Cheesecake recipe?
« on: November 16, 2016, 09:11:27 AM »
I have made the egg free cheesecake from here before, but since egg is no longer an issue for DS I was thinking I'd make a real one.  Anyone have a tried and true recipe that they love?  Or a recommendation of a recipe site that has some to different flavors to choose from?

Or is the egg free one just as good and just make that?  It's been years since I made it.

Would also need to be gluten free for a guest coming for thanksgiving.

I make one from the Philadelphia cream cheese site.  I don't remember what it is called, but I always recognize it when I find it. It is the basic round springform pan one.  I know it takes four packs of cream cheese.

I do the one Hedgie does.  I think it is basically 1/4c sugar and 1 egg for each brick of cream cheese.  For gluten free, you could just use gf graham crackers, I presume. 

I have mixed in other ingedients to this basic recipe, like crushed oreos, and flavoring, such as Kalua, or Chambord.

Here, found it:

Like becca, I minx different things in.  To me a recipe is merely a starting point. I never use one just as written.

I find GF graham crackers are ummm, gross ;)  (Plus many are not safe for the other kids).

I use Annies GF Bunnies or Lucy's cookies and crush them to make my crust.

Good to know, I was thinking about using the kinnikinnik Oreo type cookies for the crust.  I emailed a friend this morning also and she sent me a recipe for a chocolate lace cheesecake which called for a chocolate crumb crust.

my favorite is Tyler Florence's Ultimate Cheesecake http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/tyler-florence/the-ultimate-cheesecake-recipe.html

the sour cream does something magical

Best way to tell if "done"  (((omg is it done? how much jiggle should be left? I'm not sure...is it done? no? yes?))) is an instant read thermometer reaching 150F in the middle :)

There's a mascarpone cheesecake recipe I used to have and I loved it --- might be Tyler's as well, maybe in his cookbook.

I love Smitten Kitchen's NY Cheesecake (with the subtle subtle citrus just really brightens it up)

I totally agree, btw-- the sour cream is magic.  This is a lot like my BFA, in-another-life recipe.  It always, always got RAVES.


I've even made it in a low-sugar version for my beta spouse and his family. 


Just wondering how it would play with pumpkin, though-- anyone have any thoughts on that one?


DD and her BF are making a cheesecake for T-giving, and have promised a pumpkin cheesecake-- I think that this recipe would work well with crushed hazelnuts in the crust (they are the only ones with FA's, so...)

Resistance isn't futile.  It's voltage divided by current.

This recipe rocks.  Bourbon Pumpkin Cheesecake (there's only 1 TB bourbon, and that can be reduced...it's still a bit strong at 1TB, just a bit of an overpowering note)

This is my friend's recipe that she sent me.  I made it, it was delicious.  DS didn't like the sour cream topping part.  I think I might make a more traditional recipe at Christmas.

I should note that we just subbed more cookie crumbs for the nuts in the crust.
