In our family cheesecake is the celebration dessert! My husband and I even had a cheese cake made as our wedding cake. I make a cheese cake for thanksgiving, Christmas, birthdays, any holiday really! I’ve come to love making it and I have the easiest never fail recipe for it! This time I made it without the crust however, I will put the crust recipe on here as well!
Crust! You can use your favorite cookies or gram crackers or cereal! All you do is put desired amount into a food processor and crush them until they are fine crumbs. Then add 2 tablespoons of melted butter and stir it in. Form it at the bottom of your spring form pan and bake at 350 degrees for 10 mins. Then let cool while you whip up the yummy filling!
Two 8 ounce packages of cream cheese.
Chef note: I like the name brand cream cheeses. However, this time I used the store brand and it tasted good!
1 egg (room temperature)
1 cup granulated sugar ( I used half a cup so it wasn’t so sweet)
Add sugar and cream cheese into the mixer and mix until combined. Add the egg and vanilla. Mix until combined. Then simply pour in your crust. With the oven set to 350 degrees bake for 35-40 mins. Or until the center is set. (Doesn’t move around).
Placing the spring form pan in a cookie sheet with water will help the cake to bake evenly!
For this cake I made a fresh cherry topping. Cheese cake is always best served cold! 😁
