A friend gave me this recipe about a year ago. I hesitated to try yet another cheesecake recipe and be disappointed. However, I was pleasantly surprised - not only is it the easiest to put together but it is exceptionally tasty as well.

I SUGGEST THAT YOU MAKE THIS CAKE THE DAY BEFORE YOU WANT TO SERVE IT. IT REALLY NEEDS TO BE SERVED NICE AND COLD.

How to Make New York Cheesecake

Step-by-Step

  1. Let the cream cheese warm up to room temperature before making the filling. This lets you beat more air into the cheese mixture, making a lighter, higher, and creamier cheesecake.
  2. Preheat oven to 350. Generously butter a 9 inch springform pan. At this point I dust the pan with graham cracker crumbs, but you can also make a graham cracker crust if you want to.
  3. Place one 8 oz. package of cream cheese, 1/3 cup of the sugar and the cornstarch in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until creamy, about 3 minutes; then beat in the remaining 3 packages of cream cheese.
  4. Increase the mixer speed to high and beat in the remaining 1 1/3 cups of the sugar, then beat in the vanilla. Blend in the eggs, one at a time, beating the batter well after adding each one. Blend in the heavy cream. At this point, mix the filling only until completely blended.
  5. Gently spoon the cheese filling into the pan. Place the springform pan in a large shallow pan containing hot water that comes a out 1 inch up the sides of the pan Bake the cheesecake until the center barely jiggles when you shake the pan, about 1 hour.
  6. Cool the cake on a wire rack for 1 hour. Then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until it is completely cold - preferably overnight. Remove the sides of the pan. Slide the cake off the bottom of the pan onto a serving plate, or, you can just leave it on the bottom of the pan.
