This Weekend in Hedonism (Segment 3)

  • Cheryl's Recipe Corner!
  • New York Style Cheesecake
  • Ingredients
    • 15 graham crackers, crushed      
    • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
    • 4 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese 
    • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
    • 3/4 cup milk
    • 4 eggs
    • 1 cup sour cream
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Directions
    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease bottom and sides of a 9 inch springform pan. In a medium bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs with melted butter. Press onto bottom of springform pan. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with sugar until smooth (DO NOT OVER BEAT!). Stir in milk, and then mix in the eggs one at a time, mixing just enough to incorporate. Mix in sour cream, vanilla and flour until smooth. Pour filling into prepared crust. Fill a pan full of hot water, and place on your lower rack of your oven, below your cheesecake.  Place your cheesecake on the rack above (check your water pan occasionally, and make sure that there is always water in it.) Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. Turn the oven off and let cake cool in oven with the door closed for 5 to 6 hours (DO NOT OPEN DOOR!); this prevents cracking. Chill in refrigerator until serving.
