  • Ingredients Required 9 items


  • Graham cracker crumbs in a cup
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • Filling
  • 2 pounds of room-temperature cream cheese
  • 1.3 cups of sugar
  • quarter cup cornstarch
  • 2 vanilla bean seeds
  • 2 substantial eggs at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup whole milk 3/4 cup cream, or 3/4 cup half-and-half


Directions to Prepare 8 steps
Making the crust The sugar and graham cracker crumbs should be combined. Put two tablespoons in the bottom of seven 1/2-pint Mason jars or other canning jars. Press down lightly. Set the jars aside.
Making the batter Put the softened cream cheese in the mixing bowl. To aerate and break up any lumps, beat for two minutes at medium-high speed. Make careful to at least twice scrape the bowl.
Add the sugar and cornstarch after stopping the mixer and cleaning the bowl. Beat on medium speed for 2 more minutes. Once more stop, scraping, and adding the cream, eggs, and vanilla. Beat for 2 more minutes on low speed.
Prepare a 7- to 8-quart slow cooker for baking. Place the crust-filled jars into the pot. Make sure not to dribble any cheesecake batter down the outside of the jars as you fill each one to the 3/4 mark. Make sure not to dribble any cheesecake batter down the outside of the jars as you fill each one to the 3/4 mark.
Each jar's canning lid should be lightly placed on top. As you fill the crock pot, do this to stop water from dripping into the cheesecake. Carefully pour warm water into the crock pot around the jars. The water level should come 3/4 of the way up the sides of the jars. Remove the jar lids once you have finished pouring them and store them for later.
Cook for one to two hours on high in a covered slow cooker. The timeframes could vary significantly because every slow cooker is unique. When a knife is poked into the cheesecakes, approximately 1/2" from the edge, and it emerges clean, the cheesecakes are finished baking.
The cheesecakes should rest for about 20 minutes to cool slightly before touching the slow cooker once it has been turned off. Before sealing and storing the jars in the refrigerator to chill for several hours or overnight, remove the jars and set them on the counter to cool for a further hour.
To serve, simply open the jar, top it with fresh berries, chocolate chips, hot fudge, or whipped cream, and dive in with a long-handled spoon. These are very rich cakes, so one jar will feed two people or any leftovers can be refrigerated for serving later.
