Raspberry Cheesecake Slice

It's already August and soon summer will come to an end. I try to enjoy all the locally grown fruits as much as possible. Each trip to the produce place I will haul back way too much fruit for the 2 of us but everything just look so fresh and good and I just can't resist it. We like to eat them fresh but fruit like berries doesn’t last too long. They will dries up pretty fast in the fridge so I tried to put it in dessert and baking. For this cheesecake you can use any type of summer fruits like blueberries, strawberries, cherries, blackberries etc.

Crust:

150 gram Oreo cookies – crushed
50 grm melted butter



Cheesecake filling:

500 grm cream cheese
120 grm sugar
2 eggs
1 tbsp flour
80 grm sour cream
Zest and juice of a lemon
6 oz fresh raspberry

1. Prepare and greased an 8” x 8” square baking pan. Line it with parchment paper or aluminum foil and left some overhang on the side (for easy removal later on) Pre-heat the oven to 325 degree F.
2. Combined Oreo cookies crumbs with melted butter. Press into the base of the baking pan and let it chill in the fridge while you prepare the filling.
3. Beat cream cheese, sugar, flour, lemon zest and juice until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time and lastly add in the sour cream. Mix until well combined.
4. Pour mixture into prepared base, sprinkle the raspberries and bake the cheesecake for an hour. Allow it to cool complete before slicing. Serve chilled.

Hi,
Could let ne know whether I can steam-bake this lovely cheese cake.
Will the cheese cake's base be burnt if I baked according to your instruction ?
Thank you
