For the crust:

  • 1 cups graham cracker crumbs about 8 full rectangles
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted

For the cheesecake:

  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 16 oz cream cheese 2 packages, softened
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pie filling optional


  • For the crust:
    1. Combine the graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, and melted butter in a medium sized bowl. Whisk with a fork until crumbs start to form and the butter is mixed well into the crumbs.
    2. Firmly press the crumbs into the bottom of a 9 inch pan. Set aside.

    For the cheesecake:
    1. Pour the cream into a large mixing bowl. Whisk until stiff peaks form, about 3 to 5 minutes. Set aside.
    2. Place the cream cheese, powdered sugar, sour cream, and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl. Whisk 2 minutes, or until combined and smooth.
    3. Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture using a spatula. Pour over the graham cracker crust.
    4. Chill at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
    5. Serve topped with fruit pie filling if desired.



Be sure to chill the cheesecake before serving. A well whipped heavy cream and chill will help give this cheesecake a thick but light texture.
