Am I the only one who starts salivating at the mention of cheesecake? I don’t know what it is about it but it’s just so delicious! This is a recipe I’ve been making since I was a teenager and it hasn’t failed me yet so I decided to make it for our recent staff party.
Graham cracker crumbs / Graham cracker-style crumbs
2 packages cream cheese (250g each)
½ cup sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla
Step 1: Prepare crust following instructions on box. I had never used gluten free fake graham cracker crumbs but they were easy to use. Press into dish.
Step 2: Blend cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Add in eggs.
Step 3: Pour filling into crust and bake at 350 for approximately 40 minutes (or until center is almost set). Remove from oven, cool, and refrigerate.
It’s meant to be cooked in a round crust but I decided to make it in a rectangular dish and cut it into squares so it would go farther. The cooking time above is for a round pan but I cut it down by about 8 minutes.
To serve I had three different toppings: cherry pie filling, chocolate sauce, and homemade blueberry jam. That way people could choose one (or more) depending on appealed to them.
