Crust, this is simply a homemade brownie also my first mistake....I forgot to buy brownie mix.
Cheesecake mixture, mistake #2. I used the recipe from my Junior's Cheesecakes cookbook but added an extra egg because I use my own eggs, layed by my chickens and they are medium instead of the extra large called for. Also I forgot to add the whipping cream. So....... here is "my" recipe. I must say it was soooo yummy!
Four packages 8 oz. cream cheese
1 2/3 cups sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 tablespoon vanilla
I put everything in a food processor and just let it run until smooth. Pour on top of brownie mix which is undercooked, don't make the mistake of overcooking it.
Strawberry puree, I only used a cup but I think more would be better.
2 cups frozen strawberries
1/4 cup sugar
Defrost strawberries in microwave and place in blender with sugar. Blend until pureed. I then poured it into a ziploc bag, snipped a corner and swirled it around the cheesecake. Use a knife and cut it through the cheesecake mixing the strawberry through out. Bake on 350 degrees aproximately 1 hour 15 minutes or until the top is set and light brown. Remove from oven and let cool. Place in refrigerator for as long as possible, at least 4 or 5 hours.
1 cup whipping cream
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Heat whipping cream. Place chocolate chips in a mixing bowl. Add hot cream to chocolate chips and whisk until smooth. Ladel over cheesecake allowing chocolate to run down the sides, spreading with knife when necessary. Place a few tablespoons in a ziploc bag. Arrange strawberries on top of the cheesecake then drizzle remaining chocolate on top. Chill until chocolate is set.
