Down Under Baked Cheesecake

6 ounces  graham cracker crumbs
3 ounces  butter -- melted
24 ounces  cream cheese -- softened
1 cup  sugar
4 whole  eggs
1 teaspoon  vanilla
1 cup  heavy cream -- (whipping cream)
1 cup  chocolate curls

Combine graham cracker crumbs with melted butter and press into the bottom and sides of springform (or pie) pan. Place in refrigerator to set. Beat cream cheese, gradually adding sugar, until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time; then add vanilla. Pour into pan. Bake in a slow oven (about 275 to 300 degrees) for about 1 hour, or until knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Turn the oven off and let the cake cool in the oven. It will crack on the top. Cover with the heavy cream when cooled. Grate the chocolate and sprinkle on top. Chill and serve.


Slice the pie, then pour the heavy cream over it to allow the cream to soak in better.

NOTES : This is a very simple recipe and extremely good. I got this recipe from our local hospital
fundraiser cookbook. The recipe was brought to our country from an exchange student from Australia.
