Topping # 3
For the Crust
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix crumb ingredients and press mixture into the bottom of two 9-inch round pans to form crusts.
Bake for 10 minutes and let cool.
For the Filling
Using an electric mixer or hand blender, mix the ﬁlling ingredients and pour 1/2 of mixture into the pans, on top of the crumbs.
Bake for one hour in a water bath, and allow to cool in oven until room temperature, or about three hours, to prevent the cake from cracking.
For the Topping
When cheesecakes are cool, pick a topping, and top the cheesecake. Refrigerate.
For Topping #3: Cut stems off whole strawberries, and arrange on top of cheesecake, pointed ends upward. Mix a package of unﬂavored jello according to instructions and pour over the whole strawberries on the cake.
