Classic Cheesecake

Yields16 ServingsTotal Time5 hrs 15 mins

Easy to whip up, this classic cheesecake is a smooth and rich way to end a meal. Though the taste is decadent, using Neufchâtel cheese means this confection has fewer calories than regular cheesecake.

 6 whole graham crackers
 ½ cup walnuts toasted
 1 ⅛ cups granulated sugar divided
 2 tbsp butter melted
 1 tbsp water
 4 eggs
 1 tsp vanilla extract
 229 pkgs.

Preheat oven to 325°F.


Add graham crackers and walnuts to WildSide+ jar. Secure lid and press "Pulse" 16–20 times or until crackers and walnuts are ground to fine crumbs. Remove lid and stir.


Add 2 tbsp. (or ⅛ cup) sugar, butter, and water. Secure lid and pulse 3–5 times. Press crust onto bottom of 9-inch springform pan.


Add eggs, vanilla, Neufchâtel cheese, and remaining sugar to clean WildSide jar. Secure lid and select "Batter" or blend on Medium Low (speed 3 or 4) for 30 seconds. Pour mixture over crust.


Bake for 55 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool; loosen cake from rim of pan.


Refrigerate for 4 hours before serving.

Note: For more-even baking and to prevent cracking or sinking, consider baking cheesecake in water bath for 65–75 minutes or until center is almost set.
