I’ve been on a strawberry kick lately, and there’s more to come too! It’s hard for me to resist buying strawberries when they are on sale. Especially the good sales like 3 containers for $5 or 4 for $5!

After we shared the strawberry pretzel cheesecake salad I’ve had the combination of strawberries and pretzel on my mind. It’s naturally sweet and salty, obviously it’s a GOOD combo!

So I’m taking it back to the basics with this easy recipe. Only a few ingredients are needed!

A few recipe notes:

-The strawberries can be washed and sliced ahead of time. Even a day in advance. Just store them in the fridge until you’re ready to use them.

-If you decide to slice the strawberries and pipe the cheesecake on right away, I would recommend blotting the sliced strawberries with a paper towel really well to remove access liquid. This will help prevent the cheesecake from slipping right off.

-Add the chopped pretzels right before serving, otherwise they can get soggy if topped too soon.

-I used a Wilton 1M piping tip to pipe the cheesecake.

-I got lucky and found jumbo, and I mean JUMBO strawberries when I went to the grocery store. The bigger the strawberries, the more cheesecake you can fit onto each one :)

Ingredients:

  • Strawberries, sliced
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-3.5 cups powdered sugar (depending on preference)
  • crushed pretzels

Directions:

  1. The strawberries can be washed and sliced ahead of time. Even a day in advance. Just store them in the fridge until you’re ready to use them. If you decide to slice the strawberries and pipe the cheesecake on right away, I would recommend blotting the sliced strawberries with a paper towel really well to remove access liquid. This will help prevent the cheesecake from slipping right off.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth, 1-2 minutes. Add in the vanilla extract and powdered sugar, beat until well combined. Start with 2 cups of powdered sugar, and add more depending on your preference.
  3. Place the cheesecake in a piping bag fit with a piping tip (I used a wilton 1M tip). Pipe the cheesecake on the strawberries in a zig-zag pattern.
  4. Right before serving top the strawberries with crushed pretzel pieces.
The cheesecake will make about 2 cups. You could probably pipe 2 container of strawberries with that amount.
