Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 stick butter
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 3 packages of cream cheese, softened
  • 1⅓ cups sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • ¾ cup sour cream
Directions
  1. Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter together in a bowl and mix well. Dump the mixture into the bottom of your pan and use the bottom of a glass to press them down.
  2. In a separate bowl, whip your cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar, cornstarch and vanilla. Mix in your eggs one at a time, followed by the sour cream. Pour onto your crust.
  3. Bake at 350º for 50 minutes. You want it to puff up a little and be set but not brown. Turn off the oven and crack the oven door. Let the cheesecake cool in the oven for 20 minutes and then move to the counter.
  4. If using a springform pan, release the sides before transferring the cheesecake to the fridge to cool. Serve with strawberry sauce.
