Ellen’s Ridiculous Cheesecake

It’s ridiculous because it is so dang GOOD!


5 bricks of cream cheese
1 1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs
2 1/2 tsp vanilla

Optional: Cherry pie filling

1 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 stick butter, melted


Mix butter and crumbs and press in to pan (springform works best).  Bake crust at 350 for 5 minutes.  Cool.

Mix all filling ingredients except cherries.   Pour half of the filling in pan over cooled, prepared crust.  Pour in cherries and filling (to taste).  Pour the other half of the filling on top and swirl with a fork.

Bake cheesecake in a 300 degree oven for 45-50 minutes.  Turn off oven and leave cheesecake to cool overnight.  Chill and serve.
