**Pro Tip: Before you even get started with your cheesecake, you’ll want to plan ahead and make sure the cream cheese, sour cream and eggs are at room temperature. Omg!
Cheesecakes, however, will often look set on the outside ring of the circle, but still slightly jiggly in the center. Absolutely LOVE this recipe. Hi Sally! I can not find sour cream in my country what is a good substituto? 25,626 suggested recipes. This is the best Cheesecake we’ve ever had! Yum!
It’s a perfect thing to bake while stuck inside during shelter-in-place, when you don’t have anywhere else to go and don’t mind hanging out near your oven.

Let the cheesecake sit in the oven in the water bath as it cools down for 1 hour. Simply wonderful, I dumped all my other cheesecake recipes, What can I use instead of graham crackers?
Use any type of cookie or cracker that you’d like. No unnecessary browning around the edges. That was a comment by Laurel, a random commenter, not Lauren . There is a BLOG and a recipe… read the recipe step 7… 325 for 30 … 250 for 45, I have the recipe of an outstanding restaurant. Since classic is the keyword of the day, we’re sticking with cheesecake’s main squeeze: a graham cracker crust. (Note: if you notice the cheesecake browning too quickly on top, tent it with aluminum foil halfway through baking.) Tap again if any more air bubbles surface. Scrape the sides of the bowl as needed. I’m trying to understand & not be rude..If the best restaurant recipe doesn’t use sour cream, why would you?
Once I remove from the oven and the water bath, should I cover the cheesecake with plastic wrap?
It was a lot easier than I ever thought cheesecake could be. The changes i made to the original recipe were to one and three fifths yes exactly that the crumb crust because i like those that go up the walls you still might have a smidge more than you need but i figure it is less annoying than measuring the. This cheesecake is new york style fool proof easy and super delicious. And as always, make sure all of the cheesecake batter ingredients are at room temperature so the batter remains smooth, even, and combines quickly. The BEST recipe out there! Used a 7” springform pan, which was perfect for halving the recipe.
Happy baking! I want to make this delicious looking cheesecake for a quarantine birthday.
I make almost all your recipes and honestly love them all I couldn’t sleep tonight cuz my two year old woke up and I’m about 8 months pregnant and had a huge craving I make so many cakes but never made a baked cheese cake before funny but true so I thought I would try yours its about 4:30 am right now and it’s in the oven and I know I have to wait till tomorrow so I’ll post a review on how it was super excited just wanted to say thank u for all your great recipes you have been a huge inspiration to me to the point where I’m opening a baking business thank u so so much. So nicely described and look mouthwatering. The changes i made to the original recipe were to one and three fifths yes exactly that the crumb crust because i like those that go up the walls you still might have a smidge more than you need but i figure it is less annoying than measuring the. It’s thick, it’s velvety, and there’s no denying its decadence. He’s reviewed it as the best cheesecake he’s ever eaten (even says it’s better than his mom’s)!! This will help the ingredients cream together more smoothly.**.
Make sure you pack the crust in very tight and pre-bake it to help prevent any sogginess.
For neat slices, wipe the knife clean and dip into warm water between each slice. Yes No No Preference.
Thanks again! Even heard “this is the best cheesecake I’ve ever had” from a couple people at thanksgiving! Cheesecake is a time-consuming, somewhat expensive dessert to make. Beating cold ingredients together will result in a chunky over-beaten cheesecake batter, hardly the way we want to start! Many factors are at play like the springform pan leaking, the surface of the cheesecake cracking, under-baking, over-baking, etc. Also the knife trick for cutting is a game changer! WOWOWOWOWOW. We’re trying out lots of your recipes right now.
They gave it two thumbs up! I promise a water bath is nothing complicated. They will be going to a former customer who is now my co-worker. I’ll echo the others: this is really the best! Thanks for posting this recipe on line.
