Hey y’all! So many of you have been requesting a ton of strawberry dessert recipes. Well let me just remind you that I can’t do a lot of them. WHY? Because Mrs. Rosie is allergic to strawberries! Yes indeed I am allergic to them, and will not be baking anything with them anytime soon. HOWEVER, there are a few strawberry desserts that I can make for you without risking my life. This strawberry shortcake cheesecake is one of them!
How in the world did I manage to make a strawberry shortcake cheesecake without using actual strawberries? I used strawberry gelatin! It gave me just enough strawberry flavor FOR ME. If you are one of those lucky people that can eat strawberries ( I dislike you!!! HAHA) ,you can add strawberries to the cake batter. There will be directions on how to do so in the recipe below.

Strawberry Shortcake Cheesecake with layers of strawberry cake, and cheesecake. This delicious cake is layered, and frosted with whipped cream cheese frosting, and sprinkled with strawberry shortcake crumbles!
I’m allergic to strawberries, therefore I didn’t add the ½ cup of strawberries to my cake. It still came out fine, but fill free to add strawberries to yours. You can also add strawberries on top of the cake!
For the cake I used Duncan Hines Classic White Cake. You can use a different cake mix if you choose. Just make sure that you follow the back of the cake box, but replace the water with milk.
The butter cookies that I used were Lil Dutch Maid Butter Ring Cookies.
