Directions

  1. Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, cinnamon, and butter in a bowl. Press onto the bottom of an ungreased 9-inch springform pan. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  3. Place strawberries and cornstarch into a blender. Cover and puree until smooth. Pour strawberry sauce into a saucepan.
  4. Bring to a boil over high heat. Boil and stir until sauce is thick and shiny, about 2 minutes. Set aside 1/3 cup strawberry sauce; cool. Cover and refrigerate remaining sauce for serving.
  5. Beat cream cheese in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy; gradually beat in condensed milk. Mix in lemon juice and vanilla extract, then beat in eggs on low speed until just combined. Pour half of cream cheese mixture over crust; drop half of reserved strawberry sauce by 1/2 teaspoonfuls on cream cheese layer. Carefully spoon remaining cream cheese mixture over sauce; drop remaining strawberry sauce by 1/2 teaspoonfuls on top. Cut through top layer only with a knife to swirl strawberry sauce.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until center is almost set, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer. Refrigerate overnight. Serve reserved strawberry sauce with cheesecake. If the sauce it too thick, stir in water.

This is a great cheesecake recipe! Very creamy and delicious. A couple suggestions: only use 1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon as it is a very potent spice and 2 whole teaspoons makes the crust extremely sweet. You can also use natural unsweetened strawberries either frozen or fresh and the cheesecake tastes just as good!

I have used this reciepe many times, it always turns out awesome. Love it, I have altered it a few times and made other variations like blueberry, caramel applea, and maple bacon it all turns out great.

Tastes amazing!!! Few quick tips, only mix the batter on low or you will get too much air in the cheesecake, and if you want it a bit firmer try adding 2 tbs of flour. Good Luck :)

Made this twice- first time the box of unopened graham cracker crumbs smelled a little "funny", but I kept going. Ended up throwing it out and now I make my own crumbs from whole graham crackers. Only change was to leave some of the strawberries out of the puree to use on top of the cheesecake when serving. My husband loved it!

this is an awesome recipe!! i did change a few things but it was really very good. the only things i changed was i did use store bought graham cracker crust, and it made 2 cakes! i also used raspberry pie filling! so i kind of cheated but the cheesecake part stayed the same and everyone raved about it! i will be using it again

Awesome! I have never made cheesecake before and wanted to try. This recipe was easy to make and everyone who ate it raved about it. Didn't change anything in the recipe but next time I will probably cut back on the cinnamon as others have mentioned.
