Blue Bayou's Fantasia Cheesecake Recipe

Blue Bayou’s Fantasia Cheesecake


4 cups cream cheese (32 oz.)
2 cups sugar
14 tsp. salt
12 tsp. lemon flavoring
4 eggs

Graham Cracker Crust
1 cup graham cracker meal
1 tbsp. granulated sugar
14 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sour cream
2 tbsp. sugar


With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth. Gradually add sugar, blending thoroughly. Add salt and lemon flavoring and mix well. Add one egg at a time, blending thoroughly after each addition. Set aside.

Graham Cracker Crust
Combine first three ingredients and blend thoroughly. Press into a greased 9-inch spring form or cake pan. Pour in cheese mixture and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 70 minutes, or until golden on top. Cool thoroughly. If you have used a cake pan, place a board the same size as cake on top, then tip slightly until loose and turn over on a dish.

Combine sour cream and sugar and spread evenly on top of cheese cake. For variety, top the cake with fresh strawberries or any other pie filling.

Cook’s Note
You have the option on the final texture of this cheesecake. For a more cake-like texture bake about 10 minutes longer than called for in this recipe. For a creamier cake, remove five minutes earlier.
