MICROWAVE CHEESECAKE
Contributed by Emily McLean


Use a 13x9x2 microwave safe dish

CRUST:
Combine 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup sugar          1/2 cup butter        1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Mix well and pat firmly on bottom of pan.  Cook on high for 2 minutes.

FILLING:

1-1/2 lbs. Cream cheese                 1 cup sugar
5 eggs                    1/2 tsp. vanilla
Beat cream cheese till smooth.  Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each
till well blended.  Add sugar & vanilla and beat well.  Pour into crust & bake
in micro on High for 15 minutes (Turn every 4 minutes to ensure even
baking).  In the meantime make topping.

TOPPING:

5 cups sour cream      3 tsp. vanilla        2/3 cups sugar
Combine sour cream, sugar & vanilla, blending well. Pour mixture over cheese
cake & micro 1 minute 30 seconds. Remove and chill. The cake will look lumpy
but it smooths out when in the fridge.  If not then taste won't be affected
at all.

Before serving I top with canned blueberry pie filling OR cherry pie filling
OR I make my own by slicing (very thin) kiwi, strawberries, blueberries,
peaches or nectarines etc. If you make 2 like I usually do for a party then
you can make party colors.   Fourth of July...1 cherry pie filling and 1
blueberry pie filling.
