Judy Sager’s Fabulous Cheesecake Recipe

This cheesecake will call to you in the night and haunt your dreams. It’s that good!



1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs

3 T. sugar

1/3 cup butter


Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar and butter. Press into pan.

Cheesecake Ingredients:

3 (8 oz) pkgs. cream cheese at room temperature.

1  1/2 cups sugar.

5 egg (room temperature)

2 tsp. Vanilla (I use real Mexican vanilla.)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix cream cheese and sugar. Beat for 5 minutes. (Really) Add 5 eggs – one at a time. Mix gently between each one. Add vanilla. Mix. Pour into graham cracker pie crust. Cook for 40 minutes or, until set. (I use a sheet pan with a grid and put water in the pan to keep them from cracking.)  Cool.

At this point you can wrap in plastic and freeze for 6 months. Or, serve it!

Top it with Cherries

When ready to serve either fresh from the fridge or defrosted from the freezer do one of the following: open one can of cherry pie filling and spread it on top. Or, melt some preserves and spread them on top.

Turn It in to a Chocolate Cheesecake

To make it a chocolate cheese cake use chocolate graham crackers in pie crust. Take semi-sweet chocolate chips (I use the mini) put them in a jar with flour and shake to coat. Fold into the mixture and bake. When done, I squeeze chocolate syrup on top, in a pattern of your choice. This is a favorite of children and men… and really, everyone in the entire world!

Try it. You’ll see I’m not bragging. I’m just stating the facts!
