Ashley……bow arrow: together in the kitchen

 And now me {I’m Amy, by the way, ha}

A while back I shared my mom’s cheesecake recipe {HERE} but I didn’t get a good picture of it or a good step by step. I volunteered to bring a cheesecake to my young mother’s church Christmas party last night and had grand ideas to do a step by step, but alas…I made the cheesecake in the middle of the night on Wednesday, which meant light was horrible and I was tired. Oh well. At least you get a finish product picture. *sigh*

Mumsy’s Cheesecake

Box of Honey Maid Graham Cracker Crumbs {or any other graham cracker crumb brand will work}

4 eggs beaten well {do not overbeat. I lightly beat them with a whisk in a separate bowl}
4 tea vanilla
1/2 tea lemon juice
4  8oz packages of cream cheese, at room temperature {very important, the cheese won’t mix}
1 1/2 C sugar

Sour Cream Topping:
2 C. sour cream
7 Tb sugar
2 tea vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Follow directions on the graham cracker crumb package. I usually double the recipe on the Honey Maid, since I like a very thick crust. With your fingers, mold the crumbs onto the bottom and the sides of a 9″ springform pan.

Mix cream cheese, sugar, beaten eggs, vanilla and lemon. Mix well until creamy and has very little lumps. Pour mixture into pan, stopping at one inch from top of pan {you might not use all the batter}. Bake for one hour. While cheesecake is baking, mix together the ingredients for sour cream topping. After the hour, remove cheesecake from oven, add the sour cream topping and cook for 10 more minutes.

Remove from oven, bring to room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 12 hours {I try to do a good 24 hrs}.

Ok, I absolutely CANNOT have this cheesecake without raspberry sauce. Cannot. My mom makes this amazing raspberry sauce with strained raspberries and cornstarch and you have to sit there and stir and stir. I, personally, never have the time for that, so when I found Ina’s recipe {HERE}, I about died and gone to Heaven. Easy peasy. I usually make some up and put it in a big bowl for everyone to use, or sometimes I dump it all over the top like Ina suggests. Either way, don’t eat this cheesecake without. You’ve been warned. ha.

And of course, my girl wakes up rigghhhtt when I’m about to pull the cheesecake from the fridge for pictures. I love this sweetie!

 And another view of the cheesecake. Just trust me when I say, you need to make this. Yup. It’s amazing.
