Cheesecake Bars with Strawberry Syrup Remember a few days ago ( and by a few I mean yesterday..) I shared with you my fresh homemade strawberry syrup (aka sauce) and said I would be sharing a few recipes that all for strawberry syrup with you over the next few weeks. It goes great on waffles, pancakes, ice-cream, milkshakes, and cakes.

One of my favorite uses for strawberry syrup is to use it as a topping on cheesecake. It’s a classic for a good reason!

Now don’t let this pretty dish intimidate you, I promise it’s super easy to make and will be so worth it in the end! You can make these bars without or without the strawberry topping but I highly recommend trying the topping.

  1. The recipe says to beat the cream cheese and sugar for 22 minutes. Is that correct? Sounds like an awful lot of time to be beating the ingredients.

    1. Hi Biya, sorry about that it’s 2 minutes! I will update the recipe now.

  2. Wow,that cheesecake looks amazing! l also love how you used fresh strawberries in the syrup. Pinned!
