Recipe Keeper #8: Uncle Scott's Cheesecake

I've mentioned several times that I have a family full of great cooks. I usually imply family members on my father's side, however my mom's brother, Scott, is a great cook. He has even run his own restaurant.

Long ago at a family gathering he made a cheesecake, and since then he's been known as "Uncle Scott, the uncle that makes the awesome cheesecake".

I don't see Uncle Scott often. In fact, it's been a long while. However, for my bridal shower my Aunt Janae (Uncle Scott's wife) sent me his cheesecake recipe - something we've pined after for a long, long time.

Without further ado:

Uncle Scott's Cheesecake

  • 4-5, 8 ounce packages of cream cheese

  • 1/4 pound of butter

  2. Mix the cream cheese and butter well.

  4. Add vanilla and lemon juice and cornstarch. Mix.
  5. Add the eggs one at a time, beating until smooth.
  6. Pour the mixture into a buttered springform pan.
  7. Place the pan in a larger pan and add warm water to come up half-way up the pan.

  10. Chill it in the fridge before serving for at least 6 hours.
