Oh I don't know. You might right off and turn a profit with your new "family" secret recipe that was handed down from the dawn of time.

Kinda simple:

Crust

1 1/2C Graham cracker cumbs.
1/3C packed light brown sugar
1/2TPS Siagon Cinnamon
1/3C Melted butter.

Combine it all, mix well and put in the bottom of a 9 inch spring form pan. Chill while making the filling.


Filling

1.5# Cream Cheese softened
1TBSish fresh lemon juice
1P heavy whipping cream
1/2C Sugar
1Tps Vanilla Extract (the real stuff)

Put cream cheese and lemon juice in a bowl and beat with the hand mixer for a bit to get it moving,

Add about 3/4 of the cream and beat. If it is too stiff then add more but I would not go over the pint.

Add sugar and vanilla and mix.

You should have to scoop it from the bowl to the pan. If it pours slowly you might not be happy, if it pours easily you will not be happy.

I leave this to chill in the refrigerator for several hours. Typically I make this late the night before and have it after dinner, but it only really needs about 5 hours or so. If it is loose it will not stay in place when you remove the pan, it becomes bowl cheesecake at that point.


Topping
8oz sour Cream
1TBS sugar.

Once the cheese cake is out of the pan mix this and spread a layer on top. You can make it thicker or thinner subject to taste.

I did add some canned bing cherries (not a pie filling) to the top. I also put about a TBS of the cherry syrup in the topping. It really only effected the color (kinda made it pink)


There you have it. Enjoy and if anyone asks for the recipe just tell em some guy on the Internet gave it to ya.

This interesting. Made me think of two things. Maybe I should start new thread.

The first thing was this one person who made the best cookies I ever tasted, but when I asked her for recipe she would not give it to me period. I've tried and tried and tried but to no avail. And she is actually not the only one like that. I bet there are a lot of people like that. Me I love give out my recipes, the only problem I do not always have one writen down.

The second thing was cooking good food with good ingedients. I think i willl start new thread about that.

I have had people be very reluctant or flat out refuse to give me a recipe. Like I said I understand a trade secret (I wouldn't ask for the bagel recipe at the bagel place) but if you make a great pie there shouldn't need to be any mystery. When I told the lady at the bagel place how to make the cheesecake she said "that's it?" with a surprised look on her face. Yep.. that's it. It doesn't have to be alchemy to be good.

I made this cheesecake again tonight and used fresh orange juice instead of the fresh lemon juice. Ok that was a brilliant move, very nice indeed.

The acid helps set up the cream cheese... but some some berry on top would sure be a nice ticket.

Frankz: Thanks for the nice recipe, someday soon will try it, love cheesecake an this one sounds delicious!!
And, yes, there are people very reluctant to give "their" recipes, and give them with the wrong measures or missing some ingredients.....

Back in high school a girl I was dating and I had a spaghetti sauce cook off.
Hers was better, I had to admit! (not just because I was dating her, either!)
She absolutely refused to give me the recipe, no matter how much I begged or schemed.

Fast forward to 25 years later, and we have re-connected on Facebook.
She STILL won't give me the recipe!!!!!

I don't understand anyone refusing to give a recipe. It's a stingy way to be..And when they leave out an ingredient or tell you something wrong, it makes me wonder how their other dealings in life are.
.When someone asks me it makes me feel special..I gladly give the recipe.
