Recipe 2

A sandwich cut in half on a plate

Ingredients:

  • 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened
  • 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 5  large eggs, separated
  • Garnishes: powdered sugar, fresh fruit, caramel or chocolate sauce

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 325°. Tightly wrap the bottom and sides of a 9″ springform pan with aluminum foil, and spray inside the pan with cooking spray. Separate egg yolks and whites.

2. Using an electric mixer, in a large bowl beat cream cheese until smooth, about 1 minute. Add sweetened condensed milk and whisk until fully blended, about 1 minute. Add egg yolks and mix until fully blended.

3. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form, about 5 to 6 minutes.

4. Gently fold egg whites into the cream cheese and milk mixture, stirring just until fully blended.

5. Transfer cheesecake batter to springform pan, and place the pan in the center of a large baking dish. Pour boiling water into the baking dish, reaching 1/3 of the way up to the outside of the springform pan

6. Bake in preheated oven 50 minutes or until set, then turn heat off and let the cheesecake cool in the oven for 1 hour. Let it cool completely before serving. If you are not serving the cheesecake the same day, cover and refrigerate until you are ready to serve.

7. Use your imagination and top the cheesecake with fresh fruit, a dusting of powdered sugar, shaved chocolate, caramel sauce, warmed fruit preserves, or fresh herbs and citrus zest.
