Baked Cheesecake

Who doesn’t like cheesecake? I can’t think of one single person I know who doesn’t love this sinful dessert. I don’t make “real” cheesecake often, I usually opt for my quick cheesecake recipe… because it is quick but this one is a nice treat when I feel like making the real thing!


Here are the ingredients I use to make the cheesecake… minus the lazy “canned” pie filling on top!

I start wrapping the base of the springform pan with aluminum foil and then by making the crust. I mix together the graham crumbs and brown sugar before adding the melted butter/ margarine and mixing well.

I press the mixture into the bottom of the pan and a little bit up the sides.

I baked the crust at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes while I was making the filling.

To make the filling, I start by adding the 3 packages of softened cream cheese into the bowl of my stand mixer with the sugar and vanilla and whipping it until smooth.

I add the eggs, one at a time, whipping it well between eggs. Mix until smooth and there are no lumps of cream cheese.

Pour the mixture into the prebaked crust.

I place a pan of water in the bottom of the oven then place the cheesecake above it.

I baked it at 350 degrees for about 1 hour, until knife inserted in the middle came out clean.

I left the cheesecake in the oven after I turned the temperature off to finish cooking.

Once cooked I covered it and let it chill in fridge for a few hours before removing from the pan.

I cut it into slices and served with cherry pie filling on top.
