This week Anne of Anne Strawberry chose the Tall and Creamy Cheesecake. I actually made this back in October for the Stewardship Dinner at my church where I made the desserts. I wanted a simple cheesecake, and this delivered. This was a great basic cheesecake and it would be so easy to adapt to your tastes. You could add a sauce to it (raspberry sauce or chocolate sauce would be delicious), or even add some Oreos to it. This cheesecake was also very easy to put together and was done in the time Dorie specified.
When I made this, I doubled the crust since the crust is my favorite part of a cheesecake. That resulted in some leftover batter that I froze to make this mini cheesecake (since I didn’t get a picture of the big cheesecake I made) and I also made some cheesecake balls to take to my mom since she saw them on my blog when I made them for Daring Bakers. She heard about how good they were from my sister and had been hinting for me to make them again, so I decided to take them home for a Christmas treat. Thanks Anne for a great pick! Head over to the Tuesdays with Dorie blog to see the other cheesecakes out there!
