Goat Cheese Cheesecake
Recipe Note: MODERATE
from Sue, serves 8 

2 cups crushed graham crackers
2 TBS sugar
1/2 stick melted butter
12 oz goat cheese - room temperature
12 oz cream cheese - room temperature
1 cup of sugar
3 eggs
1 cup cream
1 TBS Lemon juice
1 TBS Vanilla

Preheat the oven to 350 F. In a small bowl, combine the crushed graham cracker crumbs with the sugar, and melted butter. In a 10-inch springform pan, press down the mixture; smooth out  with the bottom of a large cup. Bake the crust for 10 minutes, then let cool.

In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, cream the goat cheese and cream cheese. Once combined add the sugar. Then add the eggs one at a time. Use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides. Add the cream, lemon juice, and vanilla. Make sure the mixture is well combined and uniform.

Pour the mixture into the spring-form pan. Cook for ~40 minutes or until slightly puffed. Let the cake come to room temperature, then cool overnight in the fridge before serving. Top with your favorite fruit.
