Strawberry Cheesecake Jars

When I had the opportunity recently to try my hand at recipe writing for Belmont Forum I turned my attention to desserts for my third recipe (after whipping up some Mini Beef Burgers with Hand Cut Chips and also Lemon and Herb Chicken Schnitzel with Slaw and Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges).Β It really was a whole lot of fun and they have a lovely range of produce available in their fresh food precinct.

I decided to embrace the recent trend of jars. Jars, jars, jars, you see them everywhere! For drinks, for desserts, basically for anything you can jam into a jar,Β so yes even jam. I think they look a little bit lovely and hence this recipe. Also a chance to work with the beautiful strawberries that are available at the moment. This isn’t an overly sweet cheesecake recipe so just up the icing sugar if you’d prefer it a little sweeter. I ended up trying glasses and jars, just to see how they would look…. was a particularly creative afternoon πŸ™‚

Enjoy!
