Mark and I were married in a casual outdoor ceremony. Our "wedding cake" consisted of 30 delicious cheesecakes, including this easy but special one.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 48 squares)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup butter, melted
  • FILLING:
  • 3 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 5 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 4 ounces German sweet chocolate, melted and cooled

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 piece) equals 313 calories, 18 g fat (10 g saturated fat), 102 mg cholesterol, 234 mg sodium, 36 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 5 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine cracker crumbs and sugar; stir in butter. Divide in half and press onto the bottom and up the sides of two ungreased 9-in. pie plates. Refrigerate while preparing filling.
  2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually add sugar, beating until smooth. Add eggs, beat on low speed just until combined. Beat in vanilla. Remove 1-1/2 cups cheese mixture to a small bowl; fold in melted chocolate. Divide remaining cream cheese mixture between pie crusts.
  3. To make the chain of hearts on each pie, drop teaspoonfuls of chocolate filling, forming 8 drops equally spaced around outside edges and 4 drops in center. Starting in the center of one outer drop, run a knife through the center of each to connect the drops and form a circle of hearts. Repeat with center drops.
  4. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool on wire racks for 1 hour. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 2 pies (8 servings each).
Tip: You can skip the chocolate step and top the plain cheesecake with cherry or blueberry pie filling instead.

"Great recipe! Pretty, and yummy! It tells you to take out too much of the cheese mixture to make into chocolate: take out only 1 cup, or else you'll have extra chocolate, that if you use, will ruin the design."
