Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C).

Blend flour and brown sugar in a food processor. Add butter and pulse mixture until butter is well combined. Press into an 8-inch (20 cm) spring form pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden. Cool to room temperature. Butter the sides of the pan and reserve.


Increase oven temperature to 450 °F (230 °C). Using a mixer with a paddle or whisk attachment, beat Cream cheese until very smooth. Add sugar and beat until completely incorporated. Blend in lemon juice and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well between additions.

Scrape mixture into crust and smooth. Bake for 10 minutes. Reduce temperature to 200 °F (100 °C) and continue to bake for 1 hour. Run a knife around the edge of the cake, tent loosely with aluminium foil and return to oven. Turn off oven and let cake sit for 40 minutes. Chill at least 2 hours before serving.


Blend lemon juice and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Add berries and mint and gently toss to combine. Spoon over cheesecake just before serving.
