Filling: Melt butter and white chocolate.


Beat cream cheese and sugar until creamy.


Add and mix until combined in this order: eggs, lemon juice, cornstarch, melted white chocolate and sour cream.


Pour into crust and let rest about 5 minutes so air bubbles rise to top of batter.

If the center does not appear to be set, close oven door and turn off heat.


Check in another 15-20 minutes.


Take out of oven and let cool completely.

Snip a corner of the sack and squeeze the chocolate on top of the strawberries in any pattern you wish.

This is so delicious when strawberries are at their peak!

Just looking at this cheesecake I think I gained 10 pounds but when I tasted it, well, I just absolutely melted! It was so full of flavor, every mouth full I couldn't help but make "happy" noises! MMMMMMMM!!!

A dash of local for every season
