Ingredients

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 ¼ cups heavy cream
  • 3 8-oz package cream cheese, (softened)
  • 1/4 cup sour cream (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • optional pie filling

Instructions

  • Pulverize the graham crackers using a food processor until they become fine crumbs.
  • Mix together the crumbs, brown sugar and melted butter.
  • Pour the mixture into a 9-inch spring foam pan. Press with a glass and up the sides with your fingers. Make sure it’s packed in very tightly, otherwise, it can fall apart when cutting the cheesecake.
  • Freeze for about 10 minutes while you prepare the filling.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream on medium-high speed using a hand mixer until stiff peaks form.
  • In another bowl, add softened cream cheese and sugar. Beat on medium speed until completely combined and smooth.
  • Add sour cream and vanilla extract, and beat for another 2 minutes until smooth.
  • Add the whipped cream into the cheesecake filling. Gently mix until combined.
  • Take the graham cracker crust from the freezer and pour the cheesecake filling on top of the crust. Smooth the top with an offset spatula.
  • Cover with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Place it in the refrigerator for 6 hours or up to 2 days.
  • Gently remove the rim. Serve with pie filling and enjoy!
