Creamy Cheesecake

Now here's a dessert that will get you motivated on a Monday, Creamy Cheesecake. Cheesecake, the ultimate comfort food. Grab a napkin so you can wipe the drool off your chin and let's get started..

Creamy Cheesecake -

In a small bowl, mix together 1-1/4 cups of graham cracker crumbs, 1/3 cup of melted butter and 1/4 cup of sugar.





Press mixture down evenly in the bottom of a spring form pan.


In a large mixing bowl, beat two 8 ounces packages of cream cheese until fluffy, add in 8 ounces of room temperature sour cream. Once the sour cream and the cream cheese is blended, pour in one 14 ounce can of condensed milk, the add 3 eggs (one at a time), and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Pour Mixture into pan and bake in a pre-heated 325 degree oven for 45 minutes.


Cool cheesecake and remove from pan. Let it chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

Garnish any way you like your imagination is your limit. We sprinkled some graham cracker crumbs on top and topped that off with a couple of rasberries.

NNNOOOOO!!!!! Now I'm hungry! I just love cheesecake - I could weigh a quarter ton if I ate as much as I'd really like!

Wow, cream cheese + condensed milk, I can imagine how silky smooth and rich that must have been!! The best cheesecake is the one you made, vanilla and served plain or with a sprinkling or crumbs or some fruit. Another thing I love about cheesecake is how easy it can be made, you just have to throw evertying in the food processor!
