Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Crust:
    • Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C).
    • In a medium bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter until well combined.
    • Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan.
    • Bake for 10 minutes, then set aside to cool.
  2. Make the Cheesecake Filling:
    • In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth.
    • Gradually add the sugar and continue beating until fully combined and creamy.
    • Add the vanilla extract and mix well.
    • Beat in the eggs, one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next.
    • Mix in the sour cream and heavy cream until the batter is smooth and creamy.
    • Pour the cheesecake filling over the cooled crust and spread it evenly.
  3. Bake the Cheesecake:
    • Place the cheesecake in the preheated oven and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until the center is just set and slightly jiggly.
    • Turn off the oven and let the cheesecake cool in the oven with the door slightly open for about 1 hour.
    • Remove the cheesecake from the oven and let it cool completely at room temperature.
    • Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight, to set.
  4. Prepare the Fruit Topping:
    • In a large bowl, combine the strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, pineapple, and raspberries.
    • Drizzle with honey and lemon juice, and gently toss to coat the fruit evenly.
  5. Assemble the Cheesecake:
    • Once the cheesecake is fully set, remove it from the springform pan and place it on a serving plate.
    • Spoon the fruit mixture over the top of the cheesecake, spreading it out evenly.
    • Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
