Author: Naomi Andres
9-inch sprigform pan (if not non-stick, grease before filling)
measuring cups & spoons
electric handheld mixer
For the Crust:
1 ½cupsgraham cracker crumbs
⅓cupsalted butter, melted
For the Cheesecake Batter:
24ouncescream cheese, room temperature
½cupgranulated white sugar
2wholeeggs, room temperature
Preheat the oven to 375℉. Stir together the graham cracker crumbs, powdered sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter in a small bowl. Pour into a 9-inch springform pan (greased if not non-stick) and press into the pan to form a crust. Refrigerate while you make the batter.
In a large bowl with an electric handheld mixer on low speed, mix the cream cheese and sugar just to combine. Add the eggs and pinch of salt and continue mixing just until the eggs are completely incorporated, trying not to beat too much air into the batter. Pour into the pan on top of the prepared crust and smooth the top as best as you can.
Bake for 18-22 minutes or until the edges are just starting to turn golden brown and the internal temperature in the center of the cheesecake is at least 150℉ (about 65℃). Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan on a wire rack to room temperature before refrigerating for at least 12 hours before serving. Serve with whipped cream and fresh berries or whatever you'd like! Enjoy!
Cheesecake will stay fresh for up to 6 days if stored covered in the refrigerator.
