Preheat oven to 325°F if using a 9-inch silver springform pan (or to 300°F if using a 9-inch dark nonstick springform pan). Mix cookie crumbs and margarine; press firmly onto bottom of pan.
Beat cream cheese, cottage cheese, sugar and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended. Pour over crust.
Bake 55 min. to 1 hour or until center is almost set. Run small knife or metal spatula around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim of pan. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Spread sour cream over top of cheesecake; top with strawberries just before serving. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.
