My favorite Christmas dessert is this Cheese Cake recipe that a friend, Ruby, made for my birthday several years ago.
Crust: 6 oz. Crushed Zwieback Toast
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
1 tsp. Cinnamon
Mix, press into bottom and sides of spring form pan. Reserve 1/4 cup. Chill crust while fixing filling.
Filling: Beat 4 egg whites until stiff–set aside.
Mix 3 – 8 oz. Cream cheese packages with 1 cup granulated sugar and 1 tsp. Vanilla. Fold in egg whites. Pour into crust. Bake 25 minutes at 350°F.
Top with 1-pint sour cream, 4 Tbsp. Sugar, 1 tsp. Vanilla, and the reserved crumbs. Bake 5 minutes at 475°F.
Cool for several hours. Enjoy.
