Ingredients You’ll Need

Cookie Crumbs. The crumbs are used to make the base of the cheesecake. Once pressed into place, they make a perfectly crunchy complement to the creamy cheesecake filling.

Melted Unsalted Butter. Used to bind the cookie crumbs together, butter ensures that the crust is not only delicious but firm as well.

Cream Cheese. Cheesecake wouldn’t be the same without the creamy, tangy goodness that only cream cheese provides. Every bite of this velvety ingredient makes for the perfect slice!

Brown Sugar. Adds sweetness to the dessert as well as just a hint of molasses flavor. This offsets the tang of the cream cheese nicely and adds flavor depth to the cake.

All-Purpose Flour. All we need is a touch of flour to give our cheesecake the perfect consistency.

Vanilla Extract. Vanilla is the perfect complement to cinnamon and sugar. It also adds a subtle aromatic flavor that can’t be matched.

Ground Cinnamon. The ingredient that makes snickerdoodles so irresistible. Cinnamon’s trademark warmth and slightly spicy, slightly sweet flavor brings the snickerdoodle flavor to life in our cheesecake.

Sour Cream. Like cream cheese, sour cream adds a touch of tanginess to the cheesecake. It not only adds to the creaminess of the treat but balances out the sweetness of the other ingredients.

Eggs. Eggs are wonderful binder. They not only keep all the ingredients together but ensure that our cheesecake is as smooth as possible.

Cinnamon Sugar Topping. The perfect topper to our creamy concoction. By adding the sweet and spicy mix, we’re crowning our dessert with the essence of snickerdoodles!

Snickerdoodle Cheesecake – Easy Breezy Prep!

Preparation. Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F. Next, you’ll need a 9-inch springform pan. Grease it and set it aside for a moment.

Crust Creation. In a bowl, combine the cookie crumbs and melted butter. They will form the crust of the cheesecake.

When you’re done, get the greased springform pan. Press the cookie crumb and butter mixture into the bottom of the pan.

Put it in the oven for about 10 minutes then remove it and let it cool off.

Cheesecake Filling. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ingredients needed to make the filling for the cake.

Beat together the cream cheese, brown sugar, flour, vanilla extract, and cinnamon until they’re smooth.

Now, add the sour cream. Mix again until everything is well combined.

Last, add the eggs one at a time. You’ll want to be sure each one is blended in before adding the next one.

Assembly. Once you’re done, pour the cheesecake filling on the cooled crust and spread it out evenly. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar topping over the cheesecake.

Baking. Put the cheesecake in the oven and bake it for 50-55 minutes. When the center of the cheesecake has a slight wobble to it, it’s done and you can take it out of the oven.

Cooling. Once the cheesecake is done baking, turn the oven off. However, don’t take the cake out just yet.

Leave it inside with the door slightly ajar for 15 minutes.

Afterward, take the cheesecake out and let it cool off until it reaches room temp.

Chilling. After it’s cooled off, over the cheesecake and stick it in the fridge for at least 6 hours. Ideally, you would leave it in overnight.

When it’s time to serve, take the cheesecake out of the springform pa, slice and enjoy every velvety bite!
