This post has been provided by Ellen from Shimmer and Tulle as part of the Multi-Coloured Blog Swap Carnival. A chance to swop blog posts from around the country and in my case the world! Mine is over on Michelle's Mummy from the Heart, go take a look!

And even better the post I have the honour of posting is for a a recipe.......of my most favourite thing in the world! 

Straight over to Ellen
Today, I will share with you a recipe for an AMAZING cheesecake that has always been a crowd pleaser. Straight from the Philadelphia Cream Cheese company.

Vanilla Mousse Cheesecake

prep: 20 min
total:6 hr 15 min
servings: 16 servings

    40 *NILLA Wafers, finely crushed (about 1-1/2 cups)
    3 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
    4 pkg. (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened, divided
    1 cup sugar, divided
    1 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. vanilla, divided
    3 eggs
    1 tub (8 oz.) **COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed

1. HEAT oven to 325ºF.
2. MIX wafer crumbs and butter; press onto bottom of 9-inch springform pan.
3. BEAT 3 pkg. cream cheese, 3/4 cup sugar and 1 Tbsp. vanilla with mixer until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Pour over crust.
4. BAKE 50 to 55 min. or until center is almost set. Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool completely in pan.
5. BEAT remaining cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with mixer in large bowl until blended. Whisk in COOL WHIP; spread over cheesecake. Refrigerate 4 hours. Remove rim of pan before serving cheesecake.

And in my opinion, what is vital to the success of your cheesecake --- add one egg at a time and don't overbeat, just till blended and not yellow-y egg color. Also, when about to serve, let relax outside of fridge for about 15-30 minutes
I love the name of Ellen's blog and it's got a great feel about, get yourself over there and take a look at her other posts, something for everyone.

While you are at it, go and take a look at some of the blog swapping going on over at Trouble Doubled who has taken the time to organise all this, no mean feat when you see the numbers involved! 

Did some research on alternatives
* Nilla Wafers - looks like ladies fingers maybe a good alternative or digestive biscuits.
**COOL WHIP Whipped Topping - looks like dream topping maybe a UK alternative.
