Recipe thread!

This may go over like a lead balloon, but thought I'd try anyhow ...

Write down your favorite recipes here. That way, if you don't know what to make for dinner one night, you can come here and look and see if anything appeals.

NY Cheesecake

6 packages of cream cheese
3 cups of sugar
500 ml tub of sour cream
2 tablespoons of vanilla
6 eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 cups of graham wafer crumbs
1 cup of butter

Mix cream cheese and 2 cups sugar until thoroughly blended. Add eggs, one at a time, blending in. Add tub of sour cream. Add baking powder, vanilla ... blend until completely mixed ... should be a fairly loose mixture.

In spring-form pans (two), put 2 cups graham wafer crumbs in bottom of each pan ... add 1/2 cup to a cup of sugar and mix with crumbs. Nuke 1/2 cup of butter per pan and mix in with sugar graham wafer crumbs ... pat down crumb-congealed mixture until firm at bottom. Put in over at 400 degrees for 10 minutes to set.

Pour cheesecake mixture on top of crumb crust until it's about 3/4 way up the pan. Pour second pan.

Bake cheesecake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes. THEN reduce heat to 375 and cook until top is browned (about two hours).

Take cheesecake out and let cool. Best if refridgerated overnight.

(You make two cheesecakes so you can test one before you serve it! hehe!)

For a change, after you pour the batter into the pan, mix kahlua and chocolate syrup in a cup. Pour into batter and take a fork or knife run through gently, to marbelize.

This is THE best cheesecake and it rises quite high.

Garnish with either cherry, blueberry, rasperry, or any other kind of pie filling as topping. Or chop up strawberries and layer on top.
