Combining Honey Graham Pie Crust and acclaimed recipe for strawberry cheesecake on Allrecipes.com, I came up with this tweaked, potentially healthier version with full taste. My family loved it, and I will in the future try it with more fruit combinations. I wouldn't recommend going with fat-free products for cheesecakes such as these, as the cake may not set properly. Light and low-fat worked well for me. And using the cooling technique listed below, I managed to get no cracks!
