Easy Cheesecake Pie

A quick and simple twist on a cheesecake recipe!!! I know a lot of you out there love cheesecake, but don’t have the time for the traditional recipe. Mine is easy, fast, and a bit lighter than most cheesecakes, as I only use 2 eggs. Plus, by cheating a little bit and using a ready-made graham cracker crust, it makes things a little bit easier!!

 

Easy Cheesecake Pie

Recipe Ingredients


Recipe Ingredients:

FILLING:

16 oz. of softened cream cheese  (you can leave this out at room temp to soften, or do it in the
microwave–just be careful not to completely melt it!!)
1/2 cup plus 2 1/2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/3 cup sour cream

I have never been a big fan of really rich and heavy cheesecake, which usually calls for about 3-4 egg (no offense to those who prefer the traditional cheesecake!!)… I prefer mine a little smoother and lighter….and, using less eggs is less cholesterol for your system…. I’m just sayin’.

TOPPING:

1 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 tbsp powdered sugar

CRUST:

one ready made graham cracker pie crust!!!

 

Recipe Directions


  • In electric mixer at low speed, blend the cream cheese for about 2-3 minutes; add sugar and mix for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the vanilla, eggs and sour cream, blend for another 2 minutes.
  • Pour the filling into the pie crust and bake for about 20-30 minutes, or until the top is just starting to turn golden-brown.
  • Turn off the heat, crack the oven door, and leave cake set for about 20 more minutes. This step will help prevent the surface from cracking.
  • While the cake is baking, mix the topping ingredients by hand in small bowl; set aside.
  • Remove cake from oven and let cool at room temperature.
  • Cover loosely with foil and chill for at least one hour before adding topping.
  • Spread topping evenly over cake with the back side of a spoon, or rubber spatula.
  • Return to fridge and chill, uncovered, about 2 more hours.
  • This recipe serves 2-6, depending on your portion preferences!!!I hope you will enjoy this quick and scrumptious recipe as much as I do!! Take care everyone, and have a sweet day!!!

This Raw Cacao Pudding is packed with superfoods, from antioxidant loaded raw cacao powder to heart healthy monounsaturated fats because of a key, secret ingredient – avocado.

It’s taken time, but fats are finally getting the positive attention that they deserve – healthy fats that is! With so much focus on bad fats, such as the ones found in fast food or processed foods, healthy fats that are actually beneficial to our bodies have been pushed to the side. Thankfully that trend has given way to the truth – not all fats are bad for you!

Recipe Ingredients


Serves 2

  • 1 avocado, large
  • 3-4 tablespoons raw cacao
  • 1/4 cup raw, local honey
  • 1/4 cup almond milk

Recipe Directions


  1. Place all ingredients into a food processor or high powered blender.
  2. Process until smooth.
  3. Taste and adjust cacao and honey as needed.
  4. Place in the refrigerator to let the flavors meld.
  5. Once the pudding has chilled, serve into bowls and enjoy!
