Most cooks and pastry chefs often have a favorite recipe and for me, I love making cheesecakes!
Although it’s time-consuming, the anticipation and preparation that goes into making a delectable cheesecake makes it worthwhile, especially when it’s enjoyed by the people you love. After cooking a specially prepared meal for my partner one evening, I thought, “every tasty meal deserves to have an equally tasty dessert.” I knew I wanted to make him something sweet, but I wasn’t willing to go through a tedious process, so I decided to make a cheesecake with the ingredients I had at hand. Days before, I picked up two Philadelphia Cream Cheese with a chocolate pie crust and a small container of sour cream, so I thought, “why not?” Then I looked through my pantry and saw that I had some confectioners sugar from some time ago and there, I was able to whip up a delicious cheesecake.
2 Philadelphia Cream Cheese bar
2 1/2 Cups Confectioners sugar
1 8oz Daisy Sour Cream
1 Chocolate Pie Crust
1/4 Cup Coconut Flour
Make sure cream cheese is at room temperature and softened to perfection. Mix cream cheese together with sour cream, eggs and sugar. If mixture isn’t thick enough, use some coconut flour to add more texture. When all of the ingredients have been properly mixed together, go ahead and add it to your pie crust, remembering to even it out. When you’re finished, place cheesecake into the oven at 350 degrees, let it cook for about 30 minutes or until brown. Remove cheesecake from the oven, let it cool off then refrigerate over night, unless you’re like me and you absolutely can’t wait. Next day your cheesecake should be nice and firm, and you’re free to top it off with whatever you like! That particular day, I topped mine off with cream cheese frosting and garnished it with pistachio halves and coconut flakes.
It was absolutely one of the best cheesecakes I’ve made and as much as we’ve enjoyed it, I am positive that you would too. It’s one of the simplest things you can do to show someone you care and without forgetting to mention, just how delightful it is to have a sweet treat when you’re stressed out with work and family, so go on and try this cheesecake recipe!
