Eggless Mother's Day Cheesecake

Mother's Day is this weekend. Have you decided how to honor your mother or a significant woman in your life? I am making a cheesecake. No eggs involved in its creation. Instead of eggs, I use AQUAFABA - the liquid from a 14.5-16 oz can of chickpeas. Here is the recipe.

1/2 cup AQUAFABA
3- 8 oz. boxes of cream cheese
1-1/2 cups sour cream
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 8-9 tablespoons water

2 cups graham crackers
4 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons sugar

Mix AQUAFABA, and cream cheese together until smooth. Add in sour
cream and mix in remaining ingredients until smooth. Use an electric
mixer to blend ingredients.

Line a spring form pan with parchment paper on the bottom and grease
the sides of the pan. Mix the crust ingredients in a separate bowl.

Place the crust's ingredients into the bottom of the spring form pan
and press the mixture down using a cup. press part of the mixture
around the sides of the pan.

Pour the cheesecake mixture into the spring form pan on top of the
crust. Place into a 350 degree oven for 50- 90 minutes or until the
cake jiggles slightly.
