Strawberry cheesecake is a classic for a reason. The slight tartness of the strawberries cuts through the richness of the cheesecake, but all the decadence is still there to enjoy. As an added bonus, you'll love this cheesecake even more once you realize you don't have to sweat over a stove to make it. Use the recipe that follows and you'll see that cheesecake can come right out of a slow cooker.
You'll be disappointed, however, if you just press a crust into the slow cooker and pour the filling over the top. The cheesecake won't cook properly, and you'll likely end up with a hard filling rather than the sweet and light cake that is cheesecake's hallmark. Instead, turn the slow cooker into a water bath; raise the cheesecake so it gets the gentle heat it needs. The cheesecake will bake perfectly and turn into a sweet treat you can be proud to serve to guests.
