I usually make a cheesecake with the same ingredients but I also add 1 cup of plain milk to the mix.

I'd like to submit an old favorite that's similar to PF's. It's just irresistible and tough for a single cook to have around without pigging out.

Mary Zinkovich's Cheesecake

Crust: 3 Tbsp. softened butter to one pack of graham crackers, crushed.

Cream: 3 - 8 oz. packages cream cheese (room temp.)
5 eggs - one at a time
1-1/3 cup sugar
1-1/2 Tsp. vanilla

Mix by hand with a wooden spoon. Pour into a 9 x 13 pan, on top of cracker crumb mixture.

Bake 40 min. at 325 degrees.

Whisk 1 pint sour cream with 4 Tbsp. sugar and 1-1/2 Tbsp. vanilla.

Pour on top and bake at 475 deg. for just a minute.

Chill.

I've never used a mixer to make this recipe, but I'm sure it would be fine. I've had the recipe for 40 years or so. I only make it occasionally, for a Christmas treat. I hope the Honey Grahams still come in those separate packs.

Wow, this is a very different recipe! I'm very interested in the different layers. Is this a firmer or creamier cheesecake?

Hmmm. Texture is pretty subjective -- I'd call it creamy, but it is still firm enough to cut into squares for serving. It all depends on your idea of creamy. It's not like what I think of as New York style, which IMO is of a drier consistency.

My, what a helpful answer that is.
