Classic Cheesecake

Classic Cheesecake

Cheesecake is one of the most popular desserts around, and for good reason. It is rich and satisfying in a way no other dessert can be. I make a lot of different cheesecake recipes, and this is one of my favorites. Simple to make, with all the creamy denseness you expect in a classic cheesecake. You can leave it plain to serve, or top with sour cream, as suggested in the directions, or top with fruit, preserves, shaved chocolate. Well, you get the idea. Have fun, get creative.


If you get cracks in your cheesecakes, try buttering the pan before baking. It will help to prevent the cheesecake from sticking to the pan, reducing cracks. Also, don’t over mix the eggs. Just stir them in.

    Classic Cheesecake

1/3 c. butter

1 ¼ c. graham cracker crumbs

¼ c. sugar

2 (8oz.) packages cream cheese, softened

1 (14oz.) can sweetened condensed milk

3 eggs

¼ c. lemon juice

8 oz. sour cream

Preheat oven to 300-degrees. Combine butter, crumbs and sugar and press firmly into the bottom of a lightly buttered 9-inch springform pan. In a large mixing bowl beat cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in milk. Stir in eggs and juice and mix well. Pour into prepared crust and bake 50-55 minutes or until set. Cool completely then spread sour cream over the top. You can omit the sour cream, or add different toppings.
