3. To make the berry sauce, purée the berries, sugar, and remaining 1 tbsp lemon juice in a food processor. Cover and refrigerate.

4. Transfer the cheesecake to a wire cake pan. Run a knife around the inside of the pan. Cool completely in the pan. Cover and refrigerate at least 5 hours, until chilled. Remove the sides of the pan, slice, and serve, with the berry purèe.
