Cheesecakes
No- bake cheese cake or  Baked cheese cake. Strawberries have always been my favorite. For my baked cheese cake I love to top it with strawberry and for my nobake I use them as puree and as a topping. 

If your strawberries are sour, you can dip them in sugar water and then top them.this helps sweeten them and also give a glaze onto the cake which makes your cake look fantastic.
