Holiday Cheesecake

Comment on this recipe

Prep Time: 10 min Total Time: 3 hr 40 min Makes: 32 servings, 1 bar each I stumbled upon this recipe for a last minute pie contest we were going to enter in. We didn't enter it because it was too hot out and we thought it might not taste as good warm.

Ingredients

1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
3/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons sugar
3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs
Decorating gels
Colored sprinkles

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix crumbs, butter and 3 tablespoons sugar; press firmly onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking pan. Beat cream cheese, 3/4 cup sugar and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs; mix just until blended. Pour over crust. Bake 30 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight. Cut into 32 bars. Decorate with gels and sprinkles to resemble presents. Store leftover bars in refrigerator.
