Rich and decadent with a bright and fruity strawberry swirl, this cheesecake is an impressive dessert for special occasions. Make it a day in advance to give it time to chill overnight in the refrigerator.
I used pretty big dollops of puree, some of which sunk into the cheesecake. I love slicing into a fruity center, so if you take this route be aware that the puree may destabilize the center a bit making parts of the cheesecake less firm. I keep the puree mostly on the top of the cheesecake, drop smaller amounts and swirl lightly.
