Quick and easy Strawberry Cheesecake Puffs. Delicate Puff Pastry filled with ripe and juicy strawberries, a rich no-bake cheesecake filling, and a flavorful strawberry sauce.
Puff Pastry is so much fun to bake with! I made a fantastic Greek Appetizer ( Tiropitas) with one sheet of puff pastry and then with the other sheet, I baked puff pastry shells for these wonderful Strawberry Cheesecake Puffs.
What a Cheesecake Puff?
This amazing dessert is made of layers of puff pastry with a creamy, fluffy cheesecake filling.
If you are a strawberry shortcake lover, then you will love this simple to make dessert. This really is a show stopper that isn’t a lot of work, but it looks like it! I Love those kinds of desserts!
