    2       pt           Strawberries
    1       c            Water
      1/2   c            Sugar
    1 1/2   tb           Cornstarch
    3       dr           Red food coloring
 
   Crust: Add all ingredients into food processor. Blend
   well. Put in 10 springform pan. Press evenly on
   bottom and 1/2 up the sides.
   
   Filling: Beat cream cheese in large mixing bowl with
   electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and
   fluffy, stopping to scrape down sides of bowl
   occasionally. Gradually add sugar, flour, lemon peel,
   salt and vanilla, beating constantly. Add eggs and
   yolks one at a time, beating well after each addition.
   Scrape down sides once or twice. Mix in sour cream;
   the mixture will be thin. Pour into crust lined pan.
   
   Place on baking sheet. Bake at 500 degree oven for 8
   minutes or until top is golden. Reduce temperature to
   200 degrees and continue to bake for 1 hour or until
   center jiggles slightly. Remove to wire rack and cool
   in draft-free place at room temperature for 3 hours or
   overnight.
   
   Remove sides of springform. Make desired glaze and
   spread evenly over top of cheescake as directed.
   Refrigerate until serving.
   
   Strawberry Glaze: Slice 1 cup of the berries and place
   in a medium sized saucepan with the water. Bring to a
   boil over moderate heat and cook for 2 minutes. Push
   berries with spoon through a strainer placed over
   small bowl; scrape bottom of strainer to remove all
   pulp. Return berries to saucepan and stir sugar and
   cornstarch. Bring to a boil over moderate heat,
   stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Stir in
   food coloring. Cool to lukewarm.
   
   Slice remaining berries in half and arrange in
   concentric circles over top of cake. Spoon warm glaze
   over berries, letting some of the glaze drip down the
   sides of the cake. Refrigerate until set, about 1
   hour. Submitted By PGL@IGLOU.COM (DON THOMAS)  On   27
