Christmas Cheesecake

leave a comment »

A christmas tradition that has spanned 2 decades has been making cheesecake for the fests!  The requests typically focus on Chocolate or Mocha. Here is a simple and very good Dark Chocolate Cheesecake, from my cheesecake reference book – The Joy of Cheeesecale from Bovbjerg and Iggers. This book is also a revelation, in that did not just provide recipes, but also a discussion of cooking mechanics and chemistry.


  • 5 oz (squares) of SemiSweet Chocolate
  • 1.5 lbs of Cream Cheese (3 Blocks of Philly)
  • 3/4 c Sugar
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 c Sour Cream


  1. In Oven place pan of water.
  2. Preheat Oven to 275F
  3. Melt Chocolate in Double Boiler.
  4. Mix *well* Cream Cheese ad Sugar,  until mixture is light.
  5. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
  6. Stir in chocolate and sour cream.
  7. Pour in pan with prepared crust – either graham wafers or oreo crumbs.
  8. Quickly plcae into the oven.
  9. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  10. Turn off oven and let it cool in the oven.
  11. Next day, add Chocolate shavings the next day.
