How to make it

  • Mix the crust ingredients together well.
  • Press them into a well-greased 10-inch pie dish to form an even crust.
  • Pour the boiling water over the currants to plump them for one minute. Then drain them and spread on paper towels to dry.
  • Beat the cream cheese and butter together.
  • Add the salt, sugar, vanilla, and eggs.
  • Stir in the currants - do not beat them so you avoid breaking them up.
  • Pour this batter into the crust and level the batter.
  • Bake at 350 for 35 minutes in the middle of the oven.
  • Raise the oven rack and broil for a minute +/- to color the top of the cake attractively.
  • Let sit to cool to room temperature before serving or refrigerate.

    Another recipe for me to save to the longer and longer list! I have a recipe that also has currants in it. It has been fabulous when I've made it. Curious to see how similar they are. One can never have enough cheesecake recipes.
