This recipe makes the creamiest NY style cheesecake! It is a family secret recipe that luckily fell into my hands! It is told in her authoritative voice, "Don't touch that oven!" Don't worry, it actually is very easy to put together, and definitely worth it!

- If necessary, speed up the beating until VERY creamy.
- Pour batter into a 10 inch (preferably non-stick) springform pan.
