Then a cherry blossom is your answer. This simple yet intricately flavorful cheesecake is great for both a big family lunch festival along with a romantic dinner, especially with a light sparkling wine.
And no, forget about purchasing the cherry cheesecake. Why don’t you make one instead? With the right tools and this simple how-to, you will be able to put together a scrumptious cherry cheesecake in no time.
For the crust, you will need a cup of graham cracker crumbs, sugar (about three to four tablespoons is enough), and some melted butter.
Now that you have all the ingredients on hand, you can begin by making the crust. Mix together the graham cracker crumbs, the melted butter and the sugar, and then force down the mixture into the bottom of a spring-form pan. Pop this in the oven and bake it at about 350 degrees for ten to twelve minutes.
While baking, go right on to creating the cake. It’s a fantastic idea to use an electric mixer to blend together the cream cheese, the eggs (remember to drop them in one by one), then the vanilla and sugar. As soon as you get a firm consistency, bake it at about 450 degrees for ten minutes. Then, adjust the temperature to approximately 25 degrees lower and go on baking for another twenty five minutes.
You can then carefully take the cake off the pan and allow the cake cool. Pop it in the refrigerator overnight (or for at least nine to twelve hours). Finally, generously spread the cherry filling over the cake.
