This dessert really takes the cake! Two decadent favorites are combined into one! Creamy, delicious, no-bake, vanilla bean cheesecake is made with a shortbread crust. It is then layered with a blend of strawberry puree, fresh strawberries, and shortbread crumbles, and topped off with a rich sour cream and cream cheese vanilla creme. So, you may have your cakes...and eat them, too!
