4th of July is this weekend. It’s hard to believe that we are in July already. This patriotic cheesecake is great for serving at parties. Each layer has its own color. To give it that fresh taste I went ahead and added some summer favorite strawberries and blueberries. I hope everyone has a great and safe holiday weekend with family and friends.
2-3 drops red food coloring
3 large eggs, room temperature
1 (14oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 tablespoons sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl with an electric mixer beat the cream cheese on medium to high speed until smooth and fluffy. Next slowly add the eggs one at a time. Add sweetened condensed. Now separate mixture in 3 different bowls. Add food coloring to each, except for one. Stir food coloring until well incorporated. Pour mixture into crust one at a time.
Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes, until nearly set, but jiggles a bit in the center. Cool for 1 hour. Chill for 6 hours or overnight. Top with fruit.
