Pie Recipes #193 - White Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe

White Chocolate Cheesecake
Submitted by Jeannie
Editor's Note: Okay, this isn't EXACTLY a pie, but I didn't think anyone would be too offended by this gorgeous sounding cheesecake recipe! :) And since it's made in a springform pan, it's sort of like a pie...

You will need a nine-inch springform pan.

For the crust:
1-2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 tablespoons granulated sugar

For the filling:
4 8-ounce packages of cream cheese
1-1/3 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/3 cups white chocolate wafers or 8 ounces of white chocolate baking bars

Preheat the oven 350 degrees. In a nine-inch
springform pan, mix the graham cracker crumbs,
melted butter, and sugar together. Press the
mixture across the bottom of the pan and up
the sides to form the crust. Put the crust in
refrigerator while you mix the filling.
With the paddle attachment of your stand-type
mixer, beat the cream cheese and sugar together.
Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth.
Drizzle in the melted chocolate while the beaters
are running. Pour into the crust.
Bake for 50 minutes or until the cake is done. Let
cool on a wire rack. After ten minutes, loosen the
sides with a spatula and remove the ring. Refrigerate
the cheesecake to cool completely.

Baker's note: Drizzle in the chocolate while it is
still warm. If the chocolate cools too rapidly, you
will have clumps in the cheesecake.
