The tastes of summer for me have to be strawberries and cream. As the weather has been so beautiful this October this I felt inspired to pretend it was still summer and create this gorgeous (if I do say so myself) cheesecake.
It’s a super rich cheesecake which doesn’t just have strawberries and cream liqueur but also contains strawberries and cream truffles. The mix of all these flavours makes this a delicious and creamy dessert which tastes good all year round.
No Bake Strawberry and Cream Cheesecake
No bake cheesecakes are a definitely a favourite of mine. If you want to be inspired check out all my cheesecake recipes here. Strawberries and cream is a beautiful combination and a classic one. The rich creamy layer topped with fresh strawberries so divine. Adding Baileys into the mix makes those flavours even better.
I have created this cheesecake so many times and each time I decorate it slightly differently. Usually I cover it with fresh strawberries. I take this as my classic look.
Baileys Strawberries and Cream
Baileys Strawberries and Cream is a sweet summer version of the classic Baileys liqueur. It’s fruity but also has a lovely creaminess which is so moreish. It’s a lovely great way try a new liqueur and try it in a new way. I’m still experimenting with the cocktails but first I created this strawberries and cream cheesecake recipe.
How to make a Strawberries and Cream Cheesecake
Break up the biscuits in a food processor or put the biscuits into a sandwich bag and hit it with a rolling pin. Then mix together the broken up shortbread and butter, making sure all the crumbs have been coated. Press the mix into the cake tin to form the base. Press down with a spoon to push it in to the corners and stick it all together. Pop it in the fridge to set while you make the cream mix.
Mix together the cream cheese and caster sugar, until the sugar is dissolving. You don’t want gritty cream. Stir in the Baileys strawberries and cream liqueur. In a new bowl whip up the double cream until it becomes thick.
Mix the thickened double cream into the cream cheese mixture gently. Add in the chopped truffles if you love them. Remove one third of the mix and add the food colouring paste to make it pink.
Troubleshooting – Don’t use liquid colouring as it will make the mix too watery and it might not set properly.
Dollop the main mix into the cake tin, studding with the pink mix and gently swirl with the back of a spoon to get a beautiful two toned cheesecake. You don’t have to do this but I think it makes the finished cheesecake look beautiful and extra special.
