Classic Philly Cheesecake

I know about you but when I want cheesecake I want the real stuff 🙂 I have been making this for years and I don’t own a springform pan, I use a 9″ deep dish pie plate that I spray really good with cooking spray and it works perfectly. If you do have a springform pan, by all means, use it 🙂 

Classic Philly Cheesecake

What you need

1- 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs

1/4 cup melted butter

3 pkg of cream cheese, softened

3/4 cups sugar

3 eggs

Directions

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix graham crumbs and butter and press into your pan.

Beat cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl (I use my stand mixer) until well blended. Add eggs 1 at a time and mix on low speed after each egg just until blended. Once all eggs are mixed in, pour over cust.

Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until centre is almost set. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Refrigerate cheesecake for 4 hours, or if you live in a cold place like I do and its still cold outside sit it outside 🙂 Yep that’s how I cool stuff down in the winter months

I topped mine with Wildberry pie filling, you can use any kind you like or even chocolate, that’s the nice thing about this cheesecake you can top it with anything or eat it as is.

Banana Cream Pie With Meringue Topping

I made this last night for the family and used a Meringue topping it was very yummy 🙂 I hope you enjoy it as much as my family did.

Banana Cream Pie With Meringue Topping

What you need

1 2/3 cups water
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 (14 oz) can of Condensed Milk
3 egg yolks, beaten
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 (9 inch) pie crusts, already baked
3 medium bananas, sliced

Directions

Sperate your eggs, and save the white to make your meringue.
In a saucepan over medium heat mix water and cornstarch until smooth. Stir in condensed milk and egg yolks. Cook until thick in the saucepan. Remove from heat and Stir in 2 tablespoons butter. Add vanilla. Cool slightly (stirring occasionally). Pour 1/2 of filling on pie crust. Place sliced bananas on filling. Pour remainder of filling on the sliced bananas.

For the Meringue.

3 large egg whites, room temperature

Pinch of salt

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

6 tablespoons sugar, preferably superfine

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a mixing bowl, preferably stainless steel or glass beat the egg whites and a pinch of salt on low speed of an electric mixer until they are frothy. Add the cream of tartar and increase the mixer speed to medium; continue beating until the whites are fluffy, with large bubbles forming around the edges.  With the mixer running, add the sugar, a few teaspoons at a time, or until all of the sugar is incorporated. Continue beating until the peaks are firm but still glossy. Add the vanilla.Spoon the meringue onto the hot pie filling. If you are topping an unbaked pie filling, have it at room temperature before you top it with the meringue. Spread the meringue to the crust edge to seal the filling in.

Lisa’s Honey Ham Biscuits

Lisa’s Honey Ham Biscuits

These are super easy to whip up and perfect to serve with a soup   I double the recipe to make 2 for each person. 1 can will make 5. This has become a family Fav 

What you need
1 can Pillsbury Country Style Biscuits
5 pieces of deli black forest ham
5 pieces of Cheese, I have used swish or cheddar
dijon mustard (optional but makes it taste so good)
1/4 cup honey

Heat oven to 350°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.

Open dough and separate the 10 biscuits. flatten them to fit your ham in. You need 2 biscuits for each on for top and one for the bottom. On your flat biscuit place 1 piece of ham, place cheese in the middle of ham and fold over. Spread a thin layer of dijon mustard on top of ham, and then place another biscuit on top. Pinch edges together to seal both biscuits together all the way around. Continue this step for each of your biscuits. Place them on your prepared cookie sheet and bake in the oven for about 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. As soon as you take them out of the oven brush them with honey using a basting brush. Serve immediately.
