Mexican Cheesecake

Ok, so I thought I was over the pneumonia! After laying around this weekend and Binky (cat) staring at me, literally, I decided to go back to the doctor. Another chest x ray showed the lungs were worse, so I have pretty much been home since Tuesday. I started feeling better this afternoon and hope it lasts. We'll see.I am planning on attempting to go back to work tomorrow. It's a staff meeting and we're eating chili! I was supposed to bring a dessert so I tried a new one. So, here's what I made this afternoon!

Mexican Cheesecake

Mexican Cheesecake

1 - 8oz package cream cheese (softened)
1 - egg
1 - 12 oz can evaporated milk
1 - 14 oz La Lechera condensed milk (sweetened condensed milk)
1 - tsp Mexican vanilla or pure vanilla extract
2 - prepared graham cracker crusts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend the first 5 ingredients in a blender and blend until creamy. Pour into prepared graham cracker crust. Bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown. Insert knife to test for doneness when knife comes out clean the cheesecake is done. Let cool, refrigerate and serve. This cheesecake is best served cold.

I would add a double handful of white chocolate chunks to send this over the top. TAC

I hope you liked the cheesecake. It is my favorite. I made homemade crust the second time and made a dulce de leche cheesecake, it was so good. I think the regular mexican cheesecakes would be great with strawberry pie filling on top. Glad you better.
