  • What kind do you want to make? Plain or flavored? Plain one would need some kind of topping to go with it, or at least that is the way I like it.

    2 eggs
    2 Tbsp. sugar
    1 cup sour cream
    1/2 tsp. vanilla
    1. Combine graham cracker crumbs and butter, press into buttered 8 inch pie plate to form crust on bottom and sides.

    2. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually add in lemon juice, 1/2 cup sugar, milk, salt and vanilla.

    3. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing well after each addition. Pour filling into crust.

  • Do you have a spring form pan? I find those a must. You can purchase one at walmart You need parchment paper too. I take the parchment paper and place it in the bottom of the spring form then close the sides around it so the paper is lining the bottom. grease the whole thing and put my crust on-top of that.
    I have this cook book call ed the joy of Cheese cake I love it. It has loads of recipes for crusts cheesecakes and toppings. I could copy one for you. HOwever I need to know what type of cheese cake your lookiing to make. I understand it is a baked one. What do you want it to taste like. Dry, creamy, tart? Are you talking about a ny tall cheese cake or a short hard one?
    Another thing to think about is the crust--I prefer a gram cracker one. Some people like short bread. The one thing I really love about cheese cake is it is so adaptable. Read up on water baths too. I always use a water bath.
