    The Big Cheese's Note:

    WOW is this good! I found this recipe in an old cheesecake cookbook called "Cheesecake Madness" that I had purchased at a church rummage sale. I don't know why someone didn't want a book with a recipe this delicious in it. It is nice and thick, melts in your mouth, and forget about dieting...this cheesecake is chock full of diet-wrecking temptations!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Crust

    Filling

    Topping

    Directions:

    1. 1
      You will also need: 9-inch springform pan.
    2. 2
      To prepare crust place graham crackers, sugar and butter in a small mixing bowl. Blend well with fingers or a pastry blender. Press into the bottom of a well-buttered 9" springform pan. Chill in the freezer or refrigerator for about 30 minutes while you prepare the batter and strawberries.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and heavy cream until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, making sure that the mixture is smooth after beating in each egg.
    4. 4
      Add the lemon juice, brandy extract, sour cream, vanilla, and flour and continue beating until very smooth and creamy.
    5. 5
      Fold in the chopped strawberries. Pour the mixture into the chilled springform pan that you have placed on a cookie sheet (the batter will come to the top of the pan so do not be alarmed).
    6. 6
      Bake in a preheated 425° oven for 15 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 275° and continue to bake for 1 hour.
    7. 7
      Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool for 3 hours. While the cake is cooling, marinate the sliced strawberries in the Amaretto and sugar for about 3 to 4 hours.
    8. 8
      Arranges the slices decoratively on top of the cooled cheesecake and bake in a 350° oven for 7 minutes.
    9. 9
      Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely for 2 hours. Remove the sides of the springform pan and refrigerate overnight.
    10. 10
      Remove the cake from the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.

      Creamy and delicious! I couldn't find brandy extract, so I used almond extract. Didn't have a lot of amaretto flavor to me, so next time I'm putting some amaretto in the cheesecake batter.

      One of the creamiest cheesecakes I've made. Perfect cake to out-do "Baking Queen" mother.
