Easy CheesecIKE (get it, Ike?)

I had some cream cheese that was going to go bad so I made a cheesecake, I've never made one before and it was so good. It was okay last night but it was still warm but this morning (yes, I've already eaten cheesecake this morning) when it was nice and cold it was delicious! !

We'll call it Ike's Cheesecake and I got the recipe from

  • 1 (9 inch) prepared shortbread pie crust ( I made a crust from 9 whole graham crackers processed in food processor and 1/4 cup melted butter and just a dash of sugar, baked on 325 for 15 minutes)
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sour cream


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Cream together cream cheese and sugar. Add eggs one at time, blending well. Add vanilla and sour cream. Pour into shortbread crust.
  3. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes in the preheated oven, or until cake jiggles evenly across the top when lightly shaken. Run a knife around the outside edge, but leave the cake in the pan. Let cool on counter, then place in refrigerator. Remove from pan when completely chilled, and serve.
