Seasonal Strawberries

By Bea Larkins

This quick and easy Topping can be used so many ways to enhance any dessert or breakfast crepe, etc.


Create the perfect finishing touch for our Crème Brûlée Cheesecake with this simple recipe for a strawberry preserve-style topping.

Serves 12

Preparation Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 quart fresh strawberries - washed - capped
  • and sliced in half
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice - divided
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch

Preparation Instructions

Place halved berries, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and sugar in a medium sauce pot. Stirring very carefully with a spatula or wooden spoon so berries aren’t mashed too much, heat berries over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved and the berries are slightly soft. Heating the berries with sugar will draw out extra juice. Mix cornstarch and remaining lemon juice together in a small bowl. Stir this mixture into the berries and continue to heat, stirring carefully for about 2 minutes until the juices have all thickened and have become shiny and gel-like. Pour into a plastic container and let cool. When ready to serve, spoon a generous serving of Strawberry Preserves. Topping over each slice of Crème Brûlée Cheesecake.

Serving Tip To cut cheesecake easily, chill well. Run a sharp knife under hot water, wipe dry, and cut a slice. Repeat for more slices.
