Junior's Cheesecake from the Soulfoul Recipes newsletter
Don't know where they got Junior's Cheesecake recipe?? I
happen to have it also for at least 40 years.
8 Graham crackers or enough to cover bottom and up sides halfway.
1 pound plus 14 ounces cream cheese
7/8 cup sugar (l tblsp less than 1/2 cup)
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 extra large egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 cup heavy cream
IN A MIXING BOW, CREAM CHEESE UNTIL LIGHT AND FLUFFY. GRADUALLY
ADD TGHE COMBINED SUGAR AND CORNSTARCH. BEAT IN EGG, THEN
VANILLA AND HEAVY CREAM. POUR INTO A WELL GREASED 7 INCH PAN
WITH GRAHAM CRACKER CRUMBS ON BOTTOM OF PAN. BAKE IN A
PREHEATED 450 DEGREE OVEN FOR APPROX. 40 TO 45 MINUTES OR UNTIL
TOP IS GOLDEN BROWN. COOL FOR 3 HOURS, THEN REFRIGERATE 15
MINUTES BEFORE SERVING.
This recipe was in the DAILY NEWSPAPER years and years ago. In
fact I could not find a 7" pan so I went to Junior's and the
chef gave me 2 throw away tins. Terry
