This is a basic cheesecake without all the fuss. My mother doesn't care for graham crackers so we used a shortbread crust which was fantastic.

Great dessert without heating up the kitchen!! This is how I make cheesecake during the hot summer months too! For anyone making their own graham crust, use 1/3 C melted butter, 1/4 C sugar and 1 1/4 C graham crumbs and press into glass pie plate. Microwave the crust on high for 2 min. and allow to cool briefly. I sometimes top with fresh berries and a glaze. Try this one, you will love it. Thx for posting Beth!
