Cheese cake tips:
Make sure the cream cheese is softened and creams completely with butter and sugar.
Bake within 5 minutes of the recipe time. Cheese cakes to not "set" in the oven. Over baking is a common mistake.
Leave in turned off oven for an hour after baking.
When cool, wrap up and put in fridge. Cheese cake needs to set for 12 hours or so.
I will post my basic cheese cake recipe again:
18 graham crackers rolled to crumbs(1½ C any cookie) (35-40 nilla wafers)
¼ C sugar
5 tbs melted butter or Margarine
2(8oz) Cream Cheese
½ C sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 375 F. Mix crust ingredients and pat firmly into bottom an 1/3 of the way up the sides of a 9” spring form pan. Beat Cream cheese and sugar with a rotary beater or electric mixer until creamed. Add eggs, vanilla and salt and continue beating until satiny. Pour into crust. Bake 25 min. Cool in pan in oven with door ajar for half an hour to an hour. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature, and then cover with foil/plastic wrap and chill 10-12 hours before serving. Cut into slim wedges.
