Philadelphia Cheesecake for Paige’s Birthday

My sister absolutely LOVES cheesecake.  If it is on a dessert menu, more than likely she will save room eating dinner just to have a little slice of cheesy heaven.  It was natural when I asked her what she wanted to have for dessert for her birthday, and cheesecake one.  I wanted to make a traditional NY style cheesecake without any accoutrements.  I took the Philadelphia Cream Cheese recipe off of the box and followed it to a T.  What I failed to follow though was the cooling to room temperature BEFORE putting it in the fridge.  I rushed the process trying to cool the cheesecake down for us to eat.  Needless to say, I  had to come up with a plan B to cover my cracks.  My defaults are always strawberries and chocolate.  A little Hershey’s chocolate sauce and some cut up strawberries and we were in business!
