Maryland Party Cheesecake Recipe | My Crafty Zoo
Kaycee, thank you for inviting me to Crafty Zoo to post a favorite recipe. Readers of my mystery story, Three Sisters, will know that the main character, Emily Castles, is not a very good cook. Fortunately this is not one of her recipes and it works very well. It's an easy baked cheesecake recipe taken from a book called Cheesecakes by Maggie Black. I often make it for family parties and it's very popular. I'm English and we would call the base for this cheesecake a biscuit base. I buy the hard-baked, shop-bought plain kind like Rich Tea or Plain Digestive and smash them up in a plastic bag with a rolling pin, or put them in the food processor until they're crumbs. I think that American readers would usually use Graham Crackers, though if you can get hold of Rich Tea or Plain Digestive biscuits, do give them a go. An American friend suggested trying Oreo cookies, which sounds amazing, though I haven't tried it. We don't use cup measurements for baking, we use ounces (oz) and fluid
