I made this no-bake cheesecake for my sister and my friend’s daughter recently. Unlike my other No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake recipe which is made with fresh strawberries puree, I first turned my fresh strawberries into a coulis before blending it with cream cheese. I even used the same coulis to make a glaze. The result? A super fragrant cheesecake.
No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake with Strawberry Glaze
For 8“ pastry ring
For the Crust
135 g marie biscuits
47 g unsalted butter, melted
For the Strawberry Coulis
454 g fresh strawberries
3 Tbsp granulated sugar (I used organic cane sugar)
1 Tbsp lemon juice
For the Strawberry Cheesecake Filling
260 g cream cheese, softened
100 g granulated sugar (I used organic cane sugar)
240 g strawberry coulis
240 g whipped cream
2 Tbsp (18 g) gelatin powder
80 g water
For the Strawberry Glaze
120 g strawberry coulis
2 Tbsp light corn syrup
1/2 Tbsp (4.5 g) gelatin powder
20 g water
魚膠粉 1/2湯匙 (4.5克)
For the Strawberry Coulis 士多啤梨醬
Wash and pat dry strawberries then hull and cut in halves. Place strawberries, lemon juice and sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil then simmer on low, stirring occasionally, until the strawberries are softened and mixture is syrupy, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Strain mixture into a bowl to remove the seeds. Set aside to cool.
For the Crust 餅底
Wrap bottom of the pastry ring with plastic wrap.
Use a food processor to process biscuits until finely ground. Add melted butter and mix until evenly moistened. Press mixture into the bottom of the ring with the back of a spoon (I love to use the bottom of a tall glass or ramekin to press down the crust firmly). Chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes or until firm.
For the Cheesecake Filling 芝士餡
Chill mixing bowl and the whisk attachment of the hand mixer in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes before start.
Bloom gelatin by mixing it with water then set aside for 5 minutes. Warm mixture in the microwave or sit the bowl in hot water until gelatin liquefies. Set aside.
With a food processor or blender, process cream cheese, strawberry coulis and sugar until smooth then pour into a mixing bowl. Stir in the gelatin mixture until incorporated.
In the chilled mixing bowl, beat whipping cream until thickened and soft peaks form. Fold whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture in two batches until homogeneous.
Remove pastry ring from fridge and pour batter over the chilled crust. Tap pan on the countertop several times to remove any large air bubbles then smooth top. Refrigerate until firm.
For the Strawberry Glaze 士多啤梨鏡面
Bloom gelatin by mixing it with water and set aside for 5 minutes. Warm mixture in the microwave or sit the bowl in hot water until gelatin liquefies. Add corn syrup and strawberry coulis then mix thoroughly.
Pour glaze over chilled cake then chill until glaze is set. Unmold and add other decorations on top.
My friend placed her own baby shark toys on top for decorations.
