My Mama’s Cheesecake


  • 1 sleeve (1 ½ cups) graham crackers crushed fine
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup melted butter

Blend ingredients well. Spread in 9X9 greased pan, reserving some to sprinkle on top- pat until firm.

  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2- 8oz. cream cheese packages, softened
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla

Mix then beat until smooth, spread on top of graham cracker base. Bake at 325⁰ for 30-40 minutes, until the filling is set but the still soft in the middle. Let cool.

  • 1- Jar blueberry or cherry pie filling.

Spread 1 jar pie filling on top. Sprinkle reserved graham cracker crumbs on top. Cover with plastic and refrigerate. Serve with whipped cream. I usually use the low-fat graham crackers and also the 1/3 less fat cream cheese. This recipe also works well with the mini tart pans for parties as well. I used heart shaped custard cups in the picture… Enjoy!!
