New York Cheesecake

I got this recipe from allrecipes.com. It turned out wonderful though I didn't let it sit in the oven the full three hours as I had to start dinner, so it did crack. I also made a homemade blackberry sauce.

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

1 Hr

Ingredients

3 Tbsp
butter, melted
18
graham crackers, crushed
1/4 c
flour
1 c
sour cream
4 - 8 oz pkg
cream cheese
1 1/2 c
sugar
2/3 c
milk
4
eggs
1 tsp
lemon zest
1 tsp
orange zest

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Lightly grease the bottom and sides of a 9-inch springform pan.
2
Mix graham cracker crumbs and melted butter in a bowl until evenly moistened. Press crumb mixture into the bottom and about 1/2-inch up the sides of the springform pan.
3
Mix flour, sour cream, and vanilla extract in bowl. Set aside.
4
Stir cream cheese and sugar with a wooden spoon in a large bowl until evenly incorporated, 3 to 5 minutes.
5
Pour milk into cream cheese mixture and mix until just combined.
Whisk in eggs, one at a time, stirring well after each addition.
Stir in lemon zest, orange zest, and sour cream mixture; whisk until just incorporated.
6
Pour mixture into prepared springform pan.
Bake in the preheated oven until the edges have nicely puffed and the surface of the cheesecake is firm except for a small spot in the center that will jiggle when the pan is gently shaken, about 1 hour.
When the cheesecake is done, turn off the oven and let it cool in the oven for 3 to 4 hours. This prevents any cracks from forming on the top of the cheesecake.
