Cheese Cake

No Photo


  • 2 pounds cream cheese, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 pint heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Lemon rind, optional


  1. I use a chocolate wafer crust . Put into a 9-inch springform pan and bake 1 hour or so (till slightly browned at edges) at 350 degrees F. Don't over-bake...tends to dry out the cake.

Can also bake in 2 ready made crusts (Graham or chocolate). Adjust time if making 2 pies to 30 minutes.
