Cheesecake Recipe

Just a few words about cheesecake...
ok, fine... a recipe.

You cannot go wrong with this,
and I defy you to not have an orgasm when you take a bite....

A spring form pan is a big plus... 8 inch
I mean... you really should have one, so go out a buy one.
It costs less than a beer so what's stopping you?

A good mixer is also a big plus... but you can do it with an electric hand mixer if that's all you've got...

Pam or butter the bottom of the spring form pan.

1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup of butter
1/4 cup (or less... it's up to you but use some...) of white sugar.

Melt the butter, pour it over the graham crumbs and add the sugar.
Go mental smushing it up with a fork and stir it up good.
Then dump it in the closed spring form and hand press it down firmly.
Pop it in the over, then turn the over on to 250. Don't preheat.
When the oven is up to speed... (the little light goes off...) the crust is done, so take it out.
When you're done the next part the crust will still be warm... this is a good thing.

1 package of phily cream cheese
1 small carton of whipping cream.
*(you can double both of these and continue... the cake just gets thicker)
3 tablespoons of icing sugar
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Cut up the cheese into small bits...
and put 'em in the mixing bowl.
Pour in a little of the whipping cream.
Now drape a dish towel over the mixer and the bowl because this bitch splatters when you start work'en it.
The "splatter stage" lasts about 15 seconds... then you're good... but without the dishtowel, you're looking at a few minutes of wiping the wall and changing your shirt...
Now add the icing sugar and vanilla and the rest of the whipping cream.
and Mix This big!! Like for about three minutes of solid mix mix mix mix...
It starts wet but gets thicker... believe me.

Pour this over the crust... actually there will be some scooping involved... ;)
And you'll see it get wet against the crust because it's (the crust) still warm...
This is a good thing... that wet zone becomes the glue between the fluff and the crust. :D
Get into it in the spreading and go for smooth flat top.

Pop it in the fridge and give it at least an hour to set.
Serve with any thing you want on it... cut up strawberries, blueberries, hell, you can pour kaluha over it... :D

Put a towel on the chair before you sit down to eat...
