Yummy Sour Cream Cheesecake Recipe


– Crumbled graham crackers – 1 stick of melted butter – 1 tablespoon of sugar – 2 1/2 packages of cream cheese (20 oz) – 1 1/2 cups of FAGE Sour Cream – 1 cup of sugar – 1 1/2 tablespoons of vanilla extract – 2 eggs – 3 egg yolks – 1/3 cup heavy cream


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter the edges of cake pan. I like to add parchment paper to the sides of mine to give it a bit of a crusty edge.


To make the crust, mash up the graham crackers in a bag — they don’t have to be perfect! Add these into a bowl of melted butter (1 stick) and the sugar. Press this into the pan and bake for 10 minutes.


In a mixer, beat the FAGE Sour Cream for 15-20 seconds. Add in the cream cheese and sugar, mix for about 30 seconds.


In another bowl: mix vanilla, eggs, yolk and cream together. With the mixer on medium speed, slowly start to add these ingredients into the other mixture. Pour into the cooled crust.


I baked my cheesecake on 325 for an hour with no water bath. After an hour, open the oven door shut the door and keep the cheesecake in for another hour. Make sure oven is turned off.


Let your cheesecake sit in the fridge overnight. It’s beyond one of my favorite cheesecakes to date and FAGE is definitely the star of the show!
