Cheesecake Elegante

Cheesecake Elegante

I used to make this as a kid… has been over 30 years since I last did. Worth it. The 2019 version is 99% organic with a probiotic sour cream top layer however. Magnifique!

Organic Cheesecake Elegante 
1 1/2 c. graham cracker crumbs
1/4 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. ground allspice
1/3 c. melted butter

Combine all ingredients. Spread in bottom of a 9-inch pie dish, pressing some of the crumbs up the sides to form a rim about 1 inch high.

2 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese at room temperature
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2/3 c. sugar
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Beat cheese until soft and creamy. Add eggs, sugar and vanilla, beating until thoroughly creamed and smooth. Pour into crust. Bake in 350 degree oven 25 minutes then top with sour cream layer.

1 1/2 c. commercial sour cream
1/4 c. sugar
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract or rum extract

Combine sour cream, sugar and extract. Spread over cheese layer. Return to oven; increase temperature to 450 degrees and bake 7 minutes. Remove from oven and cool, then chill. This is very rich so you will want to serve small pieces. Serves 10 to 12.
