In fact, anyone can do it—and in four simple steps. Here's how: Start by making an easy, stovetop berry sauce, cooking the berries down into a thick, syrupy reduction. Cool the sauce before using for your cheesecake. Spoon the sour cream topping over the cheesecake filling and smooth with a spatula or the back of a spoon. Dollop berry sauce in spoonfuls over the top of the cheesecake batter. Using a large butter knife, create feathery rounded swirls, inserting the knife just tip-deep into the batter. Bake and voila, your berry-swirl cheesecake is ready to be admired (then devoured).
