Strawberry cheesecake

By now you should all be seeing fresh strawberries, and some lettuce, spinach and other greens in your gardens. Here is a treat for you. This is a recipe handed down from my grandmother.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hours

1 lb cream cheese

1 tsp vanilla

1 lb ricotta cheese

4 Tbsp cornstarch

1 cups sugar

5 beaten eggs

1 pt sour cream*

Cream together cheeses. Add sugar and mix. Add five beaten eggs and vanilla. Add cornstarch one Tbsp at a time. Fold in sour cream. Pour into greased springform pan. Bake. Cool in pan.

n For those of you who would like to cut the fat down a little you can substitute yogurt for the sour cream. It changes the texture of the cake a little, but doesnt hurt the flavor.

If you must have a graham cracker crust you can make one from the recipe that follows. Press it into the bottom and sides of the pan before baking.

I also have a strawberry glaze to put on the top. I prefer my cheesecake naked with just the strawberry topping!

Crust:

2 cups graham cracker crumbs

cup sugar

cup butter

Combine all ingredients until blended well. Press onto bottom and sides of the spring pan. Chill before filling with cheesecake batter.

Glaze:

2 cups fresh strawberries

cup sugar

cup water

2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

2 Tbsp cornstarch

cup water

After the cheesecake has been cooled in the refrigerator, mash one cup of berries. Place in a saucepan with sugar, half a cup of water, and lemon juice; bring to boil. Mix cornstarch and one quarter cup water; slowly add to hot fruit mix. Boil about two minutes to thicken, cool and then strain.

Top cheesecake with remaining berries, then pour glaze over the top. Chill two hours before serving.
