Strawberry Cheesecake

     Tess baked this Strawberry Cheesecake last night for her boyfriend's birthday. The recipe called for dollops of strawberry puree to be swirled (marbled) through the cheesecake batter with a knife before baking. When she made the first cut through the circles of puree it created pretty heart shapes, so she left it that way. It held this exact pattern as it baked and looked just as pretty when it was done. I showed her how to use a water bath to bake the cheesecake so it wouldn't crack and it turned out perfectly. She said everyone loved it, so I guess it tasted as good as it looked. Here is a link to the recipe she used. We'll have to make it again so I can taste it!
* I have no idea why the recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of water. She did not use it.

  1. That is the most beautiful cheesecake I've ever seen! I wonder if those heart shapes will turn out like that every time, or is it just serendipity?
