cheesecake. How delicious!
