DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Mix graham cracker crumbs, nuts and cinnamon with melted butter.
  • Press on bottom and sides of 9 inch springform pan.
  • Bake 7 minutes, remove from oven, let cool.
  • Increase oven temp to 475.
  • Combine cream cheese, 1 3/4 cup sugar, 3 T. flour, 5 eggs and 2 egg yolks and mix completely. Add Almond extract.
  • Add cream and mix just enough to blend.
  • Pour filling over crust and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Reduce oven temp to 200 and bake for one hour.
  • Turn oven off and leave cake in oven for another hour.
  • Remove from oven, cool slightly, place in refrigerator overnite.
  • Top with fruit if desired.
  • Note: I find that setting a bowl/pan of water on the bottom rack while baking helps prevent cracking. NOT everytime, but usually! That's with any cheesecake, not just this one.
