There's no cheesecake like New York cheesecake. And there's no New York-style cheesecake recipe as easy as this. (Two more great reasons to love New York!)

What You'll Need

  • 3 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 prepared (9-inch) graham cracker pie crusts
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 pint (16 ounces) sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. In a large bowl, blend the cream cheese and 1 cup sugar with an electric mixer. Add eggs, one at a time, then 1 teaspoon of vanilla; mix well. Distribute mixture evenly between the pie crusts.
  3. Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until firm. Remove from the oven and allow to cool 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, beat the topping ingredients until well blended. Pour evenly over the pies and bake an additional 5 minutes.
  5. Cool, then refrigerate 6 hours before serving.

Have made this cheesecake for years!!! Its wonderful. :)

This is not the New York Recipe. For the filling, the correct recipe has 4- 8oz packages of cream cheese, 1- tbsp vanilla extract, 1- cup of sour cream, 3 Tbsp of flour, and it is baked at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 5 minutes to 1 hour and 10 minutes. Beat cream cheese, sugar, flour and vanilla at medium speed with mixer until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition, just until blended. Then, blend in sour cream, pour of crust. Bake till center is almost set. Run-Knife or metal spatula around rim of pan to loosen cake, cool before removing rim of pan. Refrigerate 4 hour or overnight.

Now this is "the" recipe for New York Cheesecake. It is to die for! Thanks for sharing.

Buffalo-Style Deviled Eggs

This ain't your momma's deviled egg recipe! We decided to give this recipe a Buffalo-style twist! That's right, we took all the classic flavors and added in some hot wing sauce! Top it off with some bleu cheese crumbles, and you better believe our Buffalo-Style Deviled Eggs will have everyone saying, "OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!"
