Mona’s Cheesecake

Updated: Mar 21, 2021

Yesterday would have been my parents anniversary. Today is one of my brother’s birthday. So I thought I would post a recipe to honor both. Mona was my mom. She was a wonderful cook. I only hope I can cook as well as she did. I know that this recipe is a favorite of my brother Ken. His wife, Edna, has been known to make multiple cheesecakes for holidays. It is a wonderful dessert on a warm evening.


2 cups Graham Cracker Crumbs

1 Stick Margarine, melted

½ cup sugar


2 8oz Cream Cheese

2 Eggs

2/3 Cup Sugar

1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract


1 8oz Sour Cream

Bake again at 425 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool before putting in the refrigerator.
