Quick and Easy Divine French Cheesecake

Cheesecake was already a popular dish in Ancient Greece even before it was conquered by the Romans.  The latter only adopted it after this.  Cheesecake is a divine desert with soft cheese toppings and usually graham crackers for its base. 
The good thing about cheesecake is that you can either choose to bake  or just refrigerate it.  It is believed that cheesecake was first made by a Greek Physician Aegimus (adapted from History of Cheesecake)

Cheesecake can also have different flavours depending on what you like.  You can be adventurous as much as you like. 

1 3/4 cups Graham cracker crumbs (or granita crackers)
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup sugar
4 8-ounces cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup sour cream

Combine the crust ingredients. Mix well.
Press onto bottom and sides of a greased 9 inch spring form pan.
Chill in while preparing filling.
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar until smooth and light.
Beat in eggs, vanilla and cornstarch, just until blended. Stir in sour cream.
Pour mixture into prepared crust and bake 30 to 40 minutes at 165C. Cool.
Serve with fruits
