To make

This recipe is for a basic cheesecake that can be edited to suit your tastes. My family's favorite toppings are chocolate, caramel, and walnuts!


Preheat oven to 350°f/175°c

  1. To make the crust: combine graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar, and butter. Press into a springform 8 inch circular pan along the bottom and halfway up the sides.
  2. Beat cream cheese until fluffy.
  3. Add 1 cup of sugar and vanilla.
  4. Beat in eggs, one at a time.
  5. Blend in sour cream.
  6. Spread mixture in prepared pan over the crust.
  7. Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until top just slightly moves when removed from oven.
  8. Turn oven off but leave the cake in, and leave the door sightly open so that the cake can slowly cool for 1 hour.
  9. Chill in refrigerator for 4 hours or overnight.
  10. Serve with cherries, strawberries, chocolate, or sour cream as per your tastes.
