Step 1: Make the Raspberry Jelly

Bring the raspberries, sugar and water to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Mix well, breaking apart the raspberries with the end of your spoon. Allow to boil for 7 minutes, then remove from heat and allow to cool for 30 minutes. Then put it in the refrigerator to chill.

Step 2: Make the Graham Cracker Crust

In a small bowl, mix together the granulated sugar, brown sugar cinnamon, and graham cracker crumbs. Add the butter, and mix well. It should get kind of clumpy now, and should stick together if you press it between your fingers. Set it aside.

Step 3: Make the Cheesecake

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, and cream cheese until well blended. Add the heavy whipping cream and mix until combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, blending well after each addition. Stir in the lemon juice and vanilla extract.

This cheesecake is a fav with friends & family. It's what I'm always asked to bring. Thanks. Em
Very beautiful photography!
How much flour do you add to the cheese cake?
I really don't think flour goes in the cheese cake mix.

This hands down is the best recipe for homemade cheesecake!
I have made this countless times for various occasions and is always a hit, I can surely say I have found my one go-to recipe and will not be using another. The jelly is perfect you can make either raspberry, strawberry or mixed berries (blueberry is a bit bland) the only remark I can make is the crust portion makes about 16 "cupcakes", I always have a remainder cheesecake mix to make an additional 12 cupcakes or one round sized 12' pan.
