Cheesecake with Fruit Topping

Crust
1 box Vanilla Wafers
1/2 cup Pecans
1 stick (1/2 Cup)
Butter, Melted
1-1/2 teaspoon Vanilla

Filling
3 packages 8
Ounce Cream Cheese
1-1/2 cup Sugar
4 whole Eggs
1/2 cup Sour
Cream

Topping
2 cups Blackberries, Strawberries, Blueberries,
or berries of choice
1/2 cup Sugar
2 Tablespoons Water

Preheat oven to 350F.

Pulse vanilla wafers and pecans
in a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, add vanilla wafers and
pecans to a ziplock back and use a rolling pin to crush. After everything is
crushed, add vanilla and melted butter. Mix until everything is well
incorporated.

Spray springform baking pan with nonstick spray. Transfer
crust mixture to pan and pat down with your hands or the bottom of a glass to
make it smooth. It’s okay if some goes up the side.

For the filling, beat
3 packs of cream cheese and sugar together until smooth. Next add eggs one at a
time, beating after each addition. Now beat in 1/2 cup of sour cream until
smooth and transfer to springform pan to coat crust.

Cook for 1 hour and
10 minutes. Then turn off the oven and open the door and allow the cheesecake to
sit in the oven for an extra 15 minutes.

For topping, add berries, 2
tablespoons of water, and sugar to a pan and cook at medium/high heat for about
five minutes, until juices start to come out. Add topping to cheesecake. Let
cheesecake sit in refrigerator at least two hours before serving, longer is
better.
