Muffie’s Cheesecake Recipe

#7
We are diligently working on assembling a Circle Z Ranch cookbook and boy are we finding some yummy recipes! Here is a sneak peak at one recipe from a long time guest who is quite the cook. This one is surprisingly simply and utterly delicious; it is a guest favorite. Hope you enjoy this Cheesecake recipe from Muffie’s kitchen.

 

 

Muffie’s Cheesecake

Make 1, 9 inch cheesecake

¾ cup graham cracker crumbs
2 Tbs butter
2 Tbs sugar
½ tsp cinnamon
pinch nutmeg
1 ½ pound cream cheese, softened
¾ cups sugar
3 eggs, room temperature

Crust: Mix graham cracker crumb, butter, spices and sugar until combined. Press into bottom and partially up sides of 9 inch spring-form pan. Bake for 8minutes.

Filling: Blend cream cheese and sugar. Scrape down bowl and heat until there are absolutely no lumps. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well. Add vanilla and pour over crust. Bake for 20 minutes or until set. Remove from oven.

Increase oven temperature to 500 degrees. Mix sour cream, sugar, and vanilla. Carefully spread over cheesecake. Return to oven and bake for 5 minutes.

Allow cheesecake to cool completely and then chill.

Circle Z Ranch Announces Winter Specials for 2017-2018 Season

p1020754Visiting a guest ranch in the Winter is honestly one of the best vacations you can gift to yourself and your family. An all-inclusive ranch vacation is not always an economical adventure, and at first glance the rates can look ominous. But time after time, old hands and new guests tell us they feel they get more value for the price they pay of visiting the Circle Z Ranch than with any other vacation. And that says a lot!

Just imagine being on vacation where your only decisions are should you take the morning and afternoon ride, or be more adventurous on the all-day ride? Should you watch your waistline at breakfast and eat oatmeal, or live a little with the fresh baked pastries, freshly prepared egg dishes and bacon? Would you sit on your porch and read that book that has been collecting dust for too long, or to join the other guests at cocktail hour? The beauty of a guest ranch is that it is like summer camp for kids, where everything is provided and you can be as active or as relaxed as you want. And we don’t nickel and dime you along the way. Your weekly rate covers everything: Meals, horseback riding, lodging, lessons, swimming pool, tennis courts, guided nature walks and astronomy nights, campfires and musical entertainment. And that, my friends, is the way to spend a vacation.

For those wanting to catch a break, we understand, so we offer 2 periods during our 6 month operating season where we reduce rates 10-15%.
