Now that I’m older, and am a little bit more established in my life, I feel an obligation to come to family events with something to contribute whether that be a side dish, dessert or bottle of wine (those are usually my go-to’s). After hearing the menu for Easter this year, I realized that we didn’t have anything for dessert, so I did some research and thought it’d be great to make a simple, classic, New York-style cheesecake. One that tasted really good but wouldn’t take me a ton of time. I did some digging and found a 5 ingredient, 5 step cheesecake recipe that was so easy, I wanted to share here for you. Now no one has an excuse to come empty handed to their next family gathering, girls night, book club, church group, anything. Ingredients and instructions are below, I hope you love as much as my family and I did!
-2 packages cream cheese (softened)
-1/2 TSP of vanilla
-1/2 Cup sugar
-Pre-made graham cracker crust
What You’ll Need:
-Heat oven to 375 degrees
-Mix in a large mixing bowl the softened cream cheese, vanilla and sugar; when that’s mixed, add the 2 eggs and beat the eggs into the mixture until you get a completely smooth texture
-Pour the mixture straight into the pre-made graham cracker crust, smooth over with a spatula until evenly distributed ( I did a little taste test, ya know to make sure it wasn’t poisoned or anything lol)
-Bake in the oven for 25 minutes
-Lastly, take out of the oven and set aside to cool; after it is cool, put in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat
Viola! You are done and now can grab a glass of wine and cheers yourself for making an easy and delicious dessert that everyone will LOVE!
I love to cook, but the last thing I want to do when I get home from work is spend hours in the kitchen. I’ve recently found that, even though we are all so busy, cooking for yourself doesn’t have to be hard or time consuming. There are TONS of recipes out there where you don’t have to spend boat loads of money and can still make amazing food you crave in no time. I look forward to sharing some more of my finds!
