Crumbly Crust Cannabis Cheesecake
Graham crackers, cream cheese, and cannabis – sounds like the perfect combo! It is one very delicious treat that you can make for yourself or share it with someone and it doesn’t require the skills of the world-class baker. To make this marijuana cheesecake, you will need the following:
For the crust:
- 1/2 cup finely ground graham crackers
- 5 tablespoons melted cannabutter
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
For the filling:
- 21 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 16 ounces sour cream
Use a 9×9 inch springform pan and use a bit of cannabutter on the entire surface and the walls of the pan.
In a bowl, mix the ground graham crackers, the melted cannabutter, the sugar and the salt. Place the ingredients onto he bottom of the pan and press them to form the crust. Raise the crust higher for an inch on the walls of the pan.
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Mix the cream cheese with an electric mixer at a medium speed until it turns fluffy. Reduce the speed and add the eggs one by one. Add the sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and mix until you get an even filling.
Add the filling on top of the crust in the springform pan.
Bake for 45 minutes. Leave the cake to rest for 5 minutes after taking it out of the oven but don’t turn the oven off.
To top this cake, fold together the sour cream with a tablespoon of sugar and a teaspoon of sugar. Spread it on top of the cheesecake and place it back in the oven. Bake for another 10 minutes.
When you take the cake out of the oven, run a knife around the edges. Leave the cake to cool and then place it in the fridge for at least 6 hours.
Open up the springform pan and enjoy your delicious cannabis cheesecake! Remember, sharing is caring so don’t keep it all for yourself!
