Ingredients

Digestive Biscuits: These crunchy, slightly sweet biscuits provide the perfect base for the cheesecake pie. Their crumbly texture adds a nice contrast to the creamy filling.

Butter: Melted butter is mixed with the crushed digestive biscuits to create a buttery crumb crust. It helps bind the crumbs together and adds richness to the dessert.

Cream Cheese: Cream cheese is the key ingredient in the cheesecake filling. It provides a creamy and tangy base that pairs perfectly with the sweet strawberries.

Icing Sugar: Also known as powdered sugar, this ingredient is used to sweeten the cheesecake filling. It also helps to thicken the filling and give it a smooth texture.

Vanilla Extract: A splash of vanilla extract enhances the flavor of the cheesecake filling. It adds a warm and comforting undertone to the dessert.

Double Cream: Double cream is whipped and folded into the cheesecake filling to create a light and airy texture. It adds richness and creaminess to the dessert.

Strawberries: Fresh strawberries are used to top the cheesecake pie. Their sweet and juicy flavor complements the creamy filling and adds a pop of color to the dessert.

Strawberry Jam: Strawberry jam is brushed over the top of the cheesecake pie to add a shiny glaze and extra burst of strawberry flavor. It brings a touch of sweetness and tanginess to the dessert.

Serving Suggestions and Pairings

Here are some serving suggestions and pairings for your Strawberry Cheesecake Pie:

  • Whipped Cream: Serve a dollop of homemade whipped cream on top of each slice for added creaminess and sweetness. The light and fluffy texture of the whipped cream complements the dense and rich cheesecake filling.
  • Fresh Strawberries: Garnish each slice with a few fresh strawberry slices for an extra burst of fruity flavor. The contrast between the juicy strawberries and creamy cheesecake is a match made in dessert heaven.
  • Vanilla Ice Cream: Serve each slice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a classic and indulgent dessert combination. The cold and creamy ice cream pairs perfectly with the tangy and creamy cheesecake pie.
  • Hot Fudge Sauce: Drizzle some warm hot fudge sauce over each slice for a decadent and rich dessert experience. The combination of chocolate and strawberries is always a crowd-pleaser.
