Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Classic, simple, sweet... delicious! What an easy way to prepare a no-fail dessert. The crust is very different from your traditional graham cracker, but I have to say that it was a unanimous hit among the Kitchen Crew. The wonderful flavors of the cheesecake are allowed to shine through in this recipe and, honestly, I couldn't ask for much more!

Ingredients

CRUST INGREDIENTS:
1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1 tsp
baking powder
1/4 c
sugar
1 stick
butter, melted
1
egg, slightly beaten
CHEESECAKE BODY INGREDIENTS:
16 oz
cream cheese, softened
1 Tbsp
flour
2
eggs
1 c
sugar
1 1/4 c
milk
fruit or cinnamon for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 10" springform pan with PAM. WRAP the bottom and up the sides of the outside of the pan with a square of aluminum foil, to protect against any leaks. Make sure your springform pan is properly aligned and that it tightly seals when you snap the ring shut!
NOTE: if you want to use a 9" springform pan to get a thicker piece of cake, you will have to bake the cake at least 10 minutes longer. Watch it closely, and use a cake tester to test for done-ness.
2
For crust: Sift together flour, baking powder and sugar. Mix together with butter and 1 slightly-beaten egg. Press the mixture along the bottom and slightly up the sides of the prepared pan.
3
For cheesecake: Place the cream cheese, flour, 2 eggs, sugar and milk into a blender and process on high for 3 minutes. No, there is no vanilla in this recipe! Really & truly!
Pour into the prepared crust. Bake for 55 - 60 minutes (longer, if you use a 9" springform pan). Cool and remove from springform. Serve with fruit topping, if desired.
