vPiMC: Episode 36 - Cooking With Taylor: Mom's Cheesecake

Join Taylor (with fine camera work by Babaloo) as he shares with the listening public the recipe for his mom's famous cheesecake. Plus, some other stuff. Be sure to check out episode 85, being uploaded the same time. Ho ho ho!

Here's the recipe:

CRUST:
8 tbsp butter
8 tbsp sugar
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder

Cream sugar and butter. Add eggs, four, baking powder. Mix together until ingredients form soft dough. Butter 8 x 12baking dish. Place flour on fingers (to keep dough from sticking), and spread dough into baking dish sides and bottom. (DO NOT roll - dough will be too soft.)

FILLING:
2 8 oz. pkgs of cream cheese
1 cup sugar
4 eggs, separated
4 tbsp flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups milk
pinch of salt (for egg whites)

Cream cream cheese, sugar, flour, vanilla and egg yolks together - mix well. SLOWLY add milk until cheese is dissolved. Add pinch of salt to egg whites. Beat until stiff. Fold egg whites into cream cheese filling; keep folding until lumps of egg whites dissolve. Pour into crust.

Place cinnamon on top of cheesecake. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until toothpick comes out of cheesecake clean.
