Three Berry Cheesecake with
20 large fresh strawberries
1 pint heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Kirkland Signature* Three Berry
Cheesecake (or any other
Kirkland Signature cheesecake)
Large sprig of mint, for garnish
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon shortening
WHITE DIPPING CHOCOLATE
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
3/4 teaspoon shortening
Gently rinse strawberries and set out to dry completely, blotting with paper towels.
Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.
To prepare dipping chocolate, place semisweet chocolate and shortening in a bowl
and heat in the microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring, until it is smooth ( 110°F).
Repeat the process with white chocolate and shortening.
Dip each strawberry in semisweet chocolate and set on the waxed paper.
Fill a small sandwich bag or pastry bag with the melted white chocolate. Cut a very
small hole in the bag and pipe white-chocolate decorations onto the strawberries.
Whip cream on high speed until soft peaks form. Add confectioners’ sugar and vanilla.
Continue beating for another 30 seconds.
Using a large spatula, carefully lift the cheesecake off the plate and onto a cake stand.
Lay the chocolate-dipped strawberries in a ring around the cake, with the stems facing out. Place a large dollop of whipped cream in the center and garnish with fresh
mint. Serve remaining whipped cream on the side. Makes 16 servings.
