      My husband has been making this cheesecake since we got married (22 years ago.) He has laid claim to it as his own ;) The family fights over the last piece, usually for breakfast! My italian mother-in-law never wanted it at Easter since she was making her ricotta cheesecake! This year I am trying to cut back on carbs, so I made my own version with butter, ground nuts and a little splenda for the crust. I substituted the sugar for half the splenda, added a little lemon zest. You can barely tell the difference! Next time I may bake the crust for a few minutes, let it cool before you add the cheese mixture. Not bad for a carb/sugar free dessert!<br/><br/>NOTE: The original cookbook calls for the oven temp to be 325, not 350.

      This is by far THE greatest cheesecake ever. I'm totally spoiled by it and no other will do. Eating anything other then New York style is no longer acceptable. The recipe is easy to follow and turn out fabulously. The only thing I do is make sure I make it a day or two ahead of time to give it plenty of time to chill.
