Strawberry Cheesecake

A classic recipe for a delicious Strawberry Cheesecake:


For the crust:

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

For the filling:

  • 24 ounces (680g) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs

For the strawberry topping:

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water


  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C).
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Stir until the mixture resembles wet sand.
  3. Press the crumb mixture firmly into the bottom of a 9-inch (23 cm) springform pan, creating an even crust. You can use the back of a spoon or the bottom of a glass to help with this.
  4. In a separate mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.
  5. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl to ensure everything is fully incorporated.
  6. Pour the cream cheese filling over the prepared crust in the springform pan. Smooth the top with a spatula.
  7. Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for about 50-60 minutes, or until the cheesecake is set and slightly golden around the edges. The center may still jiggle slightly, but it will firm up as it cools.
  8. Remove the cheesecake from the oven and let it cool completely on a wire rack. Once cooled, refrigerate it for at least 4 hours or overnight to chill and set.
  9. In a small saucepan, combine the sliced strawberries, sugar, cornstarch, and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and the strawberries release their juices. This should take about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and let it cool.
  10. Once the cheesecake has chilled and set, carefully remove it from the springform pan. Pour the cooled strawberry topping over the cheesecake, spreading it evenly.
  11. Place the cheesecake back in the refrigerator for another hour or two to allow the strawberry topping to set.
  12. Before serving, you can garnish the cheesecake with additional fresh strawberries if desired.

Slice and serve your delicious homemade Strawberry Cheesecake, and enjoy!
