I've only made one other cheesecake before this- and it was your typical cheesecake. This one called for separating the 3 eggs, and beating the yolks with the sugar, adding the rest of the ingredients except the egg whites, which you beat into stiff peaks, and then carefully fold in. I can now say that I like folding in egg whites...it is fun!
Dad is a Plain Cheesecake man, and I am NOT a fan of Blackberries, so those are the reasons why I did not make the topping.
Mom topped hers with Peach Jam.
Dad used Peach Jam & Picalilli.
I ate mine plain.
Sarah had Chocolate syrup.
~I used approximately 20 squares/one package/140g Graham Crackers for the crust.
~The baking time was off again- 45 minutes was too long.
~This is a Plain Cheesecake, the lovely yellow color is due to the fact I used golden free-range eggs (from: www.facebook.com/GuadalupeRanch).
~Maggie calls for 2 teaspoons of dry lemon peel, I thought that it was too much- a little bitter or harsh? Next time I would cut back.
