Description

I used a water bath to bake this cheesecake.


Ingredients

Crust

  • 1.5 cup graham crackers, crushed (I think honey graham crackers taste the best)
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Cheesecake Filling

  • 16 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream, room temperature
  • 1 cup sour cream, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 320 degrees and line the bottom of a 9″ spring-form pan with parchment paper.

Crust

  1. Combine the ingredients in a small mixing bowl and stir together with a fork until all of the crumbs are coated evenly.
  2. Press the mixture onto the bottom of the spring-form pan making sure that the crumbs are compact.
  3. Place in the refrigerator until the cheesecake filling is ready.

Cheesecake Filling

  1. Using a stand mixer or electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and sugar together on low speed until there are no lumps and the cream cheese is smooth.
  2. Scrap the sides of the bowl as needed.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients one at a time, beating on low speed until each one is fully incorporated before adding the next.
  4. Scrap the sides of the bowl between each addition.
  5. Pour the filling into the pan and gently tap it down on a hard surface to help remove any air bubbles.
  6. Prepare water bath (optional)
  7. Bake in the oven for 1 hour.
  8. Turn the oven off, crack the door and let it cool down for 1 hour.
  9. Remove the cheesecake from the oven and run a sharp knife around the inside rim of the pan to release the cheesecake from the sides. (This will help prevent cracking as it cools)
  10. Let the cheesecake sit on the counter until it’s completely cooled.
  11. Place in the refrigerator overnight to set up.
  12. When you are ready to serve, remove the spring-form pan and let sit out for 30 minutes before serving.
