Equipment

  • 1 9" springform pan
  • 1 Mixer

Ingredients

Graham Cracker Crust

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 8 tablespoons butter melted (1 stick)

Cheesecake Filling

  • 24 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup rainbow sprinkles

Instructions

Graham Cracker Crust

  • Preheat the oven to 325F.
  • Grease a 9” springform pan with non-stick baking spray and line the bottom with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter until they resemble wet sand.
  • Transfer the crust to the springform pan and press it gently into the bottom and sides, creating an even and compact crust that is about ¼-⅛” thick.
  • Bake the crust for 5 minutes. Then remove and set it aside to cool while you make the filling.

Cheesecake Filling

  • Add the softened cream cheese to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until the cream cheese is smooth and fluffy- about 1 minute.
  • Add the sugar, milk, sour cream, and vanilla and mix to combine. Make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • With the mixer on low speed, add the eggs one at a time.
  • Once all of the eggs have been added, gently fold in the sprinkles.
  • Pour the cheesecake mixture on top of the crust and bake it for 45-50 minutes or until the cheesecake is just set in the center.
  • Allow the cheesecake to cool to room temperature. Then, transfer it to the fridge to chill for at least four hours (preferably overnight).
  • Slice and enjoy! Store any leftover cheesecake in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days.

Notes

To give this cheesecake a birthday cake flavor, swap out the vanilla extract with a birthday cake emulsion flavoring.
