On Shavuot, we have the custom to eat dairy, so many bake cheesecake as a delicious dairy treat for the holiday. Try this recipe for the most delicious cheesecake!
1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
3 Tbsp. sugar
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
4 pkg. (8 oz. each) Cream Cheese softened
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Heat oven to 325°F.
Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter; press onto the bottom of a 9-inch pan.
Beat cream cheese, add 1 cup sugar and vanilla into a mixer until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Pour over the crust.
Bake for 55 min or until the center is almost set. Run a knife around the rim of the pan to loosen the cake; cool before removing the rim. Refrigerate cheesecake for 4 hours before serving.
Top chilled cheesecake with fresh fruit just before serving, and enjoy!
