New York Cheese Cake

This recipe is a family favorite from the kitchen of my Great Aunt. Our family enjoyed this recipe for many birthday and holiday celebrations.

1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs (9-10 crackers)
6 T. melted butter
1/4 cup sugar or cane juice crystals
2 lbs cream cheese
3/4 cup sugar or cane juice crystals
2 eggs (lightly beaten)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tb cornstarch
1 cup sour cream

Combine ingredients and press into a 9 inch spring form pan or pie pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Or chill in the freezer for 10 minutes.
Beat together cream cheese and sugar till creamy and light. Beat in eggs, vanilla and cornstarch ONLY till thoroughly mixed. Stir in sour cream till mixture is well blended.

Pour into crust and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Allow cake to cool in the oven with the oven door open (propped open with a wooden spoon) for 3 hours. Chill completely. Then serve with fresh berries or chocolate drizzles.
