Only 4 ingredients in the filling, 4 in the crust, and fruit of your choice makes this the Easiest Cheesecake Ever! And it gets rave reviews!
I was on a mission to clean out my fridge, pantry and freezer. I had accumulated all kinds of miscellaneous ingredients from shopping for the holiday season. So I was forcing myself not to grocery shop, but to use up what I had on hand.
It is good to find the bottom of your chest freezer from time to time. And discover all those odds and ends tucked away in the fridge freezer. And all those things that have worked their way to the back of the pantry.
The challenge is to make something appetizing with all those odds and ends!
This basic cheesecake was an absolute winner!
It doesn’t have any sour cream or cottage cheese, no water bath to bake. It bakes up fairly densely like those New York cheesecakes.
You can add the fruit topping of your choice to give it whatever flavour you want. I used my homemade Bread Machine Blueberry Jam and it was delicious. You could use any juicy jam, fresh or frozen fruit.
You can make a graham wafer crust with only 4 ingredients or you could buy a graham wafer pie crust and bake the filling in that.
