New York cheesecake

Sunday, December 14, 2008

I’ve posted several cheesecake recipes already but this is my personal favorite. I like it plain. Just the cheesecake and me. This recipe makes 16 servings so it’s great for parties too.

What you’ll need:

6 graham crackers, crushed
1 c + 3 Tbl sugar, divided
3 Tbl butter, melted
5 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
3 Tbl flour
1 Tbl vanilla
1 c sour cream
1 can cherry pie filling (if desired)

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Line a 13 x 9 inch pan with foil. Mix together the graham cracker crumbs, 3 Tbl sugar and butter and press into the bottom of the pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Beat the cream cheese, sugar, flour and vanilla until blended. Add sour cream and mix some more. Add the egg one at a time, mixing on low speed until blended. Pour over crust. Bake 40 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool completely. Refrigerate 4 hours. Using the foil to lift the cheesecake, remove from pan and place on individual plates or one large plate. Top with pie filling if desired.

Cost:
graham crackers - $1.09
sugar - $1.99/4 lb bag
butter - $1.75/pound
cream cheese - $2.06
flour - $2.12/5 pound bag
vanilla - $2.25
