Delicious New York Style Cheesecake

Sharing is caring!

Hi, guys! Today I’m going to share my New York-Style Cheesecake recipe that I want to share with you today!  I got this delicious cheesecake recipe years ago from my college roommate, Becky.  This cheesecake is delicious…and pretty impressive looking if you put a nice fruit drizzle on a slice to serve it to company.  

 

New York-Style Cheesecake

Most of the time when I make this cheesecake I top it with a strawberry drizzle…I’ll explain how to make that at the end of the post.  However, sometimes I use caramel sauce, grated chocolate, or some homemade raspberry jam.  No matter how you top it, it is amazing!

New York-Style Cheesecake Instructions

Let all ingredients come to room temperature.

For this recipe you will need a ten inch springform pan, like the one below:

 

Pour into a greased 10 inch springform pan.  Place that springform pan into a roasting pan filled with enough hot water to come halfway up the side of the springform pan.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Bake for one hour or until top is brown (I usually start checking it every five minutes after 40 minutes as oven cooking times may vary).

 

While it is baking, you can make the strawberry drizzle if you like.  It’s super easy.  If you want to make strawberry drizzle to top your New York-style cheesecake, all that you have to do is just slice up some strawberries, add a tsp or two of water, then add sugar to taste.

 

Once the top is browned a bit, turn the oven off.  Open the oven door and let the cake cool in the oven for one hour.  Then remove it from the oven and let it stand for two hours.  Refrigerate for at least 6 hours before serving.

 

***Once little note…You will be tempted to cheat and just take the cheesecake out of the oven, pop it out of the springform pan, and then eat it right away.  DON’T!  I did that once.  It was literally a hot mess. The cheesecake completely fell apart.  Take the time and do it right…I promise it will be worth it!

 When ready to serve, cut into 16 slices using dental floss.  Wipe the floss after each cut.

 

Top your New York Style Cheesecake with the strawberry drizzle (recipe above) or whatever topping you like!  

 

My favorite toppings for this cheesecake are strawberries.  My husband loves it with raspberry jam on top.  No matter how you top it (or don’t top it at all), it is so good!

Notes

*This recipe does require planning ahead, but it is SO worth it! This is one amazing cheesecake recipe! You will need a few specific supplies, besides the usual stuff...

For this recipe you will need a 10 inch springform pan and a roaster pan.

I also recommend having UNFLAVORED dental floss on hand-it will give you a cleaner cut when you are slicing the cheesecake.
