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.

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.
