Cheesecake ( Classic ) Recipe


1 lb Cream Cheese
1 1/2 c Sugar; Granulated
2 Eggs; Large
1/2 ts Cinnamon; Ground
1 ts Lemon Rind; Grated
1/4 c Unbleached Flour
1/2 ts Salt
Confectioners' Sugar
3 tb Butter
Fruit topping

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, cream the
cheese, 1 tb of the butter and the sugar. Do not beat. Stir in the
eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the
cinnamon, lemon rind, flour, and salt; blend well. Butter the pan
with the remaining 2 tb of butter, using your fingers to spread the
butter completely. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake
for 12 minutes at 400 degrees, then reduce the temperature to 350
degrees and bake for another 25 to 30 minutes. The knife should come
out clean. Cool the cake to room temperature, then sprinkle with
confectioners' sugar if desired or add a fruit topping.
