Cheesecake with Valentine Banner

This is the Peach Tree Tea Room in Fredricksburg's Famous Cheesecake Recipe topped with stabilized whipped cream I made for a client.  She gave it to her "Quiet Cupid" for Valentine's Day.

To "valentine" it up...added the heart banner...

Sweet!

Would you like to make your own?
Here's the delicious recipe from the Peach Tree Tea Room Cookbook.

Crust:
1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup melted butter

Mix the crust ingredients thoroughly and press into the bottom of a well-buttered 9" to 10" springform pan.  Bake 15 minutes in a preheated 325 degree oven.  Remove from oven and reduce temperature to 300 degrees.

Filling:
32 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
3 tablespoons flour
2 1/4 teaspoons vanilla (I use vanilla paste)
4 eggs
1 cup evaporated milk

1. Using an electric mixer, beat softened cream cheese with brown sugar until well blended.
2.  Add flour, vanilla, and the eggs -- one at a time, blending well after each.
3.  Gradually add evaporated milk.  Scrape down sides of bowl frequently and remix until no lumps remain.  Pour into greased pan.
4.  Bake 1 hour at 300 degrees.  Turn off oven and let the cake cool in the oven with the door closed for several hours or overnight.  Refrigerate.

Serves 14 - 16

I highly recommend the Peach Tree Tea Room Cookbook as well as a visit to the actual tea room in Fredricksburg, Texas.  Sadly, Cynthia Pedregon, the wonderful woman behind the Peach Tree passed away this month.  She has had a huge influence on me as I often turn to her cookbooks for trusted recipes and inspiration.  Good luck to Tina as she continues the legacy of her mother.


Smiles!

May share this pretty little cheesecake with some of the parties in the side bar=>
