  • 3tbsplight corn syrup
  • 4cupgraham crackers,(about 4 sheets), finely ground
  • 3cupsugar,(plus 3 tbsp)
  • 3tbspunsalted butter
  • 13lbcream cheese,plus 13 oz
  • ¼tspsalt
  • 2largeeggs
  • 1vanilla bean
  • ozmascarpone cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Place strawberries in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with corn syrup, and toss gently to coat.

  2. Bake until syrup thickens and strawberries turn deep red and shrink slightly. This will be about 1 hour 30 minutes. Transfer strawberries and syrup to a medium bowl, and mash with a potato masher. Let cool completely.

  3. Raise oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Stir together graham cracker crumbs, 3 tablespoons sugar, and the melted butter in a small bowl. Press mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan to make an even layer.

  4. Bake for about 10 minutes, until crust is firm to the touch and has just darkened. Transfer pan to a wire rack, and let crust cool completely.

  5. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F. Put cream cheese into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; mix on medium-low speed until creamy.

  6. Scrape down sides of bowl, then gradually add remaining cup sugar and the salt. Scrape down sides of bowl; add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing well after each addition.

  7. Scrape down sides of bowl, and mix in vanilla bean seeds and mascarpone until very creamy and no lumps remain. This will take about 3 minutes. (Reserve vanilla bean for another use.)

  8. Transfer 5 cups cream cheese mixture to bowl with mashed strawberries; stir to combine. Pour strawberry-cream cheese mixture on top of crust; smooth with an offset spatula.

  9. Carefully spoon dollops of plain cream cheese mixture on top, smoothing with an offset spatula.

  10. Wrap the exterior of the springform pan in 2 layers of foil; set in a large roasting pan. Fill roasting pan with boiling water until water reaches halfway up the sides of the springform pan.

  11. Bake cheesecake for about 1 hour until set. Remove springform pan from water bath, and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

  12. Refrigerate until cold. This will be at least 4 hours (up to overnight).
