Homemade Cheesecake with Fresh Berries

Cheesecake is so delicious. I love to eat it plain or with fresh berries. You can add any berries you like for the topping. I’ve used raspberries and blackberries. Just use whatever you have on hand. My husband loves strawberry cheesecake with whipped topping. The perfect dessert to end your day and great for taking to parties. The guests will leave you with an empty plate!Homemade Cheesecake

Filling Ingredients:

  • 3 packages (8 ounce) of Cream Cheese (Softened)
  • 1 ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 4 eggs
  • Fresh Berries For Topping

Homemade Cheesecake

Crust Ingredients:

  • 40 Nilla Wafers (Finely Crushed)
  • 2 tbs white sugar
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla

Homemade Cheesecake


  1. In a bowl mix all your crust ingredients together. Press evenly into a spring form pan and sides. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 6-8 minutes. Once done allow to cool for a few minutes before you pour in your cheesecake filling.
  2. For the filling, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. I used my KitchenAid Mixer for this. Then add one egg at a time. Next toss in your sour cream and mix until well incorporated!
  3. Pour mixture into the crust, and smooth the top over. Then bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Turn oven off and open the door and allow it to sit in the oven for 15 minutes. Then remove and allow to cool.
  4. Then refrigerate and serve with fresh berries on the side, or put on top of the cheesecake.
