I made this cheesecake for my mom on Mothers Day, and she declared it was by far the best cheesecake she's ever had. She declared it her cake after the first bite, and my dad and I seriously had to beg her to have a piece. It truly is incredible. And it looks absolutely gorgeous! Almost too pretty to eat. But once you have the first bite, you just can't stop eating it - it's so delicious. This is tied with my pumpkin pecan praline cheesecake for my favorite cheesecake of all time. I've had the strawberry cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory, and I promise you: this is better. The sweetened condensed milk makes it unique from other cheesecakes because it gives it a rich, creamy, dreamy texture. The sauce served on top adds more deliciousness as well...even though it's outstanding without it. This was also the first cheesecake I've ever made that didn't crack! Happiest day of my life right there(; My mom now wants it every Mothers Day.
