My Mothers Cheesecake Recipe

This Cheesecake is a delicious dessert that consists of a creamy filling made from whipped cream cheese, crust made from crushed graham crackers.

Ingredients For The Crust:

  • 1 1/2 packages of Lieber’s graham crackers
  • 1/4 cup of oil

Ingredients For The Filling:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 package of vanilla sugar
  • 4 tubs of Norman’s 8 oz whipped cream cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Crust:
    • Crush the graham crackers until fine crumbs are formed. You can use a food processor or place them in a sealed plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin.
    • In a medium bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs with the oil until well coated.
    • Press the mixture evenly into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch springform pan to form the crust.
    • Place the crust in the preheated oven and bake for about 10 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely.
  3. Filling:
    • In a large mixing bowl, crack the eggs and whisk them lightly.
    • Add the sugar and vanilla sugar to the eggs and whisk until well combined.
    • Add the whipped cream cheese to the bowl and use an electric mixer or a whisk to mix everything until smooth and creamy.
    • Pour the filling into the cooled graham cracker crust, spreading it evenly.
  4. Baking:
    • Place the springform pan in the oven and bake for about 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until the center is set and the edges are slightly golden.
    • Turn off the oven and leave the cheesecake in the oven for another hour
    • Once cooled, refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 2 hours or overnight to allow it to set completely.
    • Pro-Tip: place pan in Boiling Water Bath
    • Pro-Tip 2: Cover spring form pan with sheet of foil to prevent from burning or browning the top
  5. Serving:
    • Before serving, you can optionally garnish the cheesecake with whipped cream, fresh berries, or a dusting of powdered sugar.
    • Optional Topping Fruit, Melted Milk Chocolate, Chocolate or caramel syrup or drizzle blueberry pie filling, bowl of pecans, boozy cherries
