Recipe-Everett’s Cheese Cake

January 20th, 2011

Base:

1- 1/2 C Graham cracker crumbs

3 T melted butter

2 T Sugar

Blend ingredients and press into a 9″ spring form pan.  Bake in a warm oven set @ 300 degrees for 5 minutes, let cool.

Filling:

2 lbs Cream cheese softened to room temperature

1 C sugar

1 tsp Lemon juice

1 tsp Vanilla

4 Eggs separated

Blend together cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla for 5 minutes or longer til smooth and creamy. Drop in egg yolks one at a time, beating well after each one.  Beat egg whites til stiff and fold into cream cheese mixture with a spatula. Pour over crumb base and bake 45 minutes at 300 degrees.

Topping: (If not using a fruit topping)

1 C Sour cream

1 T sugar

1 T vanilla

Blend well and spread over top of cheese cake and return to oven for 10 more minutes.

Note from Everett, “I found it best when baking is completed to turn off oven, keep door open halfway, and let cake cake cool in oven. The cheesecake will not “sink” in the middle.”

Note from Kim, “This is the best cheesecake I have ever eaten!”
