HOW DO YOU MAKE NEW YORK CHEESECAKE?

  • Preheat oven to 325.
  • Mix together your crust ingredients (graham crackers, sugar and butter) and press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9″ springform pan and then set in refrigerator.
  • In bowl of a stand mixer add your cream cheese and beat until smooth and lumps are gone then add in your sugar slowly until combined.
  • Next add in your eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. This ensures that they are fully incorporated evenly.
  • Then add in your vanilla extract and sour cream just mixing until combined.
  • Pour into your prepared crust and wrap pan in heavy duty tin-foil and place in large roasting dish and fill dish about half way up your springform pan with hot water (the water bath helps the cheesecake from not cracking).
  • Reduce oven heat to 300 and bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes then turn off heat and leave in oven for another hour until center is set.
  • Remove from oven and place on counter to cool to room temperature and then refrigerate for an additional 8 hours.

NY Cheesecake

We did two versions for our New York Style Cheesecake recipe, we did a classic cherry topping and then did a dulce de leche and some flaked salt.

Now the verdict is out in our house and it is a tie between which one we like best. I love cherry topping as does my husband but I also love caramel and salt sooooo, I was in love every which way when it came to our topping options!
