Why I Love This Recipe

Did you know that the first recorded recipe for cheesecake dates back to ancient Greece? It was a simple mixture of fresh cheese, honey, and wheat flour, served as a dessert for athletes during the first Olympic games in 776 BC. The modern cheesecake as we know it today, however, didn't emerge until the late 19th century.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup (227g) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 1/4 cups (281g) all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (170g) strawberry preserves
24 ounces (680g) cream cheese, softened
1 cup (200g) granulated sugar, divided
1/4 cup (60ml) heavy cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup (120g) graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup (57g) unsalted butter, melted
1 pound (454g) fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced


In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and 1 cup of sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and the eggs, one at a time, until well combined.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the creamed butter mixture until a dough forms.

Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the chilled dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using a 3-inch round cookie cutter, cut out circles from the dough.

Gently press the dough circles into a cone shape and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Allow the cones to cool completely on a wire rack.

In a large bowl, beat the softened cream cheese with 1/2 cup of sugar until smooth and creamy. Add the heavy cream, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, and the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar, and beat until well combined and slightly thickened.

In a small bowl, mix together the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter until well combined.

To assemble, spoon a tablespoon of strawberry preserves into the bottom of each cone. Top with a layer of the cream cheese mixture, then a layer of sliced strawberries. Repeat the layers until the cones are filled to the top, ending with a layer of cream cheese mixture.

Sprinkle the graham cracker crumb mixture over the top of each cone.

Refrigerate the assembled cones for at least 2 hours before serving to allow the flavors to meld and the filling to set.

Serve chilled, and store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
