If you're new to the world of making cheesecake, it's a good idea to start with the basics. This recipe delivers an easy intro for making a sweet and creamy cheesecake.

Ingredients

1
cup graham cracker crumbs
4
tbsp. butter
1/2
tsp cinnamon
1/2
tsp ground nutmeg
1 1/4
cup sugar
4
eggs, separated
1
cup sour cream
2
tbsp flour
1/4
tsp salt
1
tsp vanilla
1
lb. cream cheese (or Neufchâtel cheese), room temperature

Directions

  • 1 To make the graham cracker crust, melt the butter in the microwave or over stovetop. Mix the crumbs, melted butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and 1/4 cup sugar in a bowl.
  • 2 Butter the pan and then press the crumb mixture over the bottom and slightly up the sides. Chill in the fridge. Preheat the oven to 325°F while you assemble the rest of the mixture.
  • 3 Beat egg yolks with an electric mixture. Add sour cream, flour, salt 3/4 cup sugar and vanilla and blend well. Add the softened cream cheese (or Neufchâtel) and mix until smooth.
  • 4 Next beat the egg whites until foamy. Gradually mix 1/4 cup sugar into the whites. Keep going until the whites become stiff and shiny. Gently fold into the cream cheese mixture and spoon into the crust.
  • 5 Bake about 1 hour. To test for doneness, gently shake the cake. If the top jiggles, it needs a little more time.
  • 6 Remove from oven and cool. Chill overnight before serving. Add fresh fruit or a swirl of melted chocolate to the top for a delicious finish!
