Bake 20 minutes at 300F then reduce oven temperature to 250F and bake 60 minutes longer or until sides are set and center is fluid but not sloshing. Turn off oven and allow cake to cool 1 hour in oven.

Remove and cool to room temperature. Chill, covered, overnight before slicing.

Serve topped with pureed strawberries or raspberries, adding bit a sugar, if desired.

Remove crust from oven. Reduce heat to 300F.

Fill an oven-proof dish with about 1 inch of warm water and place it at the back of the oven to provide steam for the cheesecake while it bakes.
