A real cheesecake. For when you NEED a little cheat from the ol' diet. A real cheesecake. For when you NEED a little cheat from the ol' diet.
Number of Servings: 10


    1/2 C Ginger Snaps
    1/2 C Vanilla Wafers
    - 2 T white sugar
    - 3 T melted butter

    - 16 oz cream cheese, room temperature
    - 3/4 cup white sugar
    - 2 large eggs, room temperature
    - 1/4 cup whipping cream
    - 1 tsp vanilla
    - 1 Tbsp flour


Take ginger snaps and vanilla wafers and crush 'em to teeny pieces. Add sugar, and pour melted butter over. Press in to pan. Mix ingredients, adding eggs last, and gently mixing one at a time until integrated. Do not overbeat! Use room temperature ingredients.

You can cook this the traditional way, in a low oven (325*) for an hour or so, but I like cooking cheesecake in the crock pot. Who wants an oven on that long anyway! That, and temperature don't fluctuate like crazy and lead to cracking.

Crock pot: Use a 1.5 quart dish, add an inch of water in the bottom of the crock (need a 7qt crockpot, about) and cook for about an hour and a half, until jiggly but not wet in the middle. Turn off the crock, let it sit for an hour, and after that move in to fridge to set for 2 hours. Wait. It is worth it!

Finally, take the whole thing in to your office, take one piece for yourself, and then let the rest of your coworkers save you from yourself!!!
