Let's Make It
1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2
For the crust
3
Mix cake mix, egg and butter for crust, with an electric mixer, until they are incorporated and crumbly.
4
Press into an ungreased 9x13 pan. Set aside.
For the filling
5
Beat cream cheese, eggs, sugar and vanilla on medium/high speed with an electric mixer for 2-3 minutes or until filling is smooth and creamy. Be careful not to overbeat the filling, as overbeating cheesecake causes cracks.
6
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until the cheesecake is set in the center.
7
Remove the cheesecake from the oven and set on a wire cooling rack to cool.
For the topping
8
Mix up the sour cream topping by stirring together the sour cream, sugar and vanilla. When fully mixed, spread the topping over the warm cheesecake and allow the cheesecake to finish cooling.
9
Once cool, spread the pie filling over the top of the cheesecake, cover and refrigerate until you are ready to serve. Alternatively, you can refrigerate the cheesecake without the fruit topping. When ready to serve, cut the cheesecake into squares and top with pie filling.
10
Alternatively, have a few pie filling options on hand and top the cheesecake squares with your guest’s favorite topping.

Enjoy!
