Valentine’s Cheesecake

Measure for love; A Valentines day post

As much as I dread commercialized “holidays”, I still love showing people how much I care by doing something that is time consuming instead of just making a purchase and covering it with pretty wrapping paper.

This year, I decided to treat the boy I dear, with my cheesecake specialty as one of my special treats.

In my opinion, taking the time to make something shows more effort and care   (especially if its food )

Scroll down to indulge into my simple cheesecake recipe.

Final result: Fresh out of the oven

Prep time : 10 minute(s)
Ready in :5 hour(s)  30 minute(s)

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cups HONEY MAID Graham Crumbs
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3 pkg. (250 g each) PHILADELPHIA Brick Cream Cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 eggs

Instructions

  • Heat oven up to 350°
  • Mix crumbs and butter; press onto bottom of 9-inch springform pan as crust
  • Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with mixer until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Pour over crust.
  • Bake 40 to 50 min. or until centre is almost set. Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim. Refrigerate cheesecake 4 hours.

 

Tips :

  • You can use whatever you prefer as for the base such as oreo for example.
  • Also, use your imagination, by making a fruity topping to put on top of the cheesecake. Simply put frozen fruits in a pan with a bit of water and sugar and let it become as a syrup. Add this on top before refrigerating.
