INSTRUCTIONS

MAKE THE CRUST

  • Move the oven rack to the lower third position and heat the oven to 350°F. Wrap the outer bottom of a 9-inch springform pan tightly with aluminum foil. 
  • Combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Press the crumb mixture into the bottom and about 2-inches up the sides of the pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool while you make the filling.

MAKE THE FILLING

  • Reduce the oven temperature to 300ºF. 
  • In a large mixing bowl beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. 
  • Add the sugar and sour cream, beat until well combined. Add the vanilla and salt, beat on low speed until smooth. 
  • Using a silicone spatula, gently stir in the eggs just until combined. Pour the batter over the prepared crust.
  • Fill a roasting pan with a few inches of boiling water and place the cheesecake in the center. 
  • Bake for 1 hour, OR until the edges are set and the center is slightly jiggly. Turn the oven off, leave the cheesecake in the water bath in the oven for another hour. 
  • Remove the cheesecake from the water bath and place it on a wire rack. Run a small knife around the outer edge of the cheesecake to loosen it from the pan and leave it to cool completely. 

MAKE THE SAUCE

  • Add the diced strawberries and cornstarch to the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth. Transfer to a medium saucepan and add the sugar.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened, about 15 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla, salt, and chopped strawberries. Set aside to cool for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Spread the topping evenly over the cheesecake and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
  • Remove the sides of the pan just before serving.

MAKE AHEAD TIP

  • The cheesecake will keep for up to 4 days covered and stored in the refrigerator.
  • The cheesecake can be frozen for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
