I like a very good cheesecake. Each my Best Oreo Cheesecake and Straightforward Caramel Pecan Cheesecakes are all the time massive hits. However no matter simply how scrumptious your cheesecake filling is, it’s simply not a cheesecake with out the proper crust.

And if I’m being completely trustworthy, that crust is normally my favourite half. I’m the one who slices the cheesecake and steals a chunk of crust or two off the opposite items simply so I can have extra crust. You understand you’re responsible, too… 😂

So after I noticed a recipe for a cheesecake with crust on each the highest and backside a couple of weeks again on Fb, I knew it needed to be in my future.

So, after I took my basic cheesecake filling and sandwiched it between a virtually triple portion of my graham cracker crust recipe, one thing magical was born.

And, y’all… I’m kinda obsessive about this.

Now, I hate coping with a water bathtub, so in typical “Stacey” trend, I made this recipe with out one – similar to my different cheesecakes.

Water baths gradual the cooking course of all the way down to maintain the highest stage and stop it from cracking. (It additionally helps with the feel somewhat bit.) However since we’re topping this cheesecake with a crust, we don’t have to fret an excessive amount of about seems.

Should you’re feeling like an overachiever, you possibly can completely use a water bathtub for this recipe, you’ll simply want to regulate the cooking time.

How do I inform if my cheesecake is finished?

Most people take a look at cheesecake doneness by giving it somewhat shake or faucet. The highest needs to be largely set with somewhat jiggle proper within the middle.

I favor to make use of an prompt learn digital thermometer and take the cheesecake’s temp proper within the middle. You’ll need the cheesecake to be proper at 145°F.

The issue with this, after all, is that it leaves a gap in your cheesecake. However if in case you have a topping occurring the cheesecake, you possibly can fill that small gap in with the topping. Within the case of this recipe, you possibly can merely scoot somewhat little bit of that prime crust over to fill the opening.
