Homemade Cheesecake Recipe

Happy Valentine's Day! How is everyone celebrating today? Dave and I are picking a recipe we've never tried before and having a nice night at home, cooking together. For those of you that will be doing something similar, or want something sweet to come home to, here's the homemade cheesecake recipe I promised...

I went off of this recipe and made it my own. So here's my version...

What you'll need~

2 cups crumbled graham crackers
6 tbsp unsalted butter
4 tbsp cane sugar

3 8oz packages of cream cheese (I used Horizon organic)
1 cup cane sugar
3 tbsp whole wheat flour
1 tsp vanilla
3 eggs (I used egg whites)

Preheat oven to 350. Combine all of the crust ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix until well combined and sticking together. Push crust into the bottom (and a bit of the sides) of a pie pan. Bake crust for 10 minutes. When finished, set aside and set oven to 425.

While crust is cooking beat the cream cheese in a large bowl with a mixer until it starts to get smooth. Add sugar, flour, juice of the lemon, and vanilla and mix again until smooth. Slowly add the eggs while mixing. *just a tip on the mixing of all the filling, if you put your bowl on the warm stove as the crust is cooking it will help the cheesecake get a bit softer, making it easier to mix

Pour the filling over the crust. Bake at 425 for 10 minutes. Then bake at 250 for about 40-45 minutes. Let cool at room temperature and then place in the fridge.
