Best Cheesecake Ever

Brandon's First Cheesecake

 

I nearly fell off my chair last week when the hubby declared he was making a cheesecake.  I can count the times on one hand that my sweet hubby has cooked something and those have mostly been frozen pizza.  🙂  He proceeded to dig around in the kitchen for a while and the result.  Absolutely fantastic!  A+ Brandon I’m so proud.  🙂 

 

Impressive don't you think?

 
World’s Best Cheesecake (Ann Foutch style):
You will need an 8 or 9″ Springform pan to make this.  Preheat oven to 350. 
Take 1 pack of Graham Crackers (about 8 or 9) and crush them.  Place in pan.  Sprinkle 2 T of sugar on top.  Melt 1/4 c. butter and pour over top of crumbs to make a crust. 
 
Filling:
In a bowl combine: 3 packs of softened cream cheese (you could also sub in some neufchatel cheese for some of the cream cheese), 2 eggs, 1 stick of butter (it needs to be the real stuff) softened, 1 c. sugar and 2 t. vanilla.  Beat well until smooth. 
Pour over top of crust.  Bake 1 hour until a knife inserted comes out clean. 

This recipe happens to be passed down from my wonderful Mom.  It has been made for dozens and dozens of years.  Served at everything from wedding receptions to the Wool Fest.  Enjoy!

 

Brandon was camera-shy the night he made the cheesecake but I did snap this adorable photo the next day. Priceless. This was Eli's first attempt at dressing like Daddy.
