Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This is a basic cheesecake recipe, it's the one recipe I can count on to always bake out the best, and is very easy to make also, it's a blank canvass for any topping you desire, you can substitute any flavor of extract you desire for the vanilla, I have even used 3-4 tablespoons of Irish cream or use any flavor of liquer the possibilities with this cheesecake are endless, for the best results use only full-fat products for this recipe!

I made this cheesecake a few months ago. I added chocolate chips to the mix and instead of the graham cracker crust, I used shortbread cookies. I made a dark chocolate ganache to the top of the cheesecake...mmm mmm good!! Next time I'll make a turtle cheesecake. The possiblities are endless.
