What do you like to do for fun? My three favorite things are drawing, writing ,and best of all cooking. I LOVE cooking and baking! I make anything from omelets to brownies. This is one of my favorite recipes:
New York-Style Cheesecake
From Nerdy Nummies
1 1/2 cups cookie crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
5 tablespoons salted butter, melted
4 packages ( 8 ounces each) cream cheese, at room temperature
1/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup sour cream
Preheat oven to 350 F
Make the crust: In a large bowl, whisk together the cookie crumbs and sugar. Stir in the melted butter until the crumbs are evenly moistened. Press the crumb mixture onto the bottom and 2 inches up the sides of a 9-inch springform platform pan. Bake for 10 min to set the crust. Remove from oven to cool, but leave the oven on.
Make the filling: In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth and light.
Beat in eggs, vanilla, and cornstarch until just combined (do not over-mix)
Mix in the sour cream until well blended.
Pour the mixture into the prepared crust ans spread evenly.
Bake at 350 F for 45 min. Turn the oven off, prop the door open slightly, and let the cake sit for 1 hour.
Remove the oven and place on a wire rack to cool to room temperature.
Cover and refrigerate until well chilled before serving.
