For the crust:

Coarsely chop walnuts in a food processor. Add graham cracker crumbs and process until the mixture looks like fine crumbs.

Add lightly toasted walnuts into a food processor.
Process until becomes coarse meal.

Whisk egg or egg white in a medium bowl until frothy. Stir in the crumb mixture, butter, oil and salt; combine well.

Pour the melted butter.
Pour the canola oil.
Here you have almost all the wet and dry ingredients together.
Process until they are well combined.

Press the mixture into the bottom and ½ inch up the sides of a 11 by 8-inch removable-bottom rectangular tart pan.

Turn the mixture out of the processor into the well-greased tart pan.
Press the mixture from the bottom to sides.

Set the pan on a baking sheet. Bake until dry and slightly darker around the edges, about 8 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

until the tart pan is evenly covered by the mixture and the shells forms.
Bake at 325 degrees F for about 15 minutes.

For the filling:

Increase the oven temperature to 350℉ (180℃).

Beat cream cheese, sour cream, eggs and 4 tablespoons maple syrup in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Spread the filling evenly, being careful not to break up the delicate crust.

Add the sour cream and cream cheese into a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer.
Add the 2 eggs.
Pour the creamy filling into the baked tart shell.
Smooth top with a spatula.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the cheesecake is set. Cool on a wire rack completely.

Bake at 350 degrees F oven for about 30 to 35 minutes until the filling is set.

Arrange strawberries on top the cheesecake to make a Canadian flag. Brush with remaining tablespoons of maple syrup. Chill for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Wash well, dry well, hulled and cored.
Here you have all the evenly sliced strawberries ready to decorate the cheesecake.

Decorate into a Canadian flag as the picture shows.

Creamy, smooth and delicious. The walnut crust is nutty and flakey, it goes very well with the creamy filling. The recipe is very easy to make, and decorate it into a Canadian flag to celebrate Canada Day, or make it at any occasion, everyone will love it.
