Ultimate cheesecake

This recipe is the original creation of a co-worker, Don Chaney. I consider myself a cheesecake gourmet, and I rate this recipe as 8.5 out of 10 (However, there are no 10's). The recipe is so simple, I almost feel guilty serving it.

  1. Preheat oven to 190C
  2. Mix crust ingredients. Press into springform pan on bottom and sides.
  3. Mix filling ingredients and pour into pan. Make sure all ingredients are room temperature.

  6. Remove from oven, cool to room temperature, and chill overnight. Serve cold.


Variations: Crush some walnuts into the crust. Pour a can of cherry or blueberry pie filling over the chilled cake, then chill again. Put 30-50 ml of your favorite liqueur into the cake filling.


Difficulty: easy to moderate.
Time: 10 minutes preparation, 40 minutes baking, overnight cooling.
Precision: measure the ingredients.
