Classic Delicious New York Cheesecake

Classic Delicious New York Cheesecake created by Suzi y.

I put two old recipes together to create this recipe and have had many compliments on it being a "professional cheese cake."

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • To make the crust, mix graham crackers crumbs, butter, and 2 tablespoons of sugar in bowl.
  • Press mixture in bottom and sides of 9 inch springform pan.
  • In mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and remaining sugar for 2 minutes.
  • Add eggs and vanilla to mixture and mix until well blended.
  • Then stir or fold in sour cream.
  • Pour mixture in crust filled pan and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Then reduce to 200 degrees to bake for 45 minutes.
  • From here the cheese cake just needs to be chilled, but I recommend doing the following step if you have a few extra hours- Leave in warm oven, once you turn it off but leave door slightly open.
  • Let sit and cool for 2 hours and remove from oven.
  • Remove sides from pan and chill in refrigerator.

    My husband loves cheesecake. When we moved to a new town he could not find a bakery that made a decent (to him) cheesecake. He asked me to find a recipe and make one. I did NOT want to do this because he is so picky. I found this recipe and followed the directions exactly as written. According to my picky, cheesecake loving husband, it was "phenomenal." I have made used this recipe often and it turns out amazing every time. People like it because it is not too heavy, yet it is dense enough to be decadent.

    This does not deserve a 5-star rating. It deserves a three-star rating, but I’m doing it lower to try and tame the overall. Here’s why: It’s called “classic New York cheesecake” but it’s not dense enough or tangy enough to be classic NY. It’s a good recipe, easy to make, tasty and all, but doesn’t live up to the name. Also, too much sugar in the original recipe. I didn’t add any extra sugar to the Graham cracker crust. That left a whole cup for the cheese. However, I cut out 8 tbsp. from that cup to achieve a cake that isn’t overly sweet.

    Would it be okay to make this a couple of days ahead and keep in the fridge? Does it keep well? How about storing it afterwards? Does it freeze well? I think I will make it tomorrow, Wednesday, but the birthday is not until Friday. Would it keep well in the fridge? I can not see why not, but I have not made this before.

    This is a very tasty cheesecake and so easy to make. Great recipe for a beginner baker.
