Strawberry Swirled Cheesecake Bars

Cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts but I rarely make it; I lack control when it comes to this creamy goodness.   Oddly enough, the first time I tasted Cheesecake I did not like it.   I was coming from a country where our desserts are not nearly as rich as what’s commonly found in the States, so I could only eat just a tiny spoonful at a time.  Since I’m not one to give up, I tried it again and lo and behold, not only could I eat an entire slice but I loved it!!  My taste buds were officially Americanized.  

Strawberry Swirled Cheesecake Bars

These days I try to stay away from temptation so it was a real treat when I made these Strawberry Swirled Cheesecake Bars.   One of the things I love about cheesecake besides the taste is how easy it is to make.   No special technique is needed and even a beginning baker can produce stunning results.   I was able to whip it up quickly, which is key these days since there’s a 3 year old always needing my attention.    I decided to add strawberry swirls since it was the week of Valentine’s and I wanted to be festive, plus my husband loves it.     I made bars but you can easily make a traditional round cheesecake by using a 9 inch pan and adjusting the baking time to about 40 minutes.
