Cheesecake recipe with strawberries
You need for the cheesecake with strawberries: For the puff pastry: 200 grams of flour, 120 grams of cold (!) Butter in small pieces, 60 grams of sugar, 20 grams of powdered sugar, 1 egg. For the curd mass: 500 grams of quark (lean), 300 grams of yogurt, 150 grams of butter, 3 eggs, 1 packet of vanilla cream powder.
