Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degree F. For crust, in a small bowl combine graham cracker crumbs, hazelnuts, and butter. Press into bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack. For filling, in a large mixing bowl beat cream cheese, sugar, cardamom, and vanilla until smooth. Stir in eggs.

Instructions Checklist
  • In a small saucepan heat lingonberries or cranberries over low heat until melted or completely softened; stir occasionally. Strain syrup from berries. (Cranberries have less syrup, so if using them, add enough cranberry mixture to drained syrup to make 3/4 cup.) Cover; chill syrup. Reserve berries. Stir strained berries into cream cheese mixture. Pour cream cheese mixture over baked crust. Place springform pan in a shallow baking pan. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a 2-1/2-inch area around the outside edge appears set when gently shaken.

Divine, simply divine. I loved the addition of hazelnuts to the Graham cracker crust. My son loves everything lingonberry so I made this for his birthday. It was a hit with the whole fam.
