  • Heavy Cream- This will be used to help with the consistency.
  • Vanilla- Use pure vanilla for the best flavoring.
  • Lavender Syrup- This will be used for the main flavoring.

How to Make Lavender Cheesecake

Line a 7-inch spring-form pan with parchment paper and place it aside.

Use a food processor or blender to crush up the graham crackers. Pulse into fine crumbs.

Add the crumbs and sugar into a bowl and combine.

Add the butter into a heat-safe bowl and melt in the microwave.

Combine the butter and crumbs together until the crumbs are completely coated.

Place the crumb mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan and gently press down. Then, place into the freezer.

Add the cream cheese, heavy cream, and vanilla into the mixing bowl of a standing mixer and combine at low speed.

Pour in the sugar and lavender and combine until smooth.

Adding in the lavender syrup to the batter.

Put in a teaspoon of the food coloring gel and combine until fully incorporated. Since food coloring gel varies in intensity, you can start with 1/2 of a teaspoon until you reach the desired color.

Mixing in the ingredients in the mixing bowl.

Take the pan out of the freezer when the batter is ready.

Add the batter into the crust and smooth the batter into the pan. Then, place the pan back into the freezer for approximately 4 hours, or overnight for the best results.

Adding the batter into the prepared pan.

Decorate the Cheesecake:

Put the frosting into a large piping bag with a fluted tip and begin adding frosting to the top of the cheesecake.

Add some sprinkles on top of the frosting.

Slice the cheesecake into 2-3 inch pieces, then serve and enjoy!

Tip for cutting cheesecake:

The cheesecake can be very sticky and hard to cut with a knife. The key to cutting a perfect slice is measuring where you want to cut. Then, be sure to have a clean and smooth knife, use a piece of wax paper to wrap around the sharp end of the knife, then cut your cheesecake.

Ingredients
  

FOR THE CRUST:

  • 1 1/2 sleeves of Graham Crackers - about 13 or 14 crackers - crushed into crumbs
  • 2 Tablespoons of Sugar
  • 1 stick of butter - melted

FOR THE CHEESECAKE:

  • 4 - 8 ounce packages of Cream Cheese - softened
  • 3/4 cup of heavy cream
  • 1 cup of Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of Vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons of Lavender Syrup
  • Neon Lavender - or Neon Purple Food Coloring Gel - approximately 1 teaspoon

FOR THE TOPPING:

  • 1 can of Vanilla Frosting
  • Purple and white Sprinkles

Instructions
 

HERE'S WHAT YOU DO:

  • Line the bottom of a 7-inch Spring-form pan with Parchment paper, and set it aside.  Place the Graham Crackers in a food processor, or blender, and pulse until you have fine crumbs.  Pour the crumbs into a bowl, add the sugar, and stir to blend.  In a separate bowl, add the butter, and melt in the microwave.  Pour the melted butter over the crumbs, and stir to coat crumbs in the butter.  Pour the crumbs into the Spring-form pan, and press crumbs down evenly to form the crust.  Place the pan in the freezer.
  • In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, place the softened Cream Cheese, Heavy Cream, and Vanilla, and mix on low until well blended.  Add the sugar, and Lavender Syrup, and mix until smooth.  Add about a teaspoon of the Neon Lavender Food Coloring Gel, and blend until the Cheesecake batter is all one color, scraping down the sides of the mixing bowl, and blending until smooth and color desired is achieved. 
  • To decorate the Cheesecake:  Place the Vanilla Frosting in a pastry bag, with a large fluted tip (see link) and pipe dollops of frosting all around the edge of the cheesecake.  Sprinkle the frosting with Purple or Lavender and White Sprinkles.  Cut the Cheesecake into 2 to 3-inch pieces, serve, and Enjoy!

Notes

NOTE:  Since the cheesecake is frozen, you can take it out of the freezer and decorate it ahead of time, and place it back in the freezer.  Remove the Cheesecake 15 to 20 minutes before serving to soften slightly. Or, if you prefer, you can serve it frozen, which is great on a hot summer day!   ALSO:  The Lavender Syrup adds an aromatic sweetness to the cheesecake.
 
NOTE: Since some food coloring gels may vary in color intensity -  You can start with about 1/2 a teaspoon of the Food Coloring Gel, and keep adding a few more drops until you get the color that you want.  OR, you can start with a few drops, and keep adding until the desired color is reached.  When you have the color you want, remove the pan from the freezer, and pour the Cheesecake Batter on top of the crust.  Smooth the top of the cheesecake evenly in the pan, and place the pan back in the freezer, for at least 4 hours, or overnight for best results.
