Strawberry Cheesecake Recipes Ingredients :
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 ounces softened cream cheese
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup half-and-half
- 1 tsp. fresh orange zest, grated
- 1 1/2 cup strawberries
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 strawberry jam or jelly
Beat sugar and cream cheese together until smooth and creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla; set aside. Quarter some strawberries and mash the others. Combine strawberries and brown sugar in small bowl; set aside. Bring half-and-half to a boil in heavy, medium saucepan. Slowly beat the hot cream into the cheese mixture.
Pour all back into pan; place over low heat. Stir constantly with whisk or wooden spoon until custard thickens slightly. Be careful not to boil or the mixture will scramble. Remove from heat; pour though strainer into large, clean bowl.
Allow custard to cool slightly, then stir in orange zest and cream. Cover and refrigerate overnight or until cold.
Stir chilled custard; freeze in 1 or 2 batches in ice cream machine according to manufacturer's instructions. Add strawberries when ice cream is semi-frozen and allow machine to mix in, then stir in the jam or jelly and do not over-stir.
When finished, ice cream will be soft, but ready to eat. For firmer ice cream, transfer to freezer-safe container and freeze for at least 2 hours.
