I have had this cheesecake recipes for years. I got from a friend who got it from a friend of theirs. Annnnnnd it is amazing! I love that you can change up the topping to fit just about every occasion & holiday. In the summer we use fresh fruit or strawberry jam as a topping. Buuuuuut during the holidays caramel is the topping of choice. Mix it with a little bit of chocolate dip when you serve it, & you will have a dessert that is sure to be a hit at your next holiday party! 🙂

Here’ s the recipe. 🙂


  • 1 cup cinnamon graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

Mix well and press into a 10 inch springform pan with a spoon. Set aside. I usually put it in the refrigerator while I am making the rest because it helps it to set up better.



  • Three 8-ounce packages of Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
  • juice from half a lemon (about 2 tablespoons)

Beat cream cheese and lemon juice in a large mixing bowl until soft and creamy.

  • 5 eggs (set these out when you begin so they will be at room temperature)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Beat on medium speed for 10 minutes ~ scraping sides of bowl often.  Pour mixture into crust and bake at 350° for 45 minutes.

You’ll know it’s done when you touch the center and it bounces back. When done remove to a wire rack and let stand for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile combine in a small bowl ~

  • 1-1/2 cups sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Stir well and spread over cheesecake.  Bake at 350° for another 10 minutes.  Cool.  Chill in refrigerator before removing from pan.


Pour one bag of Kraft Caramel Bits into a microwave safe bowl. Melt in the microwave, stirring often until melted.
