Prep Time: 30 min
Cook Time: 1 hour
Chill Time: 5 hours
Yields 12 slices

Ingredients
Crust
1 (7 oz) pkg ‘Schar’ Gluten Free Shortbread Cookies, crushed
2 Tbs butter, melted

Filling
4 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
1 1/2  cups sugar
3/4 cup milk
4 eggs
1 (8 oz) sour cream
1 Tbs vanilla
1/4 cup gluten free all-purpose flour

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease round 9-inch springform cake pan.
2. In medium bowl, mix short bread cookie crumbs and melted butter with fork. Press onto bottom of prepared pan with flat spatula. (Spray bottom of flat spatula with cooking spray to reduce sticking)
3. In large bowl, mix cream cheese with sugar until creamy and smooth. Blend in milk and eggs; stir well, about 3 min. Mix in sour cream, vanilla and flour until well blended and smooth. Pour filling into prepared crust.
4. Bake for 1 hour. Turn off oven and continue to keep cake in oven with door closed for 2 hours; this helps prevent cracking. Chill in refrigerator for 3 hours or until ready to serve.

Cracking occurs in cheesecakes from over mixing the filling or having too many air bubbles. Rapid chilling of the cheesecake may also cause cracking. This method of cooling will prevent cracking, but be sure not to over mix the filling.

If cracking does occur; thinly slice strawberries on top to cover the cracking before serving. Most people will not even notice the cracking, because the cheesecake is simply divine.

This dessert can be served as is, as well as with berries of your choice. Enjoy!
