Best Rustic Cheesecake


If you're a fan of cheesecake and want a simple recipe, this one


is for you.  It contains only six ingredients (plus the topping) and 

comes together in your blender.  And it is so creamy and delicious!




This recipe has a delicious sour cream topping, but you can skip




that in lieu of fresh fruit like strawberries or blueberries.   

   This is one of my favorite toppings


   to use on some of my plain desserts.




   Simply spread sliced almonds on a




   parchment covered baking sheet;

   sprinkle with a dusting of powdered




   sugar, then broil just until the sugar starts




   to melt and slightly browned.   This step




   takes only seconds.

You have so many options with this recipe...

•  You can use a 9 × 13-inch dish for this recipe; then cut into squares.


•  You can use a prepared mini muffin pan and get at least 2 dozen

    tiny cheesecakes.  Fill about two-thirds full.  Watch carefully in




    oven so they don't get too done.

•  You could also use a prepared regular-size muffin pan; should get




    about 12 little cheesecakes.




•  You could use a cake, pie, or tart pan with a removable bottom.  It




    makes such a beautiful presentation, especially when topped with




    the toasted, sugared almonds or sour cream topping.  I like to put




    it on a cake stand.  I used a regular pie pan for some of the





•  BUT, my favorite way is to line a cake pan with parchment paper,




   using another cake pan to press it onto place.  Pour in the filling;




   bake; cool; then gently pull down the edges of the paper and





Why I like this recipe...


•  It makes it's own crust.

•  Everything goes into a blender.
