Made a heath #cheesecake for my grandma (Taken with Instagram)
brought these to my girlfriend’s house for easter last week. super easy and super delicious! i followed the graham cracker crust recipe on the box, baked then for like 8 minutes, then put them in the fridge.
prepared all the cheesecake stuff and made that. the downside is working with cream cheese - it’s a pain. i left it on the counter for like 3 hours and made it much easier.
i tried a plain one and it was pretty decadent, didn’t think that the whipped cream would be necessary, but that with the cherry pie filling makes them perfect. some of the recipes called for vanilla wafers or oreos in the bottom, while i’m sure those won’t be terrible, the graham cracker crust turned out great!
nutella cheesecake - round 2.
way better. was pretty happy with the first one, but heard you really need to make your own crust. got a springform pan from ikea for a few bucks. i made the crust out of crushed chocolate chip cookies and melted butter. patted it down and baked for 10 minutes @ 350. then chilled in the fridge. you have to put some pam all over the pan as it makes it much easier taking the springform pan apart.
turned out WAY better than round 1. the crust was incredible and so was the cheesecake. win.
