Honey has been asking for some cheesecake for quite a while. I know I have a huge blog of cream cheese in the fridge but I just don't have the mood to cook it. Honey thought I could just whip it up and no baking involved. But it is not the case here. There are cheesecakes that require no baking and I will need to use gelatin. Gelatin is not what I have in my pantry today.

This cheesecake is called for 325 degree F in the oven for 45- 50 minutes.


24 oz Philadelphia cream cheese
4 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 ready to use graham cracker crust.
Bring everything at room temperature.
With electric mixer, beat cream cheese with sugar.
Add butter and beat smooth.
Add 1 egg at a time and beat.
Add vanilla extract and beat smooth.
Preheat the oven to 350 degree F.
Pour batter into the graham cracker crust.
Lay the cheesecake on a tray fill with water.
Bake in the oven at 350 degree F for 40 minutes.
Lower the temperature to 300 and bake for another 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and cool it at room tempearture before cooling it further in the fridge for 4 hours before serving.

This cheesecake is very smooth and velvety soft. There is no cracks on the surface.
Honey is happy that he finally gets his cheesecake for dessert.
