Isn’t it beautiful?  She is sooooooo awesome!  With the help of her grandmother, Little Miss D gathered up her best cherries and cream cheese filling to sit on top of her graham cracker crust.  Oh, so delicious!

Here’s a recipe to try.  Note my niece has a thicker topping.  No juice, more sugar and added cornstarch.

RECIPE:

(Crust)

2 cps          graham cracker crumbs

1/2 cp         melted butter

2 tbs           sugar

(Filing)

4                  (8 oz) packages of softened cream cheese

1 3/4 cps    sugar

7                   eggs

3                   (8 oz) sour cream

1 tbs            vanilla extract

(Topping)

3 cps           fresh blue berries or cherries

1/3 cp          sugar

1 tsp            lemon juice

 

  • Turn oven to 300 degrees
  • Stir curst ingredients together pressing firmly onto bottom and sides of a lightly greased springform pan.  Chill.
  • Beat cream cheese until fluffy gradually adding 1 3/4 sugar.
  • Add eggs one at a time (don’t over beat).
  • Continue to add sour cream and vanilla at a low speed until nice and smooth.
  • Pour mixture into pan with graham crust and bake for 1 hour and 25 minuets.
