I make cheesecakes all the time but when I tried one special flavoring a few weeks ago I can't seem to keep them in my house anymore. My family devours them when I blink now.

Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

  • 1 pkg
    graham crackers (they come 3 to a box)
  • 1/2 stick
    oleo (melted)
  • 2 Tbsp
    granulated sugar
  • 2 pkg
    ( 8 oz. each) cream cheese
  • 3
    eggs

How to Make Butternut Cheesecake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Grind or crush graham crackers. Add oleo and 2 tablespoons sugar to crackers. Mix and spread into pie dish/tin making sure to tamp down to form crust. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add cream cheese and 2/3 cups sugar. Cream together well. Add eggs all at one time, mixing only enough to blend. Do not overmix as you want air to stay in the batter to make this light and fluffy. Mix in flavoring. Pour batter into pie tin and smooth out.
  4. Place pie in oven for about 50 minutes. Test for doneness by gently pressing finger in middle of pie, if it springs back up it's done.
  5. *note* do not use the toothpick method with this as sometimes the toothpick does not come out completely clean but extra time in the oven will burn it.
  6. Chill before serving.
