Borden’s Party Cheesecake

This Party Cheesecake is the perfect example of classic, elegance, and perfection. Borden’s may have brought the recipe to the pages of Ladies’ Home Journal back in 1951, but this simple recipe is just as appealing today as it was when it was first published.

One of the first things that you may notice in the picture (and that we have changed in the recipe below), is that this cheesecake calls for zweiback crumbs, and not graham crackers. You can read all about zweiback right here if you want. We made this change just because they can be a little difficult to find. If you want to make this recipe 100% identical to the original, you may have to hit a European specialty market, or order your zweiback online.

Now this cheesecake says that it is for parties, and doesn’t come even close to being as fancy as many more modern versions…but feel free to jazz it up any way you want. Drizzle some chocolate over the top, add nuts, maybe even add some fruit to the batter before baking it! There really is no end to the variations you can add to this.

Borden’s Party Cheesecake

Yield: 12-14 slices

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 - 8oz. packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1 cup sugar
  • butter

Instructions

  1. Butter 8" spring form pan. Sprinkle bottom and sides with 2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs, pressing any extra crumbs evenly on bottom.
  2. Soften 1 and 1/2 lb cream cheese. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla. Cream until fluffy.
  3. Beat whites of 4 large (5 medium) eggs until foamy. Add 1 cup sugar, in thirds, beating after each addition. Beat until stiff.
  4. Fold egg whites gently into cream cheese. Pour into spring form pan.
  5. Bake at 350F for about 25 minutes (center will be soft). Allow to cool.
  6. Chill 3 to 4 hours. Remove from pan. Top with fresh, frozen, or canned fruit. Cut into slices with a thin knife, as the texture will be light and moist.

Notes

To make a family sized cheesecake: use half the ingredients, and bake in a 9" pan with a removable bottom.

On another unrelated note; I know it has been ages since we added anything to the site. Needless to say, there have been many, many things going on around here. BUT, we are going to be shooting for a new post at least once per week.
