Classic NY Cheesecake

16 graham crackers
1/2 stick butter, softened
1 tb sugar

5 8-oz pkgs cream cheese, softened
1 3/4 c sugar
3 tb flour
1 ts grated lemon peel
1/4 ts salt
1/4 ts vanilla
5 lg eggs
2 lg egg yolks
1/4 c sour cream

2 pt strawberries
1 c water
1/2 c sugar
1 1/2 tb cornstarch
3 dr red food coloring

Add all ingredients into food processor. Blend well. Put in 10"
springform pan. Press evenly on bottom and 1/2 up the sides.

Beat cream cheese in large mixing bowl with electric mixer on medium
speed until smooth and fluffy, stopping to scrape down sides of
bowl occasionally. Gradually add sugar, flour, lemon peel, salt
and vanilla, beating constantly. Add eggs and yolks one at a time,
beating well after each addition. Scrape down sides once or twice.
Mix in sour cream; the mixture will be thin. Pour into crust lined

Place on baking sheet. Bake at 500 degree oven for 8 minutes or
until top is golden. Reduce temperature to 200 degrees and continue
to bake for 1 hour or until center jiggles slightly. Remove to wire
rack and cool in draft-free place at room temperature for 3 hours
or overnight.

Remove sides of springform. Make desired glaze and spread evenly
over top of cheescake as directed. Refrigerate until serving.

Slice 1 cup of the berries and place in a medium sized saucepan
with the water. Bring to a boil over moderate heat and cook for 2
minutes. Push berries with spoon through a strainer placed over
small bowl; scrape bottom of strainer to remove all pulp. Return
berries to saucepan and stir sugar and cornstarch. Bring to a boil
over moderate heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens.
Stir in food coloring. Cool to lukewarm.

Slice remaining berries in half and arrange in concentric circles
over top of cake. Spoon warm glaze over berries, letting some of
the glaze drip down the sides of the cake. Refrigerate until set,
about 1 hour.
