Getting Started!

When I first started making cheesecakes I worried about a few things like will the cake be too thick or will it be too dry. If you have these concerns, don't worry making cheesecakes is not only fun but a learning experience. The more you do it, the more you will get the consistency just the way you want it.

The first thing you need to do is make sure you have the necessary ingredients listed here and the necessary tools such as your mixer, your bowl, the proper utensils, and the pan that you will put your cake in. You may need to gather a list and right down the ingredients and take a quick trip to your local grocery store. Make sure when you write down your list you include amounts as well.


*Preheat Oven 350 degrees F (180 degrees C)

*9-inch (23 cm) cheesecake pan, ungreased, or springform pan with 3-inch (7.5 cm) sides, greased

Crust

1-1/2 cups pecans, toasted and coarsely ground 375 ml

1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted 50 ml

1/4 cup all-purpose flour 50 ml

Filling

3 packages (each 8 oz/250 g) cream cheese, softened

1 cup toasted chopped pecans 250 ml

1-1/4 cups granulated sugar 300 ml

1 cup plain yogurt 250 ml

1 tsp. vanilla extract 5 ml

4 eggs

Topping

1-1/4 whipped cream-toasted chopped pecans 50 ml

1. Crust-In a bowl, combine pecans, flour and butter. Press into the bottom of cheesecake pan and freeze.

2. Filling: In a mixer bowl fitted with paddle attachment, beat cream cheese, yogurt and sugar until very smooth for three minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each is added. Fold in pecans and vanilla by hand.

3. Pour over frozen crust, smoothing out to sides of pan. Bake in preheated oven until top is light brown and center has a slight jiggle to it, 45 to 55 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for two hours. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least six hours before adding toppings or serving.

4.Toppings: Ice top of cake with classic whipped cream, if desired. Sprinkle with chopped pecans.

*Tips


Some of my own personal tips:

*You can also purchase a crust that is already made is you are pushing for time of just don't want the hassle of making the crust.

* To give your cheesecake more added flavor, you could add more flavoring or even add flavored yogurt.

*If you are not someone that enjoys baking try using no-bake cheesecake recipes.

You can use this recipe to create other fun cheesecake recipes that will make your taste buds happy. In addition you could add a chocolate or caramel topping to make the recipe more tasty and exciting, or better yet you can also exclude the nuts or add a strawberry or key lime topping Its your choice, what ever you decide to do, its your call.
