This wealthy, creamy cheesecake is made even higher with a thick layer of candy and salty graham cracker crust on the highest and backside. Plus, there’s no water bathtub with this recipe!
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.
