Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Cream cheese — Make sure it is softened to room temperature before using to ensure a smooth and creamy texture.
  • Graham cracker crumbs — You can use store-bought crumbs or make your own by crushing graham crackers in a food processor or by placing them in a plastic bag and crushing them with a rolling pin.
  • Heavy cream — Use full-fat heavy cream for the best results.
  • Eggs — Make sure they are at room temperature before using to ensure even mixing.
  • Vanilla extract — Use pure vanilla extract for the best flavor.

Tips & Tricks

  • To prevent cracks from forming on the surface of the cheesecake, make sure all ingredients are at room temperature before mixing and avoid overmixing.
  • To make a chocolate crust, substitute the graham cracker crumbs with chocolate cookie crumbs.
  • To make a fruit topping, mix together fresh or frozen berries with sugar and cook over medium heat until the mixture thickens. Let cool before pouring over the cheesecake.
