Bananas Foster Cheesecake

Cheesecake Extraordinaire:
More than 100 Sumptuous Recipes
for the Ultimate Dessert
by Mary Crownover, 1994, Contemporary Books


Cookie Crust:
11 vanilla sandwich cream
cookies, crushed

3 tablespoons butter, melted

Bananas Foster Filling:
24 ounces cream cheese, [softened]
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
5 teaspoons cornstarch
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 eggs
1 egg yolk
2/3 cup puréed banana (2 small bananas)
3 tablespoons banana schnapps
3 tablespoons light rum
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

For the cookie crust: In a small bowl stir together crushed cookies and melted butter until well combined. Press crumb mixture evenly onto the bottom of a greased 9-inch springform pan.
For the filling:
In a large bowl combine cream cheese, brown sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Add
eggs and egg yolk, one at a time, mixing to combine after each addition.
Beat in puréed banana, banana schnapps, rum and vanilla extract. Pour
the cream cheese mixture over the crust. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 15 minutes.
Lower the temperature to 225 degrees F. and bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until the center no longer looks wet or shiny. Remove the
cake from the oven and run a knife around the inside edge of the pan.
Turn the oven off; return the cake to the oven for an additional 30
minutes. Chill, uncovered, overnight.

Just in case this cheesecake isn’t quite rich enough to suit your taste,
top it off with

Caramel Butter Sauce:
1 cup butter
1 cup light brown sugar
2 tablespoons corn syrup
2 tablespoons dark rum
2 tablespoons Galliano
3 bananas, peeled, and cut into
3/4-inch rounds

1/4 cup heavy cream, scalded

Melt butter with brown sugar and corn syrup in heavy saucepan, stirring often. Stir in the rum and Galliano. Bring to a boil and simmer 2 to 3 minutes, until thickened and bubbling. Add 3 bananas, peeled and cut
into 3/4-inch rounds. Remove from heat and slowly pour in hot heavy cream, stirring constantly. Top each slice of cheesecake with a generous portion of this scrumptious sauce.
