Say Cheese!

I love cheesecake, though have never made one from scratch.
The cafe we go to for Hubby’s gluten-free carrot cake (which is to die for) also do the most delicious homemade cheesecakes EVER so I thought I’d have a go at making one.
The recipes I’ve found on-line (all my cookery books got given to charity when we bought the boat) are either baked or use gelatine. I spoke to the lady today and she said her filling was simply soft cream cheese, whipped cream and flavouring.
The thing is, I can’t find a recipe like that to get the quantities, so I’m asking for my readers’ input.
I’m familiar with making the base with melted butter and smashed crushed digestive biscuits (great therapy for the frustrated!), but it’s the filling that intrigues me.
Is it equal quantities of cheese and cream? Does it have to be cooked as the packet mixes I’ve used are simply whisked with milk and put in the fridge. Do you add sugar or not?

Any simplistic Di foolproof recipes would be appreciated.
Not diet friendly I know, but a little of what you fancy and all that………………..

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I too love cheese cake. Once you get this figured out, make sure you post the recipe. 🙂 I’m sorry you had to part with your cookbooks, although I get it, and you are to be commended for doing so @ the time….maybe for your birthday or some special occasion, you can think about getting another one? Doesn’t have to be new…I love old cook books. BTW I have another loaf of Rye bread going this morning. Friend on fb commented rye bread is her favorite bread, thought I would bake one this morning for her..maybe take a quick road trip this afternoon and drop it off as a surprise. Didn’t tell her I was going to do it, just in case it doesn’t turn out.
