I found the basic cheese cake recipe in the Southern Living Little Book of Cheese Cakes. I modified the recipe to my liking add strawberries inside and on top under a layer of chocolate sauce.
I tried this recipe and say it is family tested and true my husband ate a slice and said it was very good to him.
