Once we discovered the ease of making cheesecake, it became my mom’s and my go-to recipe. All our cheesecakes had graham cracker crusts and were lightly flavoured with fruit or on my insistence, chocolate chips. We made it for birthdays and holidays until, one day, it wasn’t gobbled up by my dessert loving family. We had gone overboard, making it too many times, for too many occasions. After a long cheesecake baking hiatus, I felt it was time to revisit my recipes. Let’s call it a craving.
An additional motivation for this recipe was to test out some new equipment. I recently invested in a food processor. I have wanted one for years but with all the moving around that we were doing, it just didn’t seem like a wise investment. Now, we’re in a city that we wish to stay and in a home that has a bit more storage than our apartments of the past.
