New York Cheesecake Ingredients:
New York Cheesecake Main Ingredients:
• Pie Crust (We use a ready-made graham cracker crust from the Keebler co.)
• 3 oz. Sour Cream
• 12 oz. Cream Cheese (We prefer the one from the Philadelphia co.)
• Vanilla; ¼ tsp. (if pure vanilla) – ½ tsp. (if using imitation vanilla)
• ¼ tsp. Lemon Juice
• 1 Large Egg (whole)
• 3 tbsp. Sugar
New York Cheesecake Topping Ingredients:
• 13 oz. Sour Cream
• 2 tbsp. Sugar
New York Cheesecake Instructions:
Combine the cream cheese, vanilla, egg and lemon juice in a mixing bowl. Whip contents until smooth. Stir in the sugar and blend. Stir in sour cream and blend. Pour mixture into the crust and bake at 300 degrees for 35 minutes. Remove cheesecake from the oven and allow it to sit.
Next, whip topping ingredients together and spread over the top of the cheesecake. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove cheesecake from the oven and allow it to sit at room temperature for 20 minutes.
If you have used a ready-made pie crust, attach the clear plastic top and put it in the refrigerator to chill.
New York Cheesecake is best served chilled.
