Why I Love This Recipe

I love cheesecake and I am ALWAYS looking for one recipe to top the last one- This one definitely did NOT disapoint! It is a very smooth and creamy versatile cheesecake.

You can add ingredients to it or top it with so many different things! I chose to make a light and creamy peppermint white Chocolate Cheesecake for Christmas!

Have fun with this versatile recipe and use your imagination!

2 Cups crushed shortbread or butter cookies
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 Pkgs (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened

Pour over crust. Place pan on a cookie sheet.

Bake at 350' for 35-40 minutes or until center is almost set.
