Cheryl’s Cheesecake

From the first time I tried this recipe I was in love. This is such a delicious New York style version. My friend Cheryl is like another sister or cousin and I am so happy she shared this recipe with me so many years ago! (At my first bridal shower I believe!) It is a simple plain, cheesy, creamy cake. I love to top it with my favorite fruit such as fresh strawberries! It is not a low-calorie dessert so if you were looking for one stop reading now! You will also need a good spring-form pan for this, a must for anyone making a cheesecake.

INGREDIENTS:

4- 8 ounce tubs of whipped cream cheese

¼ pound of unsalted butter

16 ounces sour cream (1 pint)

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1½ cups sugar

5 eggs

DIRECTIONS:

1. Allow cream cheese, sour cream and butter to come to room temperature. In a large bowl, blend together all ingredients except sugar.

2. Beat eggs into mixture one at a time, mixing well after each addition.

3. Pour mixture into a greased 10″ spring-form pan. Place spring-form pan into a large roasting pan that has been half filled with hot water.

4. Bake in a 375ºF oven for one hour. Cool in oven for 30-45 minutes. Remove from oven and continue to cool.

5. When cool remove from spring-form pan carefully. Serve plain or top with your favorite fruit topping!

Sangria

Well it’s the weekend and time for a cocktail or two or three…This recipe came about from experimenting with all types of sangria until I came up with a great mix. Sangria is great for any season! It’s a great party drink and even people who don’t like red wine will love this! All the fruit makes it refreshing and enticing! Have a glass and pretend you are on some tropical island away from all craziness of the world.

Ingredients:

1 bottle of dry or sweet red wine, whichever you prefer

1/4 Cup brandy

1/4 Cup orange liqueur (triple sec, Gran Marnier)

2 TBS lime juice

2 TBS orange juice

1/2 orange thinly sliced

1/2 lemon thinly sliced

1-2 apples, cored and cut into small bite size pieces. (any apple will be fine)

1-2 peaches, cut into small bite size pieces (frozen is good to use also)

1 750ml bottle of sparkling water, seltzer or club soda, chilled

Directions:

Combine all ingredients except for the sparkling water into a large container or pitcher, cover and chill for 1-2 hours or more. Even overnight is better! You can also add more fruit if you want.

When ready to serve add sparkling water and pour into punch  bowl or pitcher.
