Hello! It's the holidays! Wait a minute ~ Christmas is THIS week! Eek! Are you ready? I know with all the busyness of the holidays & the fun I don't want to be stuck in the kitchen. So that is why I have several simple recipes that are my go to recipes every single year. One of these recipes that our family has used over & over again is this cheesecake recipe. I absolutely love this easy recipe, & I am excited to share it with you. It's easy, tastes amazing & is super simple to whip up for any occasion. You can also change up the crust & toppings to make it a little different every single time. So today I am going to share this simple Chocolate Drizzled Cheesecake with a Cookie Crust recipe that would be perfect for Christmas or New Years. So let's get started!



For the chocolate drizzled cheesecake you will need ~

Crust
  • 1 cup crushed chocolate cream filled cookies
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
Mix crushed cookies & butter together well and press into the bottom of a 10 inch springform pan with a spoon. Set aside. I usually put it in the refrigerator while I am making the rest because it helps it to set up better.


Filling
  • 3 8-ounce packages of Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 5 eggs (set these out when you begin so they will be at room temperature)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Beat cream cheese and lemon juice in a large mixing bowl until soft and creamy. Add the eggs, sugar & salt.  Beat on medium speed for 10 minutes ~ scraping sides of bowl often.


Pour mixture into crust and bake at 350° for 45 minutes.


You’ll know it's done when you touch the center and it bounces back. When done remove to a wire rack and let stand for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile combine in a small bowl ~
  • 1-1/2 cups sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Stir well and spread over cheesecake.  Bake at 350° for another 10 minutes.  Cool.  Chill in refrigerator before removing from pan. When you are ready to serve drizzle the top with chocolate syrup. Then enjoy!
