Cooking with Chloe!

Chloe and I decided we wanted to bake this afternoon! Auntie Amanda and auntie Abi back in Maine always use to let her help bake cookies so she is a bit of a cookie nut. I'm not really a cookie fan.. baha. So I suggested we make a cheesecake instead (which she also LOVES)

Chloe bean chilling on the counter with all our ingredients :O)

We used a "cheesecake factory" recipe I found online I just used my own graham cracker crust because I didn't have all the nuts & crazy things theirs called for..
Chloe got the job of breaking up one package of graham crackers for the crust

The crust is the easiest part all you need is one package of graham crackers a half a stick of mostly melted butter & a pinch of cinnamon!
Pour in your butter and cinnamon & mix it all up!
then pack it into your cheesecake pan! tada SO EASY :O)

Preheat your oven to 350 :O)
You're going to need:
1 1/2 lbs of cream cheese
1 1/3 cups of sugar
5 large eggs
16 oz of sour cream
1/4 cup of flour
2 tsp of vanilla extract
2 tsp of lemon juice

Beat the cream cheese until it is light & fluffy then add the sugar after those are completely mixed add one egg at a time until they are all blended in. Add the flour, vanilla & lemon juice, mix well.  Then its finally time for the sour cream! [Chloe's favorite part because she got to lick the spoon & measuring cup.. what a nut ;O)]

yummy sour cream! LOL

Pour the mixture into your cheesecake pan then bake for one hour and 15 minutes, when the time is up turn your oven off but leave the cheesecake in for another hour with the door open a crack, remove & let refrigerate overnight! So Yummy!
mine cracked *bummer* it will still be delicious when its cooled though! :O)
All done!
