Strawberries are the perfect addition to many desserts and baked goods – especially cheesecake. Make this strawberry topping next time you whip up your favorite cheesecake recipe – maybe a batch of Easy Mini Cheesecakes.

This strawberry topping is exceptionally easy to make, and is ready in just a few minutes. You’ll need some fresh strawberries, sugar, lemon juice, and cornstarch. That’s it!

The strawberries naturally color this topping a vibrant red, so no food coloring is needed.

Cooking your strawberries

First, hull and dice your strawberries. Here’s a great article on ways to hull strawberries.

Strawberries cooking down in a sauce pan.Your strawberries will slowly release their juices as they cook. The cornstarch works with the juices in the pan to create a thick, gel-like sauce.

Since strawberries vary across the world, you may find it necessary to add a small amount of water to the pan. I’d suggest starting with 1-2 tablespoons, adding more as needed.

This recipe is less about following an exact time and more about the look of your sauce. Keep an eye on it, as your strawberries can cook down quickly.

Ways to use strawberry topping

Use this strawberry topping for cheesecake, pound cake, pancakes, waffles, or to top just about any sweet baked good!
