AMARETTO CHEESECAKE by @WilmaDelgado
3 lbs cream cheese, softened
18 oz sugar (2 ¼ C)
4 ½ oz Amaretto (9 tbs)
1 cap lemon juice
1 cap vanilla
Mix all until smooth. Place in prepared graham cracker crust in springform pan (12” minimum). Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until firm and dry in middle. Turn off oven and open door. Leave cheesecake in oven 1 hour. Chill.
For crust in 12” springform, make double recipe on box – it may even take a little more. Use the back of a large metal spoon to press crust mix firmly up sides of pan almost to top of pan, then do bottom. The baking time may take longer depending on oven. Chill completely before removing sides of pan.
