for a home bound pandemic birthday without a cake pan, and as someone who had never made a cheesecake before, this was ridiculously easy! he loved it. i simply crushed raspberries on top and it was perfect. i did have to cook them for about 8 minutes longer. not sure why.
It was easy and delicious! My husband loved it (and he is fussy and currently likes a complicated low carb cheese cake that is really a pain to make). I did make a slight change as I wanted to use up the cream cheese I had on hand - I used 8 ounces low fat and 8 ounces regular cream cheese. Next time it will be all low fat cream cheese. I love using fresh strawberries and making a great topping with such ease. And FYI - I don't bake.
