This recipe was given to me by my Mexican "mom" Redi, the mother of an exchange student I went to school with. Ninive, the exchange student, and I became great friends while she was here in the US and I have been to Mexico several times to visit her family.
I loved the texture of Pay de Queso and requested it on every trip to Mexico. Redi happily obliged and gave me a copy of her family's recipe.
Ingredients For pay de queso (mexican "cheesecake")

How To Make pay de queso (mexican "cheesecake")
Preheat oven to 350*.
Mix together the cracker crumbs and butter. Press mixture onto bottom and up sides of a 9" pie plate. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Beat together the remaining ingredients. Beat on med-high for about 1 minute. Pour into prepared crust.
Bake 40-45 minutes, until the middle is almost set and jiggles slightly. Refrigerate 3 hours before serving.
Serve plain, with fruit, or cajeta.
