Ingredients

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup marijuana-infused butter, melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Topping Choice 1: Fresh Strawberry Sauce
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Topping Choice 2: Chocolate Ganache
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Going Step by Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (165°C).
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and melted unsalted butter. Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan to form the crust.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Add the granulated sugar, flour, and marijuana-infused butter. Mix until well combined.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Pour the cream cheese mixture over the prepared crust in the springform pan. Smooth the top with a spatula.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes or until the center is set. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely.
  7. Once cooled, refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight to allow the cheesecake to set.
  8. For Topping Choice 1: Fresh Strawberry Sauce, combine the fresh strawberries, granulated sugar, and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the strawberries break down and the sauce thickens slightly. Let it cool before topping the cheesecake.
  9. For Topping Choice 2: Chocolate Ganache, place the semisweet chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl. In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat until it just begins to simmer. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate chips and let it sit for a minute. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth. Let it cool slightly before pouring over the cheesecake.
  10. 10. Once the cheesecake has chilled and the desired topping is prepared, carefully remove the sides of the springform pan. Spread the topping of your choice evenly over the cheesecake.
