Strawberry Topping
1 ½ cups fresh strawberries chopped
5 tablespoon sugar
3 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoon cornstarch

White Chocolate Drizzle

½ cup white chocolate chips

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8×8 or 9×9 pan with a parchment sling. Then spray with baking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine the crumbs and melted butter until evenly combined. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan, using a flat measuring cup or tamper to press down and pack the crust firmly.
1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs,¼ cup butter
In a large bowl, use hand beaters to combine cream cheese, sugar, sour cream, and vanilla on medium speed until smooth. Scrape well.
2 (8 oz) pkgs cream cheese,½ cup granulated sugar,¼ cup sour cream,½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Add the eggs and combine on low speed until just combined. Don’t overmix.
2 eggs
Pour filling over the crust. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until the center is almost set, but still a bit jiggly. Remove and set on a wire rack to cool to room temperature (1-2 hours). Once cool, refrigerate in the pan for 3-4 hours.
Topping
While the cheesecake bars are baking, make the strawberry sauce. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, bring all the sauce ingredients to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and continue cooking, stirring often, until the sauce is thick and a deep red color, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
