Does anyone have a favorite cheese cake recipe? Local stores put Philadelphia cream cheese on sale for the holidays, so I am going to indulge myself with a cheesecake.

I prefer to be able to taste the cream cheese, so even a really good basic, plain cheesecake would be wonderful.

I like to make cheesecake in muffin tins using cupcake papers. For Thanksgiving I made a great pumpkin cheesecake recipe with gingersnap crust mixed with pecans--it was a big hit. There is no shortage of cheesecake recipes on the net. Just be sure your cream cheese is at room temp before you mix in eggs and sugar.

Easy Cheese Cake:

2 lg pkgs philadelphia cream cheese
1 small whole milk ricotta
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
3 tbsp flour
3 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla
1 stick melted butter
1-16 oz sour cream

Grease a 9 or 10" spring form pan. Mix cream cheese and butter using a hand or stand mixer. Add ricotta and other ingredients, putting sour cream in last. Bake 1 hour on 350 degrees. Shut oven off, leave cake in oven 2 hours without opening door. cover and refrigerate.

This cheese cake is smooth creamy and not gritty like the traditional Italian cheese cakes are. It does not have a crust but you can put one if you like. My mom and I have been making this recipe for years that her neighbor gave to her. I know the addition of four and cornstarch sound weird but trust me it works.
