Jane's Cheesecake

Silver Post Medal for All Time! 288 Posts

Jane made this for us back in the late 1970's - it is so good! You can top a slice with a spoonful of cherry pie filling, peach, pineapple, raspberry, strawberry, chocolate sauce, etc . Even plain it's great. I cut it in single servings and freeze most of the cheesecake for a special treat. Just thaw 1-2 pieces at a time.




  • 3 cups crushed graham crackers
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cube margarine, softened (stick)


  • 4 (8 oz.) pkgs. cream cheese, cubed - microwave until soft

  • 1- 1/3 cups sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. pure vanilla extract (not imitation)


  • 2 cups sour cream

This sounds an awful lot like the recipe I've had for years, I wonder if it is? It's a New York style cheesecake & just thinking about it makes my mouth water! :b. Haven't made it in awhile, thanks for reminding me!


One tip I might add (that was included in my recipe): sometimes cheesecake will crack on top. To prevent this, wrap foil around the bottom & side of the spring form pan, & when you bake it, set the pan in a roast pan with a couple of inches of water.It adds moisture to prevent the cheesecake from drying & cracking.
