Mom was busy today making cheesecake for us.. She made a butter crust.
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
Press this into the pan.. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes and let cool.
New York Cheesecake


2 cups sour cream
1 lb. ricotta cheese
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cup sugar
16 oz. cream cheese
3 Tbsp. flour
3 extra large eggs
1 Tbsp. vanilla
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 Tbsp. lemon juice


1. Combine sour cream and ricotta cheese in a large mixing bowl. Beating at low speed, add butter, sugar and cream cheese.

2. Increase speed to medium and add flour, eggs, vanilla, cornstarch, and lemon juice. Beat for 5 minutes.

3. Pour into springform pan.

4. Bake in preheated 350F oven for 1 hour, then turn off oven and leave in closed oven for one hour longer. Cool on rack.

The finish product didn't turn out as good as mom would have hoped. It cracked on her but the flavor is great. She has been looking to see what might have went wrong any input would greatly be appreciated...

Yum! At least you weren't entering the cheesecake in a beauty contest but I bet it would've won in a taste contest!

I have no suggestions on what to do differently next time seeing as I've never made a cheesecake in my life!

We agree with everyone else, who cares how it looks, as long as it tastes great - and that looks very yummy. Toss some fresh fruit on top and you are good to go. Thanks for sharing.

We've heard mom talk about baking it in a water bath at a gentle temp -- like 325. And grease the pan.
Hope that helps.
Speaking of helping, did you guys get to try it?
Play bows,

I am sure it was delicious!
My grandma agrees with Zim's advice and she also says that maybe a little less mix would help too. All the cheesecakes get inflated and then deflated when they get cold and its at that time that the cracks appear. If the mix is contained in the pan, the cracks will be smaller.
I hope that helps.
Kisses and hugs

mmm... Mom says she would love to eat it all up and the cracks don't matter at all. I would like to eat it up too 'cause I like to eat anything I can get hold of.

Mom said this site might have some answers.

Licks and sniffs,
