What You'll Need

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 1/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
  • 4 tablespoons seedless strawberry jam, divided
  • 6 drops red food coloring, divided
  • 1 (16-ounce) container sour cream
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen strawberry halves in syrup, thawed

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, butter, and 2 tablespoons sugar; mix well. Press mixture into a 10-inch springform pan, covering the bottom and sides. Chill until ready to fill.
  2. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, blend cream cheese and 1 cup sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, and 1 teaspoon vanilla; mix well. Reserve 1/2 cup of filling in a small bowl. Pour remaining filling over chilled crust.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons strawberry jam and 3 drops red food coloring to reserved filling; mix well. Drop spoonfuls onto cheesecake filling, then run a knife in a swirl pattern through cheesecake.
  4. Bake 55 to 60 minutes, or until firm. Remove from oven and let sit 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix sour cream, remaining sugar, and remaining vanilla with a spoon until well combined. Pour 1-1/2 cups of sour cream mixture over top of cheesecake. Mix remaining sour cream mixture with remaining strawberry jam and food color. Drizzle over top and swirl with a knife. Bake 5 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
  6. Refrigerate overnight. Remove from pan, slice, and drizzle with strawberries in syrup.

Melt Away Peanut Butter Fudge

We love it when a recipe is so light and creamy it literally just melts in your mouth. This delicious peanut butter fudge recipe does just that! Seriously, they say everything in moderation, but this sweet treat isn't going to make it easy.
