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.

    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.
