Why I Love This Recipe

This is so delicious when strawberries are at their peak!


Ingredients You'll Need

CRUST:
1 pkg. graham crackers (crushed)
4 T. butter (melted)
2 tsp. sugar

FILLING:
1 T. butter
4 oz. white chocolate
3 (8 oz.) pkgs. cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1 c. sugar
3 eggs
1/3 c. lemon juice
3 t. cornstarch
1 c. sour cream

TOPPING:
1 pint fresh strawberries
2 oz. white chocolate


Directions

Crust: Preheat oven to 350.


Combine graham crackers, melted butter and sugar.


Press into the bottom and up sides of a 9- or 10-inch springform pang or 10-in. deep pie pan.


Bake 10 minutes.


Take out of oven and cool.


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.


Bake for 45-50 minutes at 350.


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.


Topping: Wash strawberries and dry them completely in paper towels.


Stem them and cut them in half.


Arrange them on top of the cheesecake.


Take the white chocolate, place in a small sandwich bag and melt in the microwave.


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