Dave’s Cheesecake Recipe
1 tsp Cinnamon
½ box crushed zwieback cookies (Dave buys these on Amazon but you can substitute good animal crackers instead)
2 tbls sugar
4 Tbls melted butter
Mix ingredients, press into bottom of 10” spring form pan.
1 ½ pounds cream cheese (3 8oz boxes)
1 ½ cups sugar
4 eggs yolk (save egg whites!)
4 Tbls cake flour
2 tsp vanilla
½ tsp salt
Beat well with electric mixer for 4 minutes
1 pint sour cream by folding it into the mixture.
Beat egg whites and fold into mixture.
Bake in over at 350 degrees for 1 hour, plus 10 or 15 minutes until top is brown.Open door of oven and cool for 1 ½ hours before removing from oven. If you want to make sure the cheesecake doesn't crack, you can put the springform pan into a water bath to cook, read more about that here. It tastes the same but looks prettier!
