    There are a hundred ways to top a cheesecake, but only one this delightful {in my book}. This strawberry pinot reduction takes even the basics from boring to glory.

    To Make This Cheesecake Topping You Will Need:

    It only takes 3 ingredients to make this elegant dessert topping!

    • Strawberries: As fresh as possible and sliced thinly.
    • Pinot Noir: Use your favorite make – it doesn’t have to be overly expensive.
    • Sugar

    How To Make A Pinot And Strawberry Cheesecake Topping

    This delicious pinot and strawberry dessert topping comes together so quickly!

    1. In a sauce pan on a medium heat, add the strawberries, wine and sugar.
    2. Reduce. As with any reduction, the longer you cook it, the thicker and more syrupy it gets.

    Variations

    This reduction is just heavenly as is, but I would suspect that other fruits such as blackberries, cherries or even plums would also work well.

    What To Serve With Pinot And Strawberry Cheesecake topping

    As the name suggests, this reduction makes an excellent topping for a cheesecake, whether you make your own or want to elevate a store bought one. This topping can be used for so many other deserts too. Try it on shortcake, ice cream, brownie or a waffle & your taste buds will never be the same!

    When it comes to cheesecakes, you absolutely can serve them in their most simple form, but every now and again I like to make it more special by adding this homemade sauce. It turns a homemade cheesecake into a restaurant quality one. It’s also a great way to give a store bought cheesecake an added flourish!

    How Long Does This Fruit Reduction Keep?

    When I make this wine and strawberry cheesecake topping, I often make a double, if not triple batch as it keeps really well. Pop it into mason jars and it will keep for a good week, if not longer in the fridge. It also freezes really well. Let it cool to room temperature and then place in a freezable container.

    Cheesecake and Ice Cream Toppings Perfect for Any Occasion

    This sauce is our Spring/Summer favorite! I serve it at Easter, Mother’s Day, Fourth of July & all too many days in between! It’s such a simple sauce but offers so much flavor.

    For times when just fruit toppings won’t cut it, try this amazing secret chocolate sauce, recreated from a St. Louis staple.
