  1. Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar and butter. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9” springform pan. Refrigerate for 30 min.
  2. In a blender or food processor, combine strawberries and corn starch; cover and process until smooth.
  3. Pour into a saucepan; bring to a boil. Boil and stir for 2 minutes. Set aside 1/3 cup of strawberry sauce; cool. Cover and refrigerate remaining sauce for serving.
  4. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy.
  5. Gradually beat in milk. Add lemon juice; mix well. Add eggs, beat on low just until combined.
  6. Pour half of the cream cheese mixture over crust. Drop half of the reserved strawberry mixture by 1/2 teaspoons into cream cheese layer. Carefully spoon remaining cream cheese mixture over sauce.
