I utterly failed at making a cheesecake last night. And this is the most simple incarnation of a cheesecake out there. Simple, but delicious, you'd like to think it's impossible to mess up. But I found a way. It was more of a cheesecake custard, despite being baked for 40 minutes. I am still at a loss to explain how I messed it up- I've even made it before! I guess there are worse things than having an excuse to make another cheesecake.
New York Style Cheesecake
Graham Cracker Crust:
Crush 1 package of graham crackers. Mix with 1/2 stick of melted butter and sugar to taste. Press into pie dish.
2 8oz. pkgs cream cheese
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix ingredients together and bake at 350 for 25 min or until set & golden brown on top.
I realize there are lots of ways to make cheesecake, but does any one see anything inherently wrong with this recipe? I've made it before and it worked great!
