As summer meanders its way into our lives, I am having a glorious time thinking of all the wonderfully refreshing and easy desserts I can make.  Sometimes baking in the summer is just not something I look forward too, so still being able to enjoy a fabulous dessert without turning on my oven is such a treat!

This sweet little cheesecake could not be easier!  With only four ingredients and then a delectable vanilla crust, you really can’t go wrong.

For my crust, I used vanilla cookies (like Vanilla Oreo’s or Nilla Wafers) that were finely ground.  In total, there was about 3/4 cup of the crumbs, to which I added 2 tablespoons of melted butter.

Then press into the bottom of a prepared 7-inch springform pan!  Easy peasy.

The McCormick Strawberry Extract is actually tinted a sweet dusty rose color, so not only will your pie taste like sweet strawberry, but it will look like it too!

Now, if only to figure out how to bake a two-layer chocolate cake without an oven.

    Have you tried it a real strawberry reduction? I’m wondering if I can reduce and puree real strawberries rather than use imitation?
