Creations with Curd. Strawberry Curd Cheesecake.

When we made the curd, we had so much we didn't know what to do with it all. Here's another idea for adding curd to something delicious.


Strawberry Curd Cheesecake

I like cheesecake, but I've never made one. So, I bought a mix from the store and made it according to the directions on the box.


Ingredients:

Classic Cheesecake mix (Cheesecake Factory) and Ingredients to make it.


Ingredients for Curd (if you don't already have some made):

Fruit - the amount will depend on the type of fruit you are doing.

1 lb. Strawberries

1/4 Cup Unsalted Butter

1/2 Cup Sugar (white)

1 Tablespoon Cornstarch

1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice (can substitute and use lime juice or other fruit juice)

4 Egg Yolks

1 small Package Gelatin (no flavor)



Directions:

1. Puree fruit (using "whole juice" setting on the Blendtec). Over a clean bowl or large measuring cup, pour the puree through a fine mesh sieve. This will remove seeds and extra pulp from the fruit.

2. In a small saucepan set over medium heat, melt butter. Remove pan from heat. Whisk in sugar, cornstarch, gelatin, fruit puree and lemon juice. Whisk in egg yolks one at a time until fully combined. Return mixture to heat. Continue whisking occasionally until thickened. Remove from heat.

3. Transfer to desired storage container. Cover and cool in fridge for a few hours before using. want the curd to set up before adding it to the cheesecake.

4. Make cheesecake as directed on the box. Use the chef's tip for creamier texture. Add 1/2 Cup Strawberry Curd at the end of step 3 (on the box), before adding the eggs.


Once cheesecake is cooled, you can add more curd to the top of the individual pieces. I just used an 8x8 pan instead of a pie tin, so my pieces came out square.
