"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

1- 8 oz container of pink fruit glaze combined with cut fresh strawberries and 1/4 cup sugar

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat over to 300 degrees. Combine butter, box of graham crumbs and sugar. Press firmly on bottom and side of 9 or 11 inch springform pan. Crumbs have the right mixture of butter when you squeeze a fist full and it starts to hold the shape. Too much butter will burn the crust. In a large mixing bowl, beat cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in the sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Add eggs and mix well. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake 45-55 minutes depending on your oven. Cheesecake springs back when lightly touched. Top will be slightly browned. Cool on wire rack. Serve slightly warm or chilled.

Personal Notes:
When fixing the graham crust, go about 3/4 up side of spring pan, then when you pour in cheesecake mixture, pour in and fill up the crust and "seal" the crumbs above the crumb line with your filling. It makes a pretty cheesecake when you are ready to serve.
