Cook's Notes

For truly white stripes, cover alternating rows with just confectioners' sugar rather than lightly dusted strawberries.

    This recipe was great for a cookout, because of the individual servings. The squares did take quite a bit of effort to cut. I would recommend using white raspberries as the white stripes and the strawberries as the red stripes, so you don't have to add sugar.

    Also, I used whole wheat pastry flour and substituted flax meal for 1/4 cup of the flour and it was scrumptious -

    YUMS! This recipe was pretty straight forward, looks and tastes great. I used sliced white peaches for the white stripes rather than sugar dusted strawberries. I will definitely make it again, but I'll decrease the crust next time because it is about 1:1 crust vs. cake, and I prefer my cheesecake a little cheesier.

    The cheesecake flag looked great and tasted great. It is a simple recipe to make for a crowd, and everyone raved about it!

    This recipe was easier than I thought it would be, and tasted and looked great! I made it in a disposable half sheet cake pan, which made it super easy to transport to a party. Yum!

    Everyone could barely keep their hands off this cake until serving time on Independence Day! A number of people in my family don't care for cheesecake but tried this because it was so delicious looking. They all loved it! The crust-cheesecake ratio is 1:1 so non-cheesecake loving friends and family will find it enjoyable. I didn't have a 13x18 pan but my 11x17 rimmed cookie sheet worked just fine!

    This cake was a HIT at the 4th of July party. Lots of compliments on the look and taste. We would make it again for sure. Conveniently, I found a 13x18 pan by Martha at Macy's.
