New York Cheesecake

kept byPAK
recipe by

Almost all cheesecakes are rich and decadent, but New York cheesecake takes it to the next level! This ultra-indulgent version relies on lots of cream cheese, heavy whipping cream and eggs to achieve that signature silky-smooth taste. All of these ingredients also make New York cheesecake so tall. Standard cheesecake recipes are maybe an inch or two thick, but New York-style is often double that. So yes, cut us a slice. But make sure it's a small one!

Finally, New York cheesecake is often served plain (or with some simple berries on top) so the tangy flavor can really shine. If you're adding tons of toppings or add-ins, it's likely not New York cheesecake.


For the Crust:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
2 large egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the Filling:

5 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1-3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1-1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
5 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 large egg yolks
