Gather the ingredients - * Graham cracker crumbs * Butter * Sugar * Cream cheese * Sour cream * Eggs * Vanilla extract * Strawberries * Lemon juice * Cornstarch
Mix together the graham cracker crumbs, butter, and sugar until the mixture resembles wet sand. Press into the bottom and slightly up the sides of the springform pan. Set aside.
Beat the cream cheese, sour cream, and sugar until smooth. Add in one egg at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in vanilla extract.
Pour the cheesecake filling into the prepared crust before baking in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes. The cheesecake should be puffed and no longer jiggly in the center.
Prepare the strawberry topping by adding the strawberries, sugar, lemon juice, and cornstarch to a medium saucepan and cooking over medium heat for 8-12 minutes, or until thickened, set aside until needed.
Allow cheesecake to cool for one hour, the spread the strawberry topping on top, and place into fridge to chill for at least 4 hours.
