Baking With MsMoore : Strawberry Cheesecake 

Hey Luvs!

One of mine and my mans favourite desserts is cheesecake, and we usually grab one from the grocery store, but the other day he asked me if I could make a homemade one. I was a bit nervous, since baking is a whole other skill than cooking lol, but yesterday I decided to give it a try! I used a pre made pie crust, but next time I’m gonna make the crust myself. 

Proud to say he really liked it, even went back for seconds ! 

Ingredients:

  • 3 (8oz) packages of strawberry cream cheese, at room temperature *you can use regular cream cheese I just chose to use strawberry 
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature 
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, at room temperature 
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice 
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract 
  • 1 1/4 cups sour cream, at room temperature 
  • 3 Tbsp sugar 
  • Strawberries (or whatever berries you want to use)

  

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Farenheit
  2. Mix cream cheese for about 2 minutes in large bowl or electric mixer. Make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl
  3. Add 1 cup of sugar, and mix until light and fluffy (about 2 mins)
  4. Add eggs, one at a time, mix after each
  5. Add the 1/2 cup of sour cream, lemon juice and vanilla
  6. Mix until well blended   
  7. Pour filling into crust, spread evenly   
  8. Lift pan and tap it onto the counter a few times to release any bubbles in the batter 
  9. Bake for 1 hour or until the top is set. Use a toothpick, if it comes out clean, the cake is done
  10. While the cheesecake is baking, combine the 1 1/4 cup sour cream and 3 tablespoons sugar
  11. Spread mixture over cheesecake immediately after removing it from the oven 
  12. Return cake to oven for 5 mins to set 
  13. Cool completely, then cover with aluminum foil and freeze overnight 
  14. Take cheesecake out of freezer. After an hour top with berries, and serve or place in fridge until ready to serve.
