Awesome rich cheesecake with luscious fresh strawberry topping

Top Review by Hissy Hussy

Very good, smooth & creamy; however, on step 4 you didn't indicate how long to leave it in the oven after adding the sour cream topping. Since I didn't notice this until I was already there, I guessed and left it in for 10 minutes.
