We have a special treat to add to your table this holiday. It's called Christmas Cheesecake. Gretel-Ann Fischer is the owner of Cupp's café in Winooski, as well as a contestant on the TLC's Next Great Baker. Today she's brought what looked like cheesecake galore.
32 ounces of cream cheese, softened
1 ¼ cup of sugar
3 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 ¼ cup of graham cracker crumbs
¼ cup butter, melted
For the crust, in a medium bowl combine graham cracker crumbs and butter. Press into the bottom of a round spring form pan and freeze.
For the filling, beat softened cream cheese and sugar on medium high for three minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in lemon juice and vanilla. Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes. Let cool to room temperature, and then chill in the refrigerator for 4 hours before serving.
Suggestions for dressing up your cheesecake for the holidays: sugared cranberries, raspberry coulis, and/or chocolate shavings/curls.
