Cheesecake Many Ways (Posted On: Tuesday, November 27, 2012)

 Decrease font 
A visit to Grill and Greens Eatery in Thornbury turned us on to a pretty neat way of serving up dessert – one recipe with many options.  Jean, shows us how to make the cheesecake step by step and also gives us some great suggestions for presentation and maximum dessert enjoyment just in time for the holidays.  This recipe is a snap and a great way to impress your dinner guests, or your spouse or yourself.



1 ½ cups crumbs (graham, Oreo, or ground nuts as a gluten free option)
3 tablespoons white sugar
1/3 cup butter or margarine


4   250 gram packages of cream cheese
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or alternate flavour)
4 eggs (at room temperature added one at a time)
½ cup sour cream
The crust can be formed into a traditional spring form pan, but we prefer to make cheesecake trios at Grill and Greens.  For this we use a muffin pan and liner. The crust is pushed into the bottome and filling added.
Bake at 350 degrees for approximately ten minutes. They should be just set in the middle and are prone to cracking.
The only limitations to what these flavours might be is your imagination. Some that we have tried and suggest are….
• Pumpkin, Caramel and Vanilla
• Peppermint, Vanilla and Candy Cane
• Chocolate, Pecan and Caramel
• Pumpkin, Nutmeg and Cinnamon
• Orange, Vanilla and Cranberry
To make the trios simply divide the filling batter and add desired flavours to each third of the batter and continue.

Once again the toppings can only be limited by you. I suggest crème fraiche which is easy to make, simply add 1 tablespoon of brown sugar to 1 cup of sour cream.
