    Cooking Beast's Note:

    This New York-style cheesecake recipe appears in The Joy of Cheesecake by Bovbjerg and Iggers (1980). The recipe calls for a shortbread crust, but you can use graham cracker crumbs or whatever you want. This one is very rich, hence the name. Prep and cooking times do not include chilling overnight. Serve as is or try a topping such as blueberry or cherry pie filling or a raspberry coulis.

      I have been making this cheese cake for more than thirty years (Honest!) and all of my kids and my husband LOVE it. My mom and grandmother made a similar one, but when I made "the Heavy One," even they admitted mine was the best. I even burned out my Kitchen Aide Mixer from whipping those 2 1/2 lbs of cream cheese. When I was given a new mixer, I tried making this with three lbs of WHIPPED CREAM cheese and it actually worked just fine, I still make this version with my grandmother's Kitchen Aide mixer for the sheer pleasure of 'mixing' the old and the new.
