Classic New York Style Cheesecake Recipe
New York Style Baked Cheesecake Recipe is a classic baked cheesecake recipe where creamy soft cheese is combined with eggs, cream and sugar, laid on a bed of crumbly biscuit crust and baked in the oven. Serve this heavenly cheesecake as is or along with some berry compote or lemon curd.
New York Style Cheesecake has a rich, dense, smooth and creamy consistency that is hard to resist. When in the US it would be very difficult to walk by Cheesecake Factory without wanting to eat cheesecake. I would for no given excuse miss having my favorite cheesecake.
Once I moved out of US and during my stay in France and back to India, I longed to make the same cheesecake, but could not source that exact same cream cheese that they used. Until recently in India a popular Indian local brand (Britannia) started selling it. It works great and gives me a sense of satisfaction of having the real cheesecake.
Classic New York Style Cheesecake Recipe makes a perfect cake for any party or get together. Make this cake for dessert the next time you have friends and family over for dinner.

How to make Classic New York Style Cheesecake Recipe
To begin making the Classic New York Style Cheesecake Recipe, first we will make the crust for the cheesecake.
In a medium sized bowl combine the biscuit crumbs and melted butter. Mix well to make a cheesecake crust mixture.
Press the crumbs evenly over the bottom of a springform pan. Refrigerate the pan along with the crumbs for about 15 minutes while you make the filling.
Into the bowl of the stand mixer place the cream cheese, sugar, and flour, cream, eggs and vanilla extract. Whisk until well blended and smooth peaks form.
Remove the crust from the refrigerator and spoon the cheesecake filling mixture into the pan.
Place the cheesecake into preheated oven at 180 degree Celcius. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until almost set.
Remove the cheesecake from the oven and allow it to cool completely.
Refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 14 to 15 hours to set well before serving. You can cover the cheesecake with a cling wrap or foil and freeze for a few weeks as well.
When you are ready to serve the New York Style Baked Cheesecake, serve it along with a strawberry compote.
