Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan to form an even layer.

Bake the crust for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and let it cool completely.

Prepare the Cheesecake Filling:

In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy.

Add the granulated sugar and beat until well combined.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Mix in the sour cream, vanilla extract, lemon zest, and lemon juice until the batter is smooth and well

combined.

Gently fold in the sliced strawberries.

Bake the Cheesecake:

Pour the cheesecake filling over the cooled crust, spreading it evenly.

Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until the center is set but still slightly jiggly.

Turn off the oven and leave the cheesecake inside with the door slightly open for 1 hour.

Remove the cheesecake from the oven and let it cool completely at room temperature.

Once cooled, refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 4 hours or overnight to allow it to set fully.

Prepare the Lemon Glaze:

In a small saucepan, combine the granulated sugar, lemon juice, water, and cornstarch.

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and becomes translucent.

Remove from heat and let it cool slightly before pouring over the chilled cheesecake.

Decorate the Cheesecake:

Before serving, decorate the top of the cheesecake with whipped cream, fresh strawberry halves, and

lemon zest curls.

Serve:

Slice and serve the cheesecake chilled, enjoying the delightful combination of creamy cheesecake,

tangy lemon, and fresh strawberries.
