Search Bread + Butter

Nothing beats a good cheesecake. This is what I decided to make this year the finale of the Thanksgiving meal. I told you I made sure that I wasn't going to spend too much time in the kitchen. I felt like relaxing this year and I made sure of that. Besides, cooking a meal that could serve 10 people when only 2 will be eat didn't seem to make much sense. But I ma happy with the way these turned out. I made on full pie with two mini cheesecakes with a cheerio crust.

I had realized that I made more filling than I had anticipated and need to find some way to use it all up. Luckily, honey nut cheerios can be a nice substitute to the graham cracker. Still has the nice sweet crust crunch. You should try it. I think I'll make myself a new batch this weekend.

Makes 2 full  or 4 mini cheesecakes


2 Pre-Made Graham Cracker Pie Crust (See below for homemade crust)
24 oz cream cheese
12 Tbsp condensed milk
3 eggs
3 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat your oven 350˚F

Combine the cream cheese and vanilla extract. Eat in each egg, one at a time. Then add in the  condensed milk. Mix thoroughly.

Take your pie crusts and divide the mixture evenly. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes. The center should be slightly loose.

Let it cool completely then place in the fridge for at least an hour. This may be done in advance.

Homemade Graham Cracker or Cheerio Crust

4 c Honey Nut Cheerios or 1 box Graham Crackers
1/2 c melter unsalted butter
Pie tins

Preheat your oven to 350˚F.

Crush the cheerios or graham crackers until almost a powder consistency. It is fine if there is still little pebble pieces in tact. You may use a food processor for this.

Place the now crushed cheerios or graham cracker in a bowl and mix in the melted butter. Combine thoroughly until clumpy. Divide the mixture into two pie tins and mold into crust shape and bake for 15 minutes.

When done, remove from the oven and let it fully cool before adding your cheesecake mixture.

They sound delicious using the condensed milk. Never tried that before in a cheesecake.

This is the 2nd recipe I've seen recently with condensed milk. I wonder if that's what gives you such as beautiful filling at the end - no cracks! Looks great!
