Almond Cheesecake with Nut Crust Recipe

Cheesecake is a sweet dessert consisting of one or more layers. The main, and thickest layer, consists of a mixture of soft, fresh cheese (typically cream cheese or ricotta), eggs, vanilla and sugar; if there is a bottom layer it often consists of a crust or base made from crushed cookies (or digestive biscuits), graham crackers, pastry, or sponge cake.

Almond Cheesecake with Nut Crust Recipe
Nut Crust:
  • 1 9 inch springform pan
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped nuts
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, softened
  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF
  2. Place all ingredients in mixing bowl and blend thoroughly
  3. Press firmly the mixture into the bottom and partially up the sides of a greased springform pan
  4. Bake for about 6 minutes or until the crust is a light golden brown. Cool before filling

Almond Cheesecake Filling:
  • 1 pound cream cheese, softened to room temp.
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/3 cup chopped almonds
  • 3 cups sour cream
  1. Heat oven to 375ºF
  2. Beat together cream cheese and sugar until fluffy
  3. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating thoroughly after each egg
  4. Add extracts, almonds and sour cream. Mix until well blended
  5. Pour mixture into prepared crust and bake for 1 hour, or until set. Turn off oven, open the oven door slightly and
cool to room temp. Chill.
Top with whatever you like or plain. Cherries go great with almonds and so does chocolate. I whipped heavy cream, added vanilla and almond extract, powdered sugar, until the whipped cream was thick. Stiff peaks.
Enjoy
