Start Cooking

For the Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix crumb ingredients and press mixture into the bottom of two 9-inch round pans to form crusts.

  2. Bake for 10 minutes and let cool.

For the Filling

  1. Using an electric mixer or hand blender, mix the filling ingredients and pour 1/2 of mixture into the pans, on top of the crumbs.

  2. Bake for one hour in a water bath, and allow to cool in oven until room temperature, or about three hours, to prevent the cake from cracking.

For the Topping

  1. When cheesecakes are cool, pick a topping, and top the cheesecake. Refrigerate.

  2. For Topping #3: Cut stems off whole strawberries, and arrange on top of cheesecake, pointed ends upward. Mix a package of unflavored jello according to instructions and pour over the whole strawberries on the cake.

    Toppings

    Do I need the topping? Will it be sweet enough without it?

    I’ve been making this cheesecake a number of years with toppings & without. It tastes GREAT without the toppings too. I apologize for having your question “reported”. It was a mistake. I couldn’t remember how to respond to questions. So I pressed “report” to see if it would get me to this response page & it “reported” your question. I realized afterwards that I had to press on the rectangular shaped speech “bubble” to respond to your question.

    Crust

    Would I be able to use a store bought graham crackers crust instead of making the crust from scratch? The recipe for the crust in this cheesecake is delicious yet I do find it a bit time consuming. I don’t know if I will have the time or energy this year to make the crust from scratch even though I would love to.

    Simple to make & ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS in taste!

    I have been making this for years! This is my go to Cheesecake recipe. It’s simple to make & tastes ABSOLUTELY E DELICIOUS! Last year for the first time I drizzled Bakers Choice liquid marbleizing chocolate as a topping. (I guess you could melt chocolate on your own & drizzle that too.) It was DELICIOUS. I definitely will use that choice of topping again IYH.

    Crust

    Would you be able to tell me how many graham crackers to use for the crust? It says one package (1/3 box) does that mean one of the packs In the box? Like 5 or 6 cookies?

    Yes, one of the packs inside the box- not sure exactly how many crackers that would be.

    Water Bath

    Hi, What does it mean when the recipe says to bake in a water bath?

    Hi, a water bath is when you put your cheesecake pan into a much bigger pan and fill the bigger pan with 2 inches of boiling water. If this is your first time trying it, I would recommend googling it to see pictures exactly how to do it. This is a technique that many people do to try and avoid their cheesecake from cracking. However, it is not a necessary step.
