This one is sinful, and a family favorite.
Add your favorite flavoring * amaretto, baileys,almond extract, what have you*
It has won the heart of even the toughest critics around here and I am constantly asked for the recipe Or to make one for special occasions.
I always make mine in a 9 " round springform pan.
DogueLover`s Easy "Killer Cheesecake"
1 cup graham wafer crumbs
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup melted margarine
Mix and press into a 9 " springform pan
1 envellope Knox unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup water.
Heat to dissolve gelatin and keep warm
Beat 1 8 oz pkg cream cheese with 1/2 cup white sugar
In another bowl combine 3/4 cup whipping cream and 1/4 cup lemon juice
In gradual increments add gelatin and cream/lemon juice mixture to cream cheese mixture. Beat well. Add favorite flavoring ( 1 tbsp will do).
( add vanilla, almond, bailey`s irish cream, amaretto etc)
Place in fridge to thicken.
In another bowl beat 1 cup whipping cream ( or use nutriwhip).
Once cream cheese mixture has thickened add it to whipped cream and fold together.
Pour over crust and refridgerate until firm.
Decorate with fresh fruit, or sliced almonds ( really good with amaretto flavor) or shaved chocolate.
This is very good.
