Ingredients

Crust:

  • 1 ¾ cups (150 gr) graham cracker crumbs (about 27 square sheets graham cracker)
  • 1/3 cup (75 gr) unsalted butter, melted
  • ¼ cup (50 gr) granulated sugar

Filling:

  • ½ cup (120 ml) heavy cream (I use full fat)
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 24 oz  (678 gr) cream cheese, softened (3 pkg 8oz. each)
  • 1/2 cup (100 gr) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (120 gr) sour cream
  • 1 can (14 oz - 397 gr) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • Strawberry sauce for serving (optional)

Instructions

Crust:

  • Lightly grease 9-inch round springform pan and line it with parchment paper.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine graham crumbs, butter, and sugar with a fork until evenly moistened.
  • Pour the crumbs mixture into the pan and press the crumbs down into the base and up the sides. Tip: Use the bottom of a measuring cup or glass to press down the crumbs evenly. Refrigerate until you make the filling.

Filling:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a medium bowl, whip cream with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form, about 1 minute. Set aside.
  • Mix cornstarch and water in a small bowl until smooth. Set aside.
  • Place the cream cheese in the bowl of an electric mixer, beat on low speed for 2-3 minutes until smooth and free of any lumps. Add sugar and sour cream and continue mixing until incorporated. Gradually add sweetened condensed milk and beat until creamy, for 1-2 minutes. Add lemon juice, vanilla extract and cornstarch mixture; beat until well incorporated. Turn off mixer.
  • Add whipped heavy cream and gently foil in using a spatula. Pour the mixture over the crust; tap gently to remove any air bubbles.
  • Place the cheesecake pan on a large piece of aluminum foil and fold up the sides around it (this is to keep the water from seeping into the cheesecake). Place the cake pan in a large roasting pan. Pour hot water into the roasting pan until the water is about halfway up the sides of the cheesecake pan.
  • Bake for 40 minutes or until the edges are just barely puffed but the filling is pale—you're not looking for golden brown.
  • Turn off the oven and leave the door closed for 40 more minutes (leave the cheesecake inside of the oven). The cheesecake will continue to cook, but slowly begin to cool as well.
  • After 40 minutes, remove the cheesecake from the oven. The center of the cheesecake should still wobble when you remove it; it will continue to cook as it cools on the counter. Remove the cheesecake from the water bath and wrapping. Let it cool at room temperature. Then refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  • Loosen the cheesecake from the sides of the pan by running a thin metal spatula around the inside rim. Unmold and transfer to a cake plate.

Notes

 
Tip: Slice the cheesecake with a thin knife that has been dipped in hot water and then wipe dry. Repeat this step before each cut.
 
Avoid overbaking the cheesecake or it will crack. The center of your cheesecake should still wobble when you remove it from the oven; it will continue to cook as it cools on the counter. 
 
Store cheesecake leftover in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
