Use a 13x9x2
microwave safe dish
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.
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.
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
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.
