Lizzy's Christmas Goodies!

Yum! New York Cheesecake is the best! Read this week's article to learn all about how to make Chantal's New York Cheesecake - Lizzy the Lizard style!
Thanksgiving may be over but Christmas is just around the corner. I'm Lizzy and here is my sister Lily, live from our kitchen. Today, we have a cheesecake recipe: Chantal's New York Cheesecake!

First you will need the following:
  • 15 graham crackers, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons of butter, melted
  • 4 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese
  • 1 ½ white sugar
  • ¾ cup of milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup of all purpose flour.

Second, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease a 9-inch springform pan. Then mix the graham cracker crumbs with the melted butter in a medium bowl. Press it onto the bottom of the springform pan. Third, in a large bowl, mix cream cheese with the sugar until smooth. Blind in the mild and then mix in one egg at a time, just enough to incorporate. Next, mix in the sour cream, the vanilla and flour until smooth. Then pour filling into prepared crust. Finally, bake in preheated oven for one hour. Turn the oven off and let the cake cool in the oven with the door closed for 5-6 hours. This will prevent the cake from cracking. And last but and least, chill it in the fridge until it's time to be served!

Hope you guys like this recipe have a fun time baking this Christmas! This is Lizzy and her sister, Lily signing off.
