Crust Setup: Combine graham cracker crumbs with sugar and melted butter until well blended. Firmly press the mixture into the bottom of a springform pan. Bake at 350°F (175°C) for 10 minutes, then allow to cool.

Raspberry Preparation: Blend 2 cups of raspberries, sugar, and lemon juice until pureed. Strain to remove the seeds for a smooth puree.

Cheesecake Base: Whip cream cheese with granulated sugar until smooth and creamy. Fold in sour cream. Add eggs one by one, incorporating each fully before adding the next, then mix in vanilla extract.

Folding in Raspberries: Carefully fold raspberry puree into the cream cheese mixture. Then, gently fold in the remaining 2 cups of whole raspberries, being careful to keep the berries intact.

Baking: Pour creamy filling over cooled crust, smoothing out the top. Gently tap the pan on the counter to release any air pockets. Bake at 350°F (175°C) for 45-55 minutes, or until the outer portion is set but the center retains a slight wiggle.

Cooling Phase: Switch off the oven and open the door slightly, letting the cheesecake cool inside gradually. After it has reached room temperature, transfer it to the refrigerator and chill thoroughly for at least 4 hours, or overnight for best results.

Finishing Touches: Once chilled, decorate the top of the cheesecake with fresh raspberries and mint leaves to enhance its visual appeal and add a burst of freshness.

Serve this delightful raspberry cheesecake and savor the fresh berries in every creamy forkful
