I Maked a cheeez cake!
Wanted a dessert tonite and had all the stuff for a cheese cake, after looking at a bunch of recipes I realized that I would make it today but can't eat it till tomorrow after it chills out! Bummer, but I was commited. I'm a little fuzzy on the ingredients because I combined alot of different recipes, so this is what I did.
Store bought graham cracker pie crust
1 cup sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk
1 cup sour cream
2 TBSP flour
2 8 oz packs of creme cheese
Put all of the above in a blender untill smooth, pour into pie crust. Into a 325 oven for 1 hour, shut oven leave door open for 30 minutes and take out.
I gotta say this booger rose like 5 inches over the top of the crust!! But then it shrunk. I will let you know how it tastes tomorrow!:smile-new:
It cracked because of your temperature variance. I'm a pro at cheesecake. First of all, the house should be extremely quiet while baking the cheesecake. Secondly, do not open the oven door AT ALL during the cooking time AND after it's done. I usually turn off the oven 15 minutes before the end time of any given recipe. Then leave the cheesecake in the oven for 3-4 hours. Then let it cool on top of the stove for another 4-6 hours. THEN, refrigerate it. You will never have a cracked cheesecake if you do this.
Of course, you can always cover it with blueberry or cherry sauce.:evil-grin:
If this don't work out I will go to the cheese cake factory and buy one!!!!
Not a bad first try !!! I had 2 slices! I topped it off with some blackberries in syrup, very good!!!

Maybe I could make a smoked cheesecake with bacon?
You really gave me a great idea with the pre-made graham cracker crusts. I make my cheesecakes in the usual spring form pan. That is so much easier.
I wish i had the spring pan! you can make it taller!
