Strawberry Topping for Cheesecake
An ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL Strawberry Topping Recipe for cheesecake that is quick and easy to make. Much better than any store-bought or restaurant sauce! You'll love how this sauce drips down with every bite...
Servings: 12 people
- 1 pound strawberries fresh or frozen
- ¾ cup sugar adjust to desired sweetness
- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 ½ teaspoons cornstarch dissolved in 2 Tablespoons of water
Put about ⅓ of the strawberries into a small bowl and set aside. Refrigerate until ready to use. Mix the cornstarch and cold water together.
Transfer the remaining ⅔ of the strawberries, lemon juice, dissolved cornstarch and sugar to a small saucepan. Mix with a wooden spoon and simmer over medium-high heat for about 5-10 minutes or until the strawberries break down and the sauce begins to thicken.
For a smooth sauce, puree the hot sauce in a food processor or an immersion blender until smooth. Strain the berry mixture using a fine-mesh strainer over a bowl. Use the back of a soup ladle or spoon to push the thick berry mixture through the mesh strainer into the bowl. Discard any seeds that remain in the strainer. Allow the fresh strawberry sauce to cool to room temperature. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
For a chunkier version, add in whole or sliced strawberries to the sauce.
