Looking for a new dessert to try out this weekend? Need something special for a party but don't want to break the bank? We've got you covered. Check out this filled cheesecake recipe.
Instead of topping the cheesecake with pie filling, it is baked right in for a wonderful cross between traditional fruit pie and cheesecake.
1 cup flour
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 3/4 cups cherry pie filling (or any other flavor pie filling)
16 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup white granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 cups sour cream
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, oats, baking powder, brown sugar, and butter.
3. Press all but 3/4 cup of the crumb mixture into the bottom of a 10 inch round baking pan, forming a crust.
4. Spread the pie filling evenly over the top of the crust.
5. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
6. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar on low speed until well blended.
7. Add the vanilla and sour cream and beat until smooth. Beat in the eggs, mixing well after each addition.
8. Pour into prepared crust. Top with remaining crumb mixture.
9. Bake at 325 degrees F for 50-60 minutes. Remove from oven, cool to room temperature and refrigerate overnight.
How Long Will Cheesecake Last?
Sometimes, you wind up with leftovers no matter how delicious a dessert is. If you find yourself with leftovers of this filled cheesecake, you'll be wondering how long you can keep it before it goes bad. Keep in mind that cheesecake is very sensitive to heat. If it is exposed to temperatures above 90 degrees Fahrenheit for more than an hour, it needs to be discarded.
A prepared cheesecake can be stored in the fridge for 3-4 days. You may be able to get a little more out of your cheesecake than this, but we encourage you to be careful. Before consuming, make sure you thoroughly examine the cheesecake for signs of spoilage.
Signs of spoilage include an off odor, mold, an abnormal appearance, or a bad taste. Generally, you'll be able to tell pretty easily if your cheesecake has gone bad. Still, if your gut tells you not to eat it, listen to your gut. You definitely don't want to get food poisoning!
