For the first time in 1,000 years, I’m actually not the one prepping for a large holiday dinner.  We actually accepted an invitation instead of extending one to 30 something people.  Of course, me being as obsessed with food as I am, my hostess gift will not come in the form of pretty, delicate holiday related shaped soaps, I will come bearing the gift of velvety creaminess, a festive glazed berry cheesecake.

Cheesecake with Triple Berry Topping

  • 1½ c crushed cookies (graham, gingersnaps, amaretti, etc)
  • 6 tb melted butter
  • 2 ts sugar
  • ¼ ts nutmeg
  • 4 blocks (8 oz ea) cream cheese
  • 1 c sugar {1/2 c more if you’d like}
  • 4 eggs
  • Zest of 2 lemons
  • 2 ts good vanilla extract
  • 2 tb flour
Berry Good Topping
  • ½ c or 1 c seedless berry jelly
  • 16 oz (2 c of berries)

  1. The first things you want to do: preheat your oven to 350 and wrap your springform pan in foil.
  2. For the crust, combine everything together and press it onto the bottom of your pan and bake at 350 for about 10 min.
  3. For the filling, take your softened cream cheese and break it up.
  4. Slowly add your sugar (remember to not over mix. You don’t want to incorporate too much air)
  5. Crack in one egg at at time, blending in quick spurts between each addition.
  6. Blend in your zest and vanilla.
  7. Lastly, sprinkle in your flour and blend again.
  8. Bake the cheesecake at 350 for 1 hour.
  9. For the topping, heat up your jelly and toss and coat your berries. Spoon this over your cheesecake.
  10. Chill your cheesecake overnight.

Merry Christmas Eve!  I love you all!!!
