Specialty Recipe

Double Top Cheesecake

There's nothing like a slice of creamy homemade cheesecake after a fine meal. Guests at the Double D agree this one is double delicious! The cheesecake stands alone, but a few fresh berries added to the plate make it even more special.

1-1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup + 1/3 cup + 1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
16 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon + 1 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream

Combine graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar and butter, mixing well. Pat evenly into the bottom and side of a 9-inch pie pan. Chill. In a bowl, beat cream cheese and eggs for 1 minute on medium speed. Add 1/3 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla and salt. Continue beating until well blended, about 1 minute. Pour into crust. Bake 35 minutes or until done.

Remove from oven and cool 10 minutes. While cake is cooling, mix second topping. Combine sour cream, remaining 1/3 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Spread evenly over cooled cheesecake. Return to 350-degree oven for 10 minutes. Remove and cool completely on wire rack. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight before serving.

This recipe can be found in the latest cookbook, Cooking Smart Using Ingredients on Hand, by Peni DiPietro and Denise DiPietro, owner of the Double D Guest Ranch.
