Cheesecakes are my passion.I have perfected for my tastes a NY style cheesecake that is dense, yet smooth and creamy. I prefer no crusts as I savor the cheesecake filling. People tell me this is the best they have tasted. I prefer baking in water baths to prevent cracking. Also note in recipe eggs are added in last and at low speed to prevent a large puff and fall.Enjoy
